Huddersfield vs Reading Predictions

Just 1 point from their last 3 matches has seen Huddersfield fall to 19th place but they still hold a 7 point advantage on 3rd from bottom Rotherham. They’ve suffered defeats against Derby and Ipswich in their most recent outings and surprisingly given how good they’d been looking going forward, they failed to score in either match. They have won 4 of their last 7 league matches at the John Smith’s Stadium though and drew 2-2 when Reading visited in the FA Cup in January.

Reading were convincing 5-2 winners in the replay having gone 2 down early on and that result really seems to have acted as a springboard for their season. They’ve looked really lively going forward since then and have only lost 1 of their last 10 games in all competitions. They were though held to a somewhat disappointing 2-2 draw by Fulham at the Madejski at the weekend and are in 11th place, 11 points off the top six.

Anyone betting on this game would be wise to factor in the fact that Reading have a huge FA Cup Quarter Final on Friday against Crystal Palace with a trip to Wembley awaiting the winners. With nothing much to play for in the league they will rest anyone carrying niggles here and even though wholesale changes are unlikely, subconsciously at least they will have one eye on that game and that can only help the Terriers, who have impressed overall under David Wagner and have the firepower to punish any sloppiness from the visitors.

That could just see Huddersfield edge what is likely to be a close game and backing Huddersfield to win 2-1 at 8/1 looks like a good shout given both sides possess are strong goal threat.
