      The writing looked to be on the wall for Huddersfield back at the end of October. They started a new month having just lost 3-0 against Watford, extending their winless start to the season to ten matches and leaving them floundering in the bottom 3 of the table.

      However, a 1-0 win over the torrid Fulham breathed new life into the side that defied the odds to avoid relegation last season. They followed that with a draw against West Ham and a 2-0 win away to Wolves last weekend. This resurgence has been enough to lift them out of the Premier League drop zone and into 15th position.

      Now, The Terriers face another side who are relative newcomers to the top flight, although their opponents have fared significantly better than them so far this season.

      Brighton sit up in a respectable 12th position in the Premier League with a 5 point cushion over Huddersfield and a 7 point gap before they reach the bottom 3. This is largely thanks to a number of fantastic performances at the Amex Stadium, but away from home they have struggled for over a year now.

      The Seagulls have won just 1 of their 7 away games in the Premier League this season, and 5 of them have ended in defeat. They have failed to score on 3 occasions and conceded 12 goals at the other end, and their most recent failure was a disappointing 2-1 loss against relegation candidates Cardiff.

      Travelling has been a problem for Brighton since they were promoted last season. They have won just 3 of their 26 Premier League away games since their promotion, drawing 6 times and losing the remaining 17 matches. They had the worst away record in the top flight last season and they’re not looking like they’ve overcome this problem.

      Huddersfield have a real chance to continue their recent resurgence here. They are facing a Brighton side who are on a 3 match winless run and have a terrible away record, and considering The Terriers have lost just 1 of their last 10 home matches against Brighton we think backing a home win is the best option here, along with a 1-0 correct score predictions.
