Huddersfield Town slipped down to second place in the table on Saturday as they lost by a lone goal to reading. Now they hope to get back to winning ways as they host Rotherham United on Tuesday.
Huddersfield were out of favour last Saturday as Norwich City took the top spot in the Championship table, R. Beerens’ 41st minute strike was enough to pull Huddersfield down to 2nd, while Reading got to 4th place in the league table.
Last weekend’s defeat was Huddersfield’s second Championship defeat this season and their third defeat in all competitions. They have lost to Shrewsbury Town and Brighton & Hove before the weekends defeat at Reading. They will be prepared to get back to winning as they hope to reclaim the top spot should Norwich slip.
Rotherham United have a hard task at hand as they travel to St. John Smith’s Stadium, they have been on a poor form since the start of the season and are in 23rd place in the table.
Rotherham’s poor form continued on Saturday as they lost at home to Cardiff City, extending their winless streak to 5 games. I. Brown put Rotherham in front after 60 minutes, but R. Lambert’s Brace in 70th and 79th minute dealt a blow to Rotherham.
