Huddersfield Town vs Reading
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 2 January 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Kirklees Stadium.
The Royals are going through a struggling stretch at the moment, and have dropped a lot of points in the process. They also have conceded a lot of goals in the past several fixtures, and have been on an even more worrying run on the road in the last two months.
Meanwhile, the Terriers have been consistent lately, and in the period, their only losses have come against some of the best teams in the competition.
Especially at home, they have been on a superb run for the past few months, and they have scored in plenty in these games.
To further pile on, they also have a great h2h record against this opponent over the past several years, and particularly so at this venue.
By the looks of things, expect Huddersfield to dominate proceedings at the Kirklees Stadium.
Huddersfield vs Reading: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Carlos Corberan’s men had kept clean sheets in three of the former four overall games.
- In the past four years, they have lost just once against this opponent.
- The guests have recorded a total of just one Championship win at this stadium, and just two since 2002.
- Only once have the hosts failed to find the back of the net at this venue since 2015.
Huddersfield vs Reading: Prediction
The Terriers recorded a 2-1 win at home the last match-day, against Blackburn. In the meantime, Veljko Paunovic’s men registered a 2-1 win at home against Luton.
Going on, Corberan’s men are on a five-fixture winning run at home, and have scored two or more goals in every single one of these appearances. They have also lost just thrice at this stadium since July, and the last they had failed to score here was back in early September.
On the other hand, their opposite number had lost three of the preceding five match-ups, and they were winless in nine of their former thirteen overall fixtures. On the road, they have won just once since October, and the sole win had come against the 19th placed QPR.
Going on, the Terriers also have an impressive h2h record against this rival over the years, and particularly so at this venue.
Taking these observations into account, expect Huddersfield to have the upper hand this Saturday at the Kirklees Stadium.
