Blackburn Rovers vs Huddersfield Town
English League Championship
Date: Saturday 3rd December, 2016
Kick-off: 15:00 UK
Venue: Ewood Park, Blackburn.
Blackburn Rovers seem to be a completely different team from the one we used to watch at the start of the season in Championship. Owen Coyle has managed to take two wins in a row for the first time in this campaign. The Irish manager has a great opportunity to make it three in a row since his team will be playing struggling Huddersfield Town in the 19th round of the competition.
The Rovers are responsible for probably the greatest upset of the first part of the season as they shockingly managed to take three points from St. James’ Park last Saturday beating the current leaders thanks to Chris Mulgrew who made the difference scoring the only goal in the game 15 minutes from time.
The German manager David Wagner is experiencing the most difficult moments since he took charge of Huddersfield Town. His team is winless in last four league matches, losing as many as three of them. To make it even worse, the Terriers have lost back-to-back matches to the teams which belong to the bottom part of the standings, which certainly shows the huge crisis, especially at the back because conceding five goals to Cardiff City and Wigan Athletic is definitely something to be worried about.
Blackburn Rovers vs Huddersfield Town: Head-to-Head Stats
The teams will extend the rivalry and face each other for the 51st time in history. Rovers were more successful winning 20 matches, but Huddersfield Town won the last encounter beating the rivals with 0 – 2 at the Ewood Park in April this year. We certainly doubt that they will repeat the same scenario considering the poor form they have shown in the recent matches.
Blackburn Rovers vs Huddersfield Town: Prediction
It would be criminal not to take advantage of the huge 6/4 odds set by the bookies on the home win in this match, in spite of the fact that Huddersfield Town have opened the season in a much better way. The visitors’ defensive line was just too bad in the last couple of games, which simply must force us to try with the home win.
