            Huddersfield vs. Leicester Prediction, Tips & Stats

            Leicester City continue life in the Championship this weekend as they face Huddersfield Town at The John Smith's Stadium.

            Huddersfield Town currently sit 22nd in the EFL Championship having lost their first game of the season last weekend.

            The Terriers were tasked with an away fixture at newly promoted Plymouth Argyle and Neil Warnock's side comprehensively failed that assignment as they fell to a 3-1 defeat.

            Following that loss Huddersfield succumbed to a second straight defeat as they were beaten 2-3 at home by Middlesbrough in the EFL Cup on Tuesday night to cap off what can only be regarded as a poor start to the campaign.

            Huddersfield struggled immensely last season but the late appointment of Neil Warnock led to their eventual saviour. However, Warnock has not been backed in the transfer window with The Terriers barely reinforcing their squad over the summer so many are braced for the Yorkshire side to endure another tough season in the Championship.

            Huddersfield are pretty short on quality but they have a manager who specialises in getting the best out of a limited toolset so they'll have to hope Warnock is willing to stick it out this season and grind out a solid campaign.

            They will desperately want to avoid falling to three straight losses to start the season but they've been handed a very tough first home league fixture here as they face promotion favourites Leicester City.

            Leicester City currently sit 7th in the EFL Championship having won their first game of the season.

            Leicester were given a difficult start to life back in the Championship as they were drawn against Coventry City, last season's losing play-off finalists who've invested heavily over the summer, on the opening day of the season.

            Leicester were wholly unconvincing and were second best to Coventry for the vast majority of the game and fell behind two minutes into the second half.

            Coventry arguably should have scored three or four goals but their impotence in front of goal came back to bite them as Kieran Dewsbury-Hall scored a ten minute brace late on in the game to steal three points for a relieved Leicester side.

            Leicester's reality is that in terms of quality they can still blow most of the rest of the league out of the water so The Foxes winning games after not performing convincingly is not a surprising outcome.

            However, winning in this manner is not sustainable and Leicester fans will want to see their side playing to their potential to feel more comfortable about their chances of mounting a prolonged promotion push.

            Leicester followed up Sunday's victory with a 2-0 win over Burton Albion in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night, a result that little can be taken from given the quality of the opponent.

            It feels as though there are still a lot of questions surrounding Leicester's chances this season but given the quality in their squad one would be hard-pressed not to regard them as one of the promotion favourites.

            Given Huddersfield's struggles so far this season this is a game Leicester should expect themselves to win.

            For our Huddersfield vs. Leicester prediction, we're going for a 2-1 win for the away side.

            Leicester Team News

            As for The Foxes, Conor Coady is still unavailable through injury while Ricardo Pereira and James Justin will battle it out to start on the right side of the defence.

            Leicester's starting XI will look similar to the one that started against Coventry with Stephy Mavididi and Kasey McAteer manning both wings either side of Kelechi Iheanacho.
