Huddersfield - Stoke
Huddersfield - position 6, points 44, GD 37:33; 12-8-8
Stoke - position 11, points 38, GD 32:29; 11-5-11
Both teams have scored in Huddersfield’s last four home matches. The Terriers have only lost three home league fixtures. After a pretty poor start to the campaign, Huddersfield have improved dramatically of late and have not suffered a defeat in any competition since a 2-1 reverse to Middlesbrough at the end of November. They are still conceding far too many goals for Carlos Corberán’s liking though, keeping just two clean sheets in their last eleven games, with both teams scoring in seven of those fixtures. The Terriers have been hard to beat on home soil though, losing only to teams currently in the top eight and picking up seven wins from 13 outings.
Stoke have scored in nine of their last 11 away fixtures. Every time you think Stoke have turned a corner, they throw in another poor performance and result, such as Tuesday’s 1-0 loss at Coventry.Michael O’Neill’s side have actually kept four clean sheets in their last six away games, but they will find it hard to stop a free-scoring Huddersfield side, while three of those shut-outs were against teams in the bottom half. Both teams have netted in half of their last six fixtures, as they have in half of their 14 matches on their travels.
