Our football match prediction:
Following five consecutive defeats Wigan Athletic did remarkably well to hold in-form Derby County to a goalless draw at the weekend. The Latics, though, need to keep on making progress if they are to secure the Championship survival. Warren Joyce’s troops are sitting in the relegation zone ahead of the visit of Huddersfield Town and we predict that they will leave their hearts on the field in Monday’s football game. You should have in mind, though, that Wigan Athletic are on a five-match losing run at the DW Stadium. Huddersfield Town have been producing thrilling displays in the Championship so far this season and they are sitting in the play-offs berth ahead of Matchday 25. The Terriers are more of a team than Wigan and we are tempted to put our money on the visitors in this one. In their last meeting at the DW Stadium Huddersfield Town emerged triumphant.
Highlighted Player (Yanic Wildschut):
Yanic-Sonny Wildschut is a Dutch football player who was born in Amsterdam on 1 November, 1991. He was part of Ajax academy during his youth career and he made his senior debut for Zwolle in the Jupiler League. After playing 33 matches for Zwolle, the pacey winger joined VVV-Venlo on 29 June, 2011 and in 2013 he moved to Heerenveen. He was soon sent on loan to ADO Den Haag and after making seven appearances for the club, he joined English side Middlesbrough on 1 September, 2014. Wildschut scored his first goal for the Boro in a 3-0 victory over Rotherham on 1 November, 2014. However, he played just 12 games for Middlesbrough in the Championship. On 2 October, 2015 he was sent on loan to Wigan Athletic and three months later he signed a permanent deal with the Latics. You should have in mind that Yanic has 10 caps for Netherlands U21 team. Wildschut is a winger, but he is capable of playing as a centre forward as well.
Highlighted Team (Huddersfield Town):
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 to win the FA Cup title in 1920 as well. 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.
