Our prediction for this Championship match:
Buoyed by a splendid 5-0 win over Luton Town, Reading will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they face Huddersfield at their Madejski Stadium. The Royals are stuck in the middle of the standings, meaning that they have little to play for in the season finale. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Yakou Meite, who scored four goals in the triumph over the Hatters.
The Terriers, on the other hand, are eyeing their third consecutive clean sheet in the Championship. Huddersfield Town, on the other hand, are only two points clear of the relegation zone. The Terriers are eager to move away from the bottom three, but beating Reading at Madejsi Stadium is easier said than done. Given the Royals’ display in the 5-0 win over Luton, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. Huddersfield midfielder Juninho Bacuna remains on the sidelines through suspension.

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.
