Preston vs Huddersfield Prediction
Preston had their previous home match with Blackburn which ended in a 3-2 score on the board. However, they did come from the back in the second half after conceding two in the previous half including an own goal. With 56% ball possession and 6 corner kicks in the game, Preston dominated at home.
Moreover, they did rain 12 shots against 8 by the opponents. Also, the Lilywhites had more composure as 8 of their shots hit the target. Besides that, they showcased well defending by not allowing space for the opposition strikers as Blackburn could hit the target only one in the 8 attempts.
Meanwhile, Huddersfield had their previous outing against Brentford. It was a slow game from both ends and ended in a 0-1 win for the Terriers. Despite the win, the guest didn’t have the ball in hand as they had only 37% possession in the game.
Also, they could hit only two of the four shots on target while the foes hit 3 of their 10 shots. Moreover, the Terriers did rain more attacks as shown in the four corner kicks awarded in the ninety minutes. As such, they didn’t show much dominance in their last away trip.
Besides that, the hosting squad is the best home team in the league so far. They are unbeaten at the Championship home matches in this season. Significantly, they have scored 22 of the 28 championship goals at home. On the other hand, Huddersfield has lost 3 of the 7 away fixtures in the campaign.
Henceforth, the host has more chance of winning the game in ninety minutes. Also, we can expect both teams to score goals in the game in the context of their h2h stats.
