Huddersfield Town vs Blackpool prediction, preview, team news & more

Huddersfield Town host Blackpool at John Smith Stadium on Sunday afternoon in another round of EFL Championship football.

The Terriers struggled to come to life under new boss Danny Schofield. They were beaten 2-0 by Bristol City in their last game and will be disgusted to have nothing as they had a few chances to get on the scoresheet themselves.

Huddersfield Town sit 23rd in the table with just four points from six games. They can leave the drop zone with maximum points this weekend and will look to do so.

Blackpool have had mixed results this season. They also lost their last league outing, falling to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Blackburn Rovers as they struggled to reach the clinical heights they have shown in recent weeks.

The visitors have collected eight points from seven games and sit 15th in the Championship table. They will be looking to shake off their last results and get back to winning ways on Sunday.

Huddersfield Town vs Blackpool Prediction

The hosts are on a three-game winless streak and have won just one of their seven games in all competitions this season. All four of their points this season have come at home and they will be hoping to maximize their home advantage on Sunday.

The Seasiders’ latest result ended a three-game unbeaten streak and they will be aiming to bounce back this weekend. They are undefeated in their last two road games and could score a point here.
