Coventry vs Huddersfield
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 16 December 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: St. Andrew’s Stadium.
Along with Brentford, and Derby, the Sky Blues remain the only team to stay unbeaten in the last five match-days in the league. As of now they are ten points away from a playoff spot, and if they do not start going after a position in the top-most tier, time would fast run out for them.
They also are at home, and have made good use of their fixtures at the St. Andrew’s Stadium so far. However, they are a newly-promoted team, and thus lack a little bit of experience in the second run of football in the English hierarchy.
Meanwhile, the Terriers have not made a big impact in the Championship so far this season, and almost all of their good performances have come against some of the worst teams in the competition.
They have also been on an unimpressive run on the road for the past several match-days, and have conceded in plenty in the most recent such fixtures.
Likely, expect Coventry to have the edge this Wednesday.
Coventry vs Huddersfield: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest encounter between the two had taken place in 2009, and it was a friendly. Then, spoils were shared with a 0-0 scorecard.
- Before that, these two had locked horns in 1977. In fact, in the total 15 clashes dating back from 77, Carlos Corberan’s men had remained unbeaten in 10.
- They were also on a winning run against this opponent from 1919 to 1965, barring a single draw.
- Six of the previous seven meetings failed to have goals from both teams.
Coventry vs Huddersfield: Prediction
Mark Robins’s men recorded a 1-2 win on the road the last match-day, against Wycombe. In the meantime, Corberan’s men lost 5-0 on the road against Bournemouth.
Going on, the Sky Blues are on a seven-game unbeaten run at the moment, and they have lost just twice at home since November of 2019. And one of these defeats had come against the second-placed Bournemouth.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in eight of their preceding twelve match-ups, and they remained so in 15 of their preceding 18 road games. Note that they had also conceded three or more goals in three of their former four road fixtures.
As such, expect Coventry to be the better team on the pitch this Wednesday. Be that as it may, the Terriers have scored two or more goals in four of their past seven overall matches, and their opposite number are an inexperienced team newly promoted from the League One.
For the reasons, a clean sheet seems a bit harsh to expect from the hosts.
