Huddersfield Town v Hull City - Sky Bet Championship


Huddersfield Town will host Preston North End at the John Smith’s Stadium on Tuesday (October 18) night in the Championship.

The hosts have endured a sluggish start to their season, sitting in the drop zone. Their poor form prompted the dismissal of manager Danny Schofield. However, his successor Mark Fotheringham has struggled to steady the ship, recently losing 2-1 to newly promoted Rotherham United.

Huddersfield are 23rd in the standings, with just 11 points from 13 games. They are just one point above rock-bottom and will look to widen that gap on Tuesday. Preston, meanwhile, have had mixed results this season but have hit a rough patch of late. They were beaten 2-0 by Stoke City in their last game. They fell to two second-half goals after failing to register a shot on target all game.

The visitors, meanwhile, have picked up 19 points from 15 games and sit 13th in the standings. They will look to shake off their latest results and get their campaign back on track.

Huddersfield Town vs Preston North End Prediction

Huddersfield have won just one of their last four matches and two of their last 10. They have, however, won their last two home games and will look to continue that streak this week.

Preston are on a run of back-to-back defeats and have won just two of their last eight games. They have, however, lost just one away league game this season and could pick up a point here.
