Our prediction for this Championship match:
Stoke play host to Huddersfield at their Bet365 Stadium on day 32 of the 2022/2023 Championship campaign. The Potters are not enjoying a season to remember, with the team sitting in the danger zone, but they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. All Josh Tymon, Connor Taylor, and Sam Clucas are out of contention with injuries, while Axel Tuanzebe and Ben Pearson are rated doubtful for Wednesday’s encounter.
Meanwhile, the visitors aim to escape the relegation zone, and they are likely to leave their hearts on the field. Huddersfield, though, have been struggling on the travels this term, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Stoke’s party at Bet365 Stadium. As for the away team, Danny Ward is a major doubt, while all Ben Jackson, Duane Holmes, Kieran Phillips, Lee Nicholls, Faustino Anjorin, Yuta Nakayama, and Patrick Jones remain on the sidelines with injuries.

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.
