It is another six pointer in the relegation battle when Newcastle United welcome fellow promoted Huddersfield Town for Saturday’s Premier League game.

The Magpies played their last Premier League game on 17th March at home and registered a thumping 3-0 win over Southampton. This is their second home win on the bounce with clean sheet and stretched their unbeaten home run to 5 games. Yet, they are only 3 points above safety in the crowded lower half of the league table.

Meantime, Huddersfield are coming on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Crystal Palace, a result that stretched their win-less run to three games. They are also close to Newcastle in the league table staying above danger zone on a 3 point cushion.

The Terriers have only managed a handful of wins this season and their away record is one of the worst in the league. They lost 10 of their 15 away games and failed to score in 11 of those.

Newcastle vs Huddersfield: Head-to-head

  • Overall 4 meetings between the two sides and they share 2 wins each.
  • This season’s first leg clash resulted in a narrow 1-0 win for the Terriers.
  • The previous three meetings saw both teams scoring and over 2.5 goals.
  • Last season, Huddersfield surprised Newcastle by beating them 2-1 at the St. James Park.

Newcastle vs Huddersfield: Prediction

Points are important for both teams here as they look to steer as far as possible from the relegation zone. However, Newcastle will be keen to make home advantage count as this is one of their four remaining games at St. James Park.

The Terriers have been extremely poor on the road and so far managed a humble 3 wins out of their 15 games so far, losing in 10. Moreover, they failed to score in 11 of those and conceded a whopping 30 goals in the process.

Newcastle must win this one with ease, especially when they are unbeaten in the last 6 in front of their home crowd.
