Huddersfield vs Sheffield Wednesday
England League Championship
Date: Sunday, 16th October 2016,
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK
Venue: John Smith’s Stadium.
The sky is the limit for Huddersfield who leads the Championship on 25 points. They are currently two clear of chasing Norwich City. It’s not been all plain sailing for the Terriers though who have lost 2 games this season both of which has come in their last five matches.
Noticeably those defeats were both away. At home the club has a 100% record with 5 games won from five matches. Four of those matches have ended in the same score line of 2-1. German coach David Wagner struggled somewhat in his first season with the club but this second season is proving to be bearing all the fruits of his labour as he works relentlessly to see the club gain promotion to the Premier League.
The Terrier’s defender Michael Hefele has promised that his side will enter the November break for internationals top of the Championship.
Sheffield Wednesday are in 9th place and with 17 points already gained are just three points from the play-off positions. They will be aiming to inflict Huddersfield first loss at home. Recent form has been inconsistent where the club has lost two matches from their past four.
Away from home they have won just one game from five, though that win was their last away game where they overcame Blackburn Rovers 1-0.
Huddersfield vs Sheffield Wednesday: Head-to-Head Stats
The head to head reads like bad news for Huddersfield because the home side have not won any fixture home or away in six attempts going back to 2013. Since then Sheffield have come here and won twice. And the last time that happened was a 1-0 victory in April this year. What could be telling is that the last four fixtures between the clubs have ended 0-0 at half time.
Huddersfield vs Sheffield Wednesday: Prediction
No doubt that Huddersfield have the better equipped team for this game. Even though they have a perfect home record, the wins have only been achieved by the margin of one goal. They haven’t shown a huge dominance in their matches. So forget the straight win and look into different markets.
