Reason For Leeds vs Huddersfield Predictions

  • Huddersfield have scored in 94% of their away trips this season.
  • Leeds have conceded 9 goals across their last 7 at home, keeping just 2 clean sheets.
  • Huddersfield have scored in 8 of their 9 away defeats.
  • The hosts have won by a single goal in 70% of their home wins.

Leeds on the March

It seems like all the talk of Leeds slumping and falling out of the promotion race has gone. That’s hardly a surprise after seeing them win four games on the bounce to move five points clear in second. However, the hosts dropped points late on at crucial stages last season, leaving them to spend another year in the second tier.

Now Leeds are hoping to finally gain promotion, with this winning run looking promising. They play a struggling Huddersfield side at home this weekend, but will it be another straightforward victory for the hosts?

Tricky Terriers

Leeds have been made clear favourites with the bookies for this one, with the club expected to add to one of the league’s strongest home records. The Terriers have won consecutive games to give themselves a boost, which has taken them four points clear of the drop zone. They put a poor Charlton side to the sword and took advantage of Bristol City, scoring six times across those clashes.

While Leeds are looking strong at the back, this is a huge test for their defence. Huddersfield have scored in 94% of their away trips, including each of their last five on the road. While Leeds have kept back to back home clean sheets, they had conceded in each of their five home clashes before that, leaking nine goals. That could provide an opening for the visitors.

Leeds to do Enough

Leeds should be able to edge this game, given that they are facing a Huddersfield side who have been beaten nine times on the road this term. The Terriers have scored in eight of those defeats, including losses at West Brom and Fulham. So far this term, the Terriers have met the top three on four occasions, losing all four.

Huddersfield have scored in each of their trips to the top 10 this season, losing five of those seven. Meanwhile, against the bottom 10 in the Championship Leeds have won 14 of 17 matches. We expect the hosts todo enough to shade a victory here, although they’re likely to concede to this high-scoring Huddersfield side. A Leeds win and both teams to score is our pick here.

Huddersfield have lost 2-1 on three occasions on the road so far. Meanwhile, 70% of Leeds’ home wins have come by a single goal. We see them just narrowly edging out the Terriers, so a 2-1 home victory is our correct score tip.
