Huddersfield vs Fulham
England – Championship
Date: Friday, 16 August 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45
Venue: Kirklees Stadium (Huddersfield).
The two freshly relegated sides from the Premier League got off to a dismal start in the second division with a defeat in their respective matchups.
Following the opening day loss to Derby at home, Huddersfield were held to a disappointing 1-1 draw in their last clash with QPR on the road. The hosts managed no more than six shots at goals in that game and were able to work the goalkeeper four times in the process as well.
Fulham, on the other hand, bounced back from a 1-0 loss to Barnsley on the road to clinch the win against Blackburn on home soil.
With their first three points in the bag, the Cottagers will the more optimistic of the two sides this week as they make the trip to the Kirklees Stadium to take on fellow Premier League outcasts Huddersfield.

Huddersfield vs Fulham Prediction
The home team are struggling to get back to their feet, and have achieved not more than a draw and a loss from their last two games. The squad bowed out the Premier League last season with the worst home record at hand, and have not shown any signs of returning to winning ways in any of their matchups so far.
The visitors secured the first win of their campaign in their last clash at home and will be coming into the tie this week on the back of that positive outcome. Moreover, home advantage has worked in favor of Huddersfield just once in their last six matchups with Fulham here.
Given that Fulham have also scored five goals in their last three trips to this venue while conceding no more than three, there is certainly reason to back Scott Parker’s men to come out on top by the end of the ninety minutes.
Four of their previous six ties here have been high scoring clashes, with both teams contributing to the scorecards. Considering that the two sides also found the back of the net in their fixtures last week, a clean sheet for either side is definitely out of the question.
