Huddersfield vs Birmingham Prediction
Huddersfield’s fortune ran out prior to the international break after Preston registered a very convincing 3-1 victory over them on the road. The defeat brought the home team’s eight-match unbeaten run to a halt and has left them nineteenth on the ladder, just three points shy of being cast into the relegation zone.
Nevertheless, the hosts will be hoping to bounce back to winning ways this weekend. The squad have been alternating between wins and draws in their last four games on home soil, with their most recent clash here ending in a 2-1 win against Barnsley.
On the other hand, the visitors are going through a rough patch at the moment as well. With back to back defeats in their past two games, Birmingham have been dropping points rapidly. Their last clash at home saw them at the losing end of a 1-0 scorecard to Fulham, prior to which Cardiff got the better of them on the road with a 4-2 scoreline.
It is also worth mentioning that Birmingham have been at their worst in their outings this season. The away side have admitted defeat in six of their last eight trips on the road, and are without a win in their past four in a running.
Be that as it may, the visiting contingent have managed to grab a share of the spoils in their last three visits here. Hence although a win is definitely out of the question, there is a slight possibility that Birmingham might salvage a point in this one.
Hence, the safest punt would have to be a double chance backing Huddersfield.
Furthermore, h2h history at this venue strongly indicates a dearth of goals. All of their last four meetings here have featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts. With Birmingham failing to find even a consolation goal in their two of their previous three outings, rule out any hopes of a high scoring affair taking place this weekend.
