Our football match prediction:
Saturday’s football match at the John Smith’s Stadium pits together Huddersfield Town and Burnley. Huddersfield are determined to secure the Premier League survival and they have been producing fine performances in the English top flight this term. The Terriers are on a three-game unbeaten run in the national championship, but they will have a big fish to fry against Burnley in their last game of the year. The Clarets proved their worth in a 2-2 draw with Manchester United at the weekend, but it has to be noted that they were on the verge of beating the Red Devils on Boxing Day. Sean Dyche’s men have been impressive in the Premier League this term and they totally deserve to sit in the top half of the standings ahead of Matchday 21. However, beating Huddersfield Town on the road is easier said than done and we predict the two teams are going to share the spoils at the John Smith’s Stadium.
Highlighted Player (Jason Davidson):
Jason Davidson is an Australian international who plays for Huddersfield Town. The pacey left back started his youth career at Seiritsu Gakuen and in 2009 he joined Pacos de Ferreira. Davidson made his senior debut at Hume City in 2009, but he left the club later that year. He returned to Pacos de Ferreira in September, 2009, but he made no more than 5 appearances for the club in the 2009/2010 Primeira Liga campaign. Jason Davidson was voted 2009 Victorian Premier League – U 21 player of the Year and during that period Stuttgart, Sporting CP and Ankaragucu scouts spotted him. However, after ending his loan spell with Sporting Covilha, he joined Heracles Amelo in January, 2012. The Australian player, who was born on 29 June 1991, scored 2 goals in 51 league appearances for the Ligue 1 outfit and in August 2014 he signed a contract with Premier League side West Bromwich Albion. Nonetheless, he played no more than two league games for the Baggies as the club announced his release in May 2015. Huddersfield Town chiefs decided to sign a three-year deal with Donaldson on 26 June 2015 and it has to be noted that he scored one goal in 27 appearences for the club in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign.
Highlighted Team (Burnley):
Burnley were one of the founding members of the Football League back in 1888. The Clarets did remarkably well to win the FA Cup trophy back in 1914 and the club owners have been trying to bring glory days back to Turf Moor ever since. Burnley defeated Liverpool in the 1913/1914 FA Cup final and, no doubt, this is regarded as the greatest achievement in the club’s history. The Clarets finished the 2015/2016 Championship campaign in top position in the standings and, as a result, they will participate in the English Premier League in the 2016/2017 season. Burnley play their home games at Turf Moor and the capacity of the stadium is 21,401. The Clarets have won two Community Shield trophies so far, in 1960 and 1973, but they have yet to clinch the Premier League title. Claret is the dominant colour of the team’s home shirts.
