Huddersfield vs Burnley betting tips: Premier League match preview & predictions

Huddersfield vs Burnley prediction: Huddersfield 0-1 Burnley

Burnley will be looking to record only their second away win of the season when they visit rock-bottom Huddersfield Town.

The Terriers have the worst home record in the league, scoring just four goals in their 10 matches at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Burnley come into the match on the back of a clean sheet win over West Ham but have the second worst away record this season.

Huddersfield vs Burnley: Who will win?

Despite their terrible home record, Huddersfield are the bookies’ favourites at 23/20, while Burnley have been generously priced at 3/1. The draw can be backed at 11/5.

Goals have been few and far between for both sides this season. Under 2.5 goals in the match looks a safe bet at 8/15.

Expected to start in a two-man attack, Burnley’s Ashley Barnes is 7/1 to open the scoring and 11/4 to score anytime.

Huddersfield vs Burnley Premier League match preview

Huddersfield host Burnley at the John Smith’s Stadium on Wednesday night.

Burnley ended a run of three straight defeats with a 2-0 win at home to West Ham on Sunday. Chris Wood and Dwight McNeil scored the goals for Sean Dyche’s side. 19-year-old McNeil became Burnley’s youngest ever goalscorer in the competition.

Huddersfield lost 1-0 away at Fulham on Saturday, conceding the only goal of the game in second-half stoppage time. The Terriers looked set to pick up a crucial away point after Jonas Lossl saved a penalty from Aboubakar Kamara.

Huddersfield have lost their last seven league matches and have never lost eight in a row in their history.

A win for Burnley could lift them out of the relegation zone, depending on results elsewhere. Three points for Huddersfield would not be enough to lift them off the bottom of the log.

The match ended 1-1 when the sides met in the reverse fixture at Turf Moor in October. Sam Vokes’ opener was cancelled out in the second half by Christopher Schindler

Huddersfield and Burnley have met 3 times in the competition, with all three matches ending in draws.

Burnley team news vs Huddersfield

Tom Heaton made his Premier League comeback last time out, with Joe Hart dropping to the bench. Heaton is expected to keep his place between the sticks after keeping a clean sheet.

Burnley are expected to go with two up front. Chris Wood could play alongside Ashley Barnes, with Matej Vydra and Sam Vokes providing alternative options.

Stephen Ward is back in training following a knee injury but Wednesday’s game may come too soon for him to start.

Steven Defour also had a knee problem and faces a late fitness test. The midfielder is rated by Dyche as “touch and go”.

Ashley Westwood is more likely to partner Jack Cork in central midfield.

McNeil is likely to start again ahead with Robbie Brady still doubtful. Aaron Lennon is a long-term absentee.
