Huddersfield vs Birmingham
England League Championship
Date: Saturday, 5th November 2016,
Kick-Off: 15:00 UK
Venue: John Smith’s Stadium, Huddersfield.
Three losses from their last four games have certainly rocked the boat at Huddersfield as their Championship campaign has seen them slip to 3rd place. Still the club have a 4 point safety gap in the playoff places but they have slipped 3 points behind 2nd place Brighton and an automatic promotion.
At the John Smith’s Stadium the Terriers have earned the majority of their points with 18 gained from their 28. From 7 games they have won 6 and lost just once when they went down 1-0 to Sheffield Wednesday.
Birmingham is in 7th place and chasing that play-off position marker. A win here would see the Brummies come within a point of their hosts so this match feels like a real six pointer.
Form wise the visitors don’t have the consistency looking good one week and poor the next. Their away form has been poor where they have gone the last four matches without a win including the last two being losses.
Huddersfield vs Birmingham: Head to Head Stats
Birmingham are a real bogey team to Huddersfield at this ground where the hosts have not won this fixture since 2008. Since then the clubs have played here four times where Birmingham has won three and there has been a draw. The last 4 matches have seen fewer than 3 goals. Can we expect a change?
Huddersfield vs Birmingham: Prediction
Based on the facts above and form this should be a very close game that probably won’t open up until the second half, that’s why we should look into the draw at half time. Elias Kachunga continues to score at home for Huddersfield and should be looked into again for excellent value.
