For our Stoke vs. Huddersfield prediction, we're going for a 1-0 win for the home side.
Two sides in trouble in the Championship meet this weekend as Stoke City host Huddersfield Town.
Stoke City currently sit 19th in the Championship with nine wins, seven draws and fourteen losses from thirty games this season.
It's been a bitterly disappointing season for The Potters who find themselves deep in a relegation dog fight despite having lofty ambitions entering this season. The whole campaign has been a dysfunctional mess that's seen them deliver too many drab performances and that's now coming back to bite them.
They enter this game amidst a poor run of league form having won one, drawn one and lost three of their last five matches in the Championship, the most recent of which was a 0-0 draw against Hull City.
It wasn't the worst result, but Stoke are in dire need of wins and draws will not do as they find themselves inching ever closer to the drop zone.
Their form at home is almost equally poor having won one, drawn two and lost two of their last five league matches on home soil.
The Potters now sit just five points clear of the relegation zone and this season is going to become progressively more nail biting if their results don't improve. As they come to face a fellow relegation rival nothing less than three points will suffice here.
Huddersfield Town currently sit 23rd in the Championship with seven wins, seven draws and sixteen losses from thirty games this season.
The Terriers have had a fairly dismal time in the Championship this season as they find themselves drastically attempting to climb out of the relegation zone for the first time in months.
They enter this game they enter this game having failed to win any of their last seven games in all competitions while drawing three and losing two of their last five league games.
Most recently, Huddersfield suffered a damning loss at the hands of bottom of the Wigan Athletic as they fell to a 1-0 defeat.
Huddersfield's away record is very poor having drawn two and lost three of their last five games on the road in all competitions.
The Terriers beat Stoke 3-1 when the two sides met in the league back in August and they'll have to hope for a repeat result here as they desperately need to pick up three points here to make amends for losing to Wigan. Unfortunately, though, there seems little reason to back them.
