Newcastle vs Huddersfield
English Premier League

Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: St. James’ Park (Newcastle).
A new four-loss thread practically sent Huddersfield Town to the second tier of English football.
They just don’t look competitive in the elite class and are at the very foot of the Premier League ladder with just 11 points from 26 games. The safe zone is as many as 14 points away from them and we can say only a miracle can save them from getting relegated.
The Terriers did have a very tough schedule in the last month. They lost to the likes of Manchester City, Everton, Chelsea and Arsenal.
Nonetheless, the team generally struggled against all opponents throughout the entire season. They have a dreadful away record of 1 win, 3 draws and 8 losses in 12 games on the road.
Huddersfield Town lost six and drew one of past seven matches away from The John Smith Stadium and they failed to find the back of the net at all in any of last four outings in the process.
Newcastle vs Huddersfield: Head-to-head
The recent head to head record also fancies Newcastle United here.
The Magpies won three of past four meetings with Huddersfield Town.
Each of past three H2H affairs ended with the same 1-0 scoreline.
Newcastle vs Huddersfield: Prediction
The hosts see this as a perfect opportunity to clinch salvation points. They are just one point above the red zone and desperately need a victory against the struggling rock-bottomed opposition here. The Magpies were in good touch lately, particularly in games at St. James’ Park where they notched two straight wins over Cardiff City and Manchester City.
The Magpies are well worth backing at 1.83 because of everything written above. Braver punters can also shoot for the 1-0 correct score as this scoreline happened in each of last three head to head affairs. We will alternatively back the hosts to keep a clean sheet knowing Huddersfield Town failed to find the back of the net in last four away games in all competitions.
Newcastle vs Huddersfield: Bet Tips
