England – The Championship
Date: Saturday, 8th April 2017
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: City Ground, Nottingham.
Relegation threatened Nottingham takes on 3rd placed Huddersfield trying to get some vital points in the relegation battle.
The host are barely sitting above the danger zone on 20th place with 42 points 2 above Blackburn Rovers. The team hasn’t tasted victory in 5 games ad is desperate to get some good results. Nottingham’s main weakness is their defense. Only rock bottom Rotherham has conceded less goals than them. If it wasn’t for their decent attack to literary outscore some opponents things would have been far worse.
Huddersfield won their last game at home against Norwich in a comfortable fashion. Before this game though the team fell short and recorded 2 losses which put them far behind 2nd placed Brighton. With 9 points gap the team is not likely to be able to reach automatic promotion place and may concentrate on getting the best place for the play-offs.
Nottingham vs Huddersfield: Head to head
Recently Huddersfield became dominant over Nottingham. They recorded 4 wins and a draw in their last 5 meetings and 3 of those wins Huddersfield kept a clean sheet.
The previous 5 games though finished in the same manner but for the opposite side. Nottingham won 4 out of 5 and drew the last one. So that makes the last 10 games between those team equal as they both recorded 4 wins and 2 draws.
Nottingham vs Huddersfield: Prediction
Considering the importance of a home game for struggling for points Nottingham the expectations are for an open game trying to get the points. Nottingham has a lot of firepower up front and scoring at home doesn’t look like much of a problem as they have scored in their last 7 home games. The problem will be keeping it tight at the back. That’s why a both teams to score looks to be the best choice here.
