West Bromwich Albion vs Huddersfield Town: Preview and Predictions

West Bromwich Albion vs Huddersfield Town
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 24 February 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: The Hawthorns (West Bromwich).

Huddersfield’s visit will be one of the last trains to catch for West Bromwich Albion who sit at the very foot of the Premier League standings after a run of three consecutive defeats in the competition. The safe zone is seven points away for the Baggies at this stage, and such position is currently held just by the Terriers, meaning that a win here would help the hosts grab themselves a massive survival lifeline ahead of the final part of the season.

Nonetheless, the current form does not suggest such an outcome given that the hosts will come into this off the back of four straight defeats across competitions. Alan Pardew has clearly not managed to turn a corner with the Baggies who just can’t seem to find the winning formula at the back where they’ve been very easy to break down of late.

WBA have shipped as many as 11 goals in last four losses in all competitions. The good news for Pardew is that his men have generally been better in front of the home crowd where they’ve lost just one of last four league matches.

Huddersfield Town were on a dreadful streak of their own (five subsequent loses) before terminating it in some style, by netting four goals in a demolishing home win over AFC Bournemouth in the previous round. Nonetheless, David Wagner’s men have failed to back up this win seven days later when they easily lost the FA Cup tie to Manchester United 0-2 at The John Smith’s Stadium.

West Bromwich Albion vs Huddersfield Town: Head-to-head

It’s been 17 years since these two teams have last locked horns in a league affair before their clash in early-November last year.

The Terriers have picked up a 1-0 victory back then.

Interestingly, none of last six head to head encounters between these two sides saw three or more goals,

West Bromwich Albion vs Huddersfield Town: Prediction

The Terriers have lost three on the bounce without scoring a single goal in the process on their most recent travels in Premier League.

Given that this is the last chance for the Baggies to catch up with the rest of the league, we have to try with the home win, priced at 1.95 odds.

Since we expect a very tight and nervous clash in general, and since none of last six H2H matches between these two teams has produced three or more goals, we will alternatively take the Under 2.5 goals FT at the odds of 1.50.
