Huddersfield vs Stoke City Match preview
Huddersfield marked their third win in the past five league fixtures when they defeated Blackburn in a 2-1 scoreline at home in their previous match.
Also, the Terriers will be on the confidence of winning the last two home matches in the campaign.
Meanwhile, Stoke has taken a hit against Fulham on the road in their previous league encounter with a 1-0 score on the board. The Potters have managed only two wins in their last five campaign fixtures.
Apart from that, Stoke will be visiting after losing all the previous four trips on the road in the league.
Huddersfield vs Stoke City Prediction
Even though both teams are at the bottom part of the table in the league this season, Huddersfield has slightly margined Stoke with a 7 point lead. Also, the host has a better form in the campaign considering their overall unbeaten games.
Besides that, the Terriers have been performing well at home with a two-game winning run lately. On the other hand, Stoke City has been struggling at both home and away in the campaign. They are the worst home team in the league currently.
Even in away games, the Potters have lost the last four clashes in a row. Along with that, the visitor has recorded only two wins in their 12 away fixtures until now. As such, based on their overall performance and the home ground advantage, Huddersfield has the better chance of winning the game than Stoke.
However, since both teams are on the bottom part of the league table, we cannot avoid the chance of a draw. Hence, it is safer to go with a double chance in the clash which will probably have under 2.5 goals in ninety minutes.
