Our prediction for this Championship match:
Bramall Lane will host Saturday’s football game between Sheffield United and Huddersfield Town, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the remainder of the season. Sheffield United are eyeing automatic promotion, while Huddersfield Town are desperate to secure the Championship survival. The Blades defender Jack Robinson has joined the likes of Rhian Brewster, Tommy Doyle, Norrington-Davies, Daniel Jebbison, Sander Berge, and Jack O’Connell in the recovery room.
The good news for the hosts is that Senegal international Iliman Ndiaye is back from international duty. The relegation strugglers, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom with only 19 points on their account, and seeing that Sheffield United have turned their Bramall Lane into a real fortress, we are tempted to put our money on Paul Heckingbottom’s troops. As for the away team, all Oliver Turton, Yuta Nakayama, and Patrick Jones are out of contention through injuries.
Highlighted Player (Adam Davies):
Adam Davis is a German-born footballer who plays for Championship side Barnsley as a goalkeeper. The 185-cm-tall shoot-stopper began his youth career at Everton and in 2012 he signed a contract with Sheffield Wednesday. However, he never managed to make a first-team appearance for the Owls. Due to the lack of first team action, he decided to leave the club in 2014.
Adam Davies, who was born in Rinteln, Germany on 17 July, 1992, moved to Barnsley on 13 June, 2014. He made his debut for the club against Crawley Town in the opening match of the 2014/2015 campaign and he quickly established himself as a first-choice goalkeeper. His contract with Barnsley expires on 30 June, 2017, but the deal could be extended for a further year.
Adam Davies conceded 82 goals, while keeping 26 clean sheets in 74 appearances for Barnsley in all competitions. During his spell at Everton U23 he managed to keep eight clean sheets in 22 appearances for the club.
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.
