Our prediction for this Championship match:
Reading play host to Huddersfield Town at their Select Car Leasing Stadium in the Championship round 12. The Royals did well to bounce back from a 3-0 loss to Sunderland, with the team moving closer to automatic promotion places, but they should not stop now. Tom Ince, who scored the winner at Wigan, should keep his place in the starting XI, while all Long, Sarr, Moore, Ejaria, Azeez, and Dann remain on the sidelines through injuries.
The Terriers, on the other hand, managed to put an end to their three-game losing run before the international window, with the team beating Cardiff thanks to Jordan Rhodes’ goal. Huddersfield, though, are not regarded as good travellers, which is probably the main reason why we are going to bet on the promotion-chasing hosts this time out. Both Tyreece Simpson and Matty Pearson are injured for the visiting side.
Highlighted Player (Junior Hoilett):
Junior Hoilett began his youth career at Blackburn Rovers and he spent five years at Ewood Park. After ending his loan spells with German sides Paderborn and St. Pauli Junior Hoilett returned to Blackburn Rovers and it has to be noted that he scored his first goal for the Riversiders in a pre-season friendly against Leigh Genesis.
Speaking of competitive games, the Canada international netted his first goal for Blackburn in a 3-1 League Cup victory over Gillingham. In 2012 the pacey winger joined Queens Park Rangers and he played for the capital club from 2012 to 2016. In October 2016 Junior Hoilett signed a deal with Cardiff City and he made his debut for the Championship side on October 14 against Bristol City.
Hoilett was born in Brampton, Ontario and, as a result, he represents Canada on the international stage. He made his Canada debut in a 1-1 draw with Ghana in an international friendly.
Highlighted Team (Huddersfield):
Back in 1926 Huddersfield Town became the first English club to win three straight domestic trophies. Since 1908 the Terriers were playing at Leeds Road, but in 1994 John Smith’s Stadium became home of Huddersfield Town. The club play in the English second tier (Championship) and the colour of the their home kit is blue and white (stripes).
Huddersfield Town were founded in 1910 and just three years later they entered the Football League. In 1926 the Terriers won their last domestic trophy, but they did well finishing runners up in the FA Cup 1920. The club’s biggest rivals are Leeds United and it has to be noted that Huddersfield Town have better head-to-head record of the two teams.
Bradford City are considered Huddersfield’s local rivals as well, but there are small rivalries with Barnsley, Halifax Town, Manchester City and Oldham Athletic. The club’s chairman is Dean Hoyle.
