Huddersfield Town vs Wolverhampton Wanderers
England – League Championship
Date: Saturday, 27 August 2016,
Kick-Off: 15:00 UK
Venue: The John Smith’s Stadium, Huddersfield.
Huddersfield Town struggled all the way in the previous season and escaped relegation by finishing 19th in the table. This term they have made a strong start to the 2016/17 Championship campaign and are unbeaten with 4 matches into the new season. The 2-1 win against Newcastle United and a 1-1 draw against Aston Villa are high points in the results so far. They will be kicking off the Saturday’s fixture against Wolverhampton Wanderers as league leaders with 10 points from four matches.
The Wolves can’t complain how their season has gone so far. They are third in the standings at the moment after earning two wins and two draws from their opening four matches. Wolves were 14th in the table last season and the former Italian goalkeeper Walter Zenga will be keen to build on the strong start in his first season as a head-coach of an English side.

Huddersfield vs Wolves: Prediction
There were no draws in the last 10 meetings between Huddersfield and Wolves. So it is almost certain that this match will see a winner at the final whistle. Both sides have made strong start to their season and will go into the match unbeaten. But Huddersfield’s domination on Wolves in recent time put them as strong favourites to come out with a win. The home team have won in 8 of the last 10 meetings between these two and backing them to win again is my recommended bet.
The scoring form of both teams also make a strong case for both teams to find the back of the net at least once. As seen in five of the last six games between these two, this match could see at least 3 goals.
