Match preview

A Huddersfield Town outfit propping up the standings are set to act as hosts this weekend, in a Championship showdown with Watford at the John Smith’s Stadium.

The Terriers, of course, have endured a nightmare campaign to date.

Since being pipped to promotion at the last earlier this year, the Yorkshire-based outfit have failed to recover in any way, shape or form.

All told, Mark Fotheringham’s men have clinched just five wins from 21 attempts, leaving them cut adrift at the foot of the table in England’s 2nd tier.

After showcasing signs of life in the lead up to the World Cup break courtesy of four points from an available six, Huddersfield, in turn, no doubt headed into last weekend’s return to play with sights set firmly on a surge up the Championship table.

It therefore came as a major blow when, upon the final whistle sounding in a trip to Bramall Lane, the Terriers were forced to face up to yet another defeat.

A solitary goal on the part of Billy Sharp proved enough to guide Sheffield United to a 1-0 triumph, and a deserved one at that.

The road ahead for Mark Fotheringham and co, though, is unlikely to prove all that much more forgiving.

This comes with Huddersfield’s next test, on Saturday, coming in the form of a showdown with another outfit pushing for promotion, in Watford.

The Hornets have endured something of a hit-and-miss season to date, a dynamic perfectly encapsulated by their most recent result, last weekend.

In the club’s return to action post-international break, Slaven Bilic’s troops were held to a goalless stalemate by relegation candidates Hull City at Vicarage Road.

This result meant that Watford have now clinched all three points in just one of their last four attempts.

And yet, owing to the widespread inconsistency in the Championship thus far this term, the Hertfordshire-based outfit remain 5th in the standings, just two points off third.

We at 101, in turn, are backing Saturday’s visitors to the John Smith’s Stadium to ultimately emerge on the right side of the result, come the full-time whistle in west Yorkshire.
