Huddersfield vs Sheffield Wednesday
England – Championship
Date: Sunday, 15 September 2019
Kick-off at 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: Kirklees Stadium (Huddersfield).
The six-match winless run that Huddersfield are on at the moment has been adding more insult to their injury since their fall from grace, which in itself was hard on their fans. The freshly relegated side are on a five-match losing streak across various competitions, the last of which was a 2-1 defeat against Luton on the road in the league.
Sheffield Wednesday have not been able to ensure a consistent winning run of form in their respective campaign and have picked up just nine points from a maximum eighteen. The away side were taken down by QPR in their last clash at home while their previous outing saw them admit defeat against Preston, both with a 2-1 scoreline.
Although the visitors have been admitting back to back defeats in their respective last two games in a row, the kind of form that Huddersfield are sporting under their belt certainly favors Sheffield Wednesday to come out on top.
Huddersfield vs Sheffield Wednesday Head to head (h2h)
- Only one of their last ten meetings have seen Huddersfield register a win.

- Both teams have found the back of the net no more than thrice in their last seven fixtures.
Huddersfield vs Sheffield Wednesday Prediction
Despite being a part of the top flight for two seasons, Huddersfield have shown no conviction whatsoever on the pitch and have salvaged just one point since being relegated to the Championship.
Furthermore, home advantage has not been working its charm for the Terriers, whose last win over this opponent came way back in 2011. Even though Sheffield have been hit by a decline in form over the past two weeks, it goes without saying that Huddersfield are in no shape to get the better of the visitors who have been able to secure the bragging rights in four of their last seven visits here.
However, considering that three of those seven have ended in a draw, the safest option would be to go for a double chance in this one.
All of the last ten head to head clashes at this venue have been low scoring ones with less than 2.5 goals on the charts. The visitors have found the back of the net just once in their last two outings in the league while their counterparts have also scored just the one from their respective two at home.
So, by all means, expect a goal or two at the most when they lock horns on Sunday.
