            Huddersfield vs Swansea Prediction, Tips & Stats

            As the Championship season winds to a close Huddersfield will be aiming to gain three vital points to lift them out of the relegation zone when they take on Swansea City at The John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

            The home side currently find themselves in 22nd place in the Championship table after gaining 44 points from their 43 league games this season. In what is a very congested bottom half of the table, there are just three points separating 23rd and 19th so every point will be crucial for the Terriers’ survival.

            Coming into this fixture, Huddersfield have shown mixed form, winning one, drawing two and losing two of their last five league games. Last weekend, the Terriers dropped into the relegation zone after conceding a 101st minute penalty against Bristol City.

            Josh Koroma fired Huddersfield in front in the 81st minute after a Jack Rudoni shot was deflected into his path. But deep into added time Terriers substitute Ollie Turton was judged to have handled a Cameron Pring cross from the right and Nahki Wells sent a powerful spot-kick beyond the reach of goalkeeper Lee Nicholls.

            Swansea City have all but confirmed their Championship safety as they are currently nine points above the drop zone with three games left in the season. The Swans have gained 53 points from their 43 league games this season.

            Luke Williams’ side come into this weekend on the back of successive league victories against Rotherham and Stoke. Swansea did not concede in either of these matches and we expect them to be tough to break down once more this weekend.

            The fixture of Huddersfield vs Swansea has a long history, with the two sides having first met in 1952. In total, the two sides have faced each other on 63 occasions, with Huddersfield having the better head to head record, winning 26 meetings compared with 18 which have been won by Swansea.

            Swansea gained an unlikely point when these two sides met each other earlier on in the campaign. The Swans had looked to be heading for defeat after Ben Cabango's unfortunate own goal had the Terriers in the lead from the third minute. But substitute Charlie Patino found the net in the third of six added minutes.

            It is the home side who come into the match as favourites and they are currently priced @ 23/20, whilst an away win for Swansea is priced 9/4 and a draw is @ 5/2.

            We are backing Huddersfield to win and under 2.5 goals in the game because both of these sides have been involved in tight cagey affairs in recent weeks. Only one of Swansea's last seven games has finished with over 2.5 goals, whilst Huddersfield have not scored more than one goal in their last nine outings.

            Furthermore, all five of the last meetings between the two sides have been tight games, with there not being over two goals in any of these meetings.

            Huddersfield will be without Radinio Balker and Jonathathan Hogg who are unlikely to play for the Terriers again this season. However, Jack Rudoni and Tom Lees will make a return to the starting XI after recovering from injury.

            Luke Williams has a number of injury concerns ahead of this weekend’s clash. Joe Allen and Kyle Naughton are not expected to be back in time for this weekend, whilst Josh Ginnelly and Przemyslaw Placheta are not expected to make a return to the pitch this season.
