The English Championship Football will witness an exciting encounter when Huddersfield welcome Reading on Tuesday night.
The Terriers are third in the league table with 61 points, 4 point below the automatic promotion spots occupied by Brighton and Newcastle. Meanwhile, Reading are fourth with a point less than their Tuesday’s opponent.
David Wagner’s team are coming on the back of a morale boosting draw against Premier League giants Manchester City. The result also stretch their unbeaten run in all competitions to 7 matches with the previous 6 being wins.
Moreover, Huddersfield lost only once in their last 16 matches in all competitions. This includes 12 wins and 3 draws.
Reading earned a hard-fought 3-2 win over Brentford in their latest league game. This came on the back of two consecutive draws, but they are unbeaten in last 6 with 4 wins and 2 draws.
Jaap Staam’s problems while playing away from home is an unreliable defense. The Royals conceded 20 goals in 8 away matches since October, averaging 2.5 goals per game. Their recent away form is 3 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses.
Huddersfield vs Reading: Head-to-head
Reading defeated Huddersfield 1-0 when they met for the first leg clash of the season on September last year.
However, Huddersfield are unbeaten in the last three home matches against Reading with 2 wins and a draw. The two wins are in consecutive league matches, while the draw came in the 2016 FA Cup clash. All the three matches have seen over 2.5 goals.
Huddersfield vs Reading: Predictions
The home side are strong favourites to win this one outright. Huddersfield scored in every league game at home but once this season. But they kept only 3 clean sheets during those 15 games.
Reading are in good scoring form, but their defense is all over the places. This could cost them the match here.
Therefore, this can be a high scoring affair with both teams finding the back of the net at some point. And Huddersfield with their excellent form are poised to steal the bragging rights at the Galpharm Stadium on Tuesday night.
