Our football match prediction:
The John Smith’s Stadium will host Tuesday’s football game between Huddersfield Town and Stoke City. The Terriers did well to hold Southampton to a 1-1 draw at St. Mary’s Stadium in their last league fixture and a win over Stoke City would see them climb to the top half of the table. The Potters, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against WBA at the weekend and they managed to get one. Mark Hughes’ men put an end to their three-game losing run in the national championship and, no doubt, the victory helped the team regain a much-needed confidence. Stoke City aim to escape the danger zone in the Premier League standings, but given Huddersfield’s recent form, the visitors should be happy with one point from the Boxing Day game. In their last meeting in a competitive match back in 2001 (League One) the two teams played out a goalless draw and the history is likely to repeat itself.
