Huddersfield vs Preston
England – The Championship
Date: Friday, 14th April 2017
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: John Smith’s Stadium.
Preston travels to Huddersfield to try and keep their minimal chances for promotion play-offs against one of the best teams in the league.
Huddersfield are sitting on 3rd place 10 points behind the automatic promotion places. Still the team has a game in hand and with a good run of form in the rest of the games they may have some chances. They are not currently showing such a form though. With 3 losses in the last 4 games the team looks more likely to fall further behind than to close the gap. At home Huddersfield have been one of the consistent teams. They got 14 wins in 20 home games which puts them among he best home teams in the league.
Preston fans are still keeping slight hopes to see their team in the promotion play-offs. Still 8 points gap will probably be too much for them. Their away form is also not contributing to their dream. The team puts a decent performances at home but one the road the team looks unconvincing. The team has not won a single trip for 8 games in a row losing 3 and drawing the other 5.
