Huddersfield host Norwich at the John Smith’s Stadium this Saturday in game week four of the Championship. The hosts are eager to get a win as The Terriers are without a win so far this season whereas Norwich look to get the three points to keep them in the race for the automatic promotion spots.
Huddersfield currently sit 21st in the Championship with just one point to their name. In the three games so far The Terriers have one draw and two losses. Of the four teams stuck on one point Huddersfield is only second to Cardiff due to the differences in their goal difference.
Huddersfield had a tough start to their season with their trip to newly promoted Plymouth Argyle. Michal Helik was on the scoresheet for The Terriers with his goal in added time of the first half, but it wasn’t enough as Morgan Whittaker, Bali Mumba and Ryan Hardie all scored for Plymouth Argyle who grabbed all three points in a 3 - 1 win. Huddersfield's first home game of the season was a tough match against Leicester. The Foxes had 70% of the possession and grabbed the 1 - 0 win through Stephy Mavididi’s goal.
The Terriers’ most recent outing was a trip to Middlesbrough where Huddersfield earned their first point of the season. Huddersfield took the lead through an own goal from Dael Fry but Hayden Hackney levelled it for Middlesbrough as the game finished 1 - 1.
Norwich, on the other hand, sit third in the Championship. The Canaries are currently unbeaten in the league with two wins and one draw in three games, leaving Norwich on seven points. Due to the nine goals Norwich have scored, they sit above Birmingham despite being on the same goal difference.
The Canaries opened their season at home against Hull City. The visitors drew first blood with a goal from Liam Delap, but Norwich struck back in the added time of both halves. Jonathan Rowe scored in the third minute of added time in the first half to equalise and Adam Idah grabbed the win with his goal to make it 2 - 1 in the 96th minute. The clash against Southampton was a high-scoring affair as the game finished 4 - 4 with goals from Josh Sargent, Gabriel Sara, Rowe and Christian Fassnacht for Norwich.
A visit from Millwall was Norwich’s last outing. Goals from Rowe, Sargent, and Ashley Barnes gave The Canaries the 3 - 1 win.
Huddersfield and Norwich have met 47 times professionally in their histories. The two teams aren’t separated by much with draws being the most common outcome in the fixture, with points being shared 18 times. The Terriers have beaten Norwich on 13 occasions whereas The Canaries have beaten Huddersfield 16 times.
However, in the last five games between the two, Norwich have won three times, with Huddersfield winning once and the last clash ending in a draw. Since Huddersfield’s last win in the tie was back in 2017, it’s likely that all three points will go Norwich’s way this weekend.
