Huddersfield Town are set to strengthen their promotion playoff hopes as they host Barnsley in a Friday night English Championship fixture. The Terriers have been in good form lately and should be too strong for the bottom club.

Huddersfield Town earned a 2-0 victory at Middlesbrough in their previous Championship fixture. They were comfortable throughout the encounter with goals in each half from Naby Sarr and Jordan Rhodes sealing the win.

That result means Huddersfield Town are now unbeaten in their last four Championship matches, claiming three wins in that run. Sitting 12 points clear of Millwall just outside the top six, Carlos Corberan’s men appear well on course for a comfortable playoff finish.

Huddersfield Town’s recent good form has been driven by a sturdy defence that has kept three clean sheets in their last four Championship matches.

Barnsley appear to be on the brink of Championship relegation having spent much of the campaign rooted to the foot of the table. They are currently 11 points from safety with four matches left to play and defeat on Friday could confirm their relegation to the third tier.

The Tykes have done little to boost their slim survival hopes and are winless in their last five Championship matches. They travel to Huddersfield off the back of a 2-0 home defeat to Peterborough United in their previous Championship fixture.

Among the reasons for Barnsley’s struggles is a poor record on their travels having claimed just one win away from home all season. They have lost three of their last four matches on the road, a run that includes a 4-1 defeat at Millwall.

How the bookies view it

The bookies have installed Huddersfield Town as overwhelming favourites with a home win priced at 4/7 by bet365. An unlikely victory for Barnsley is valued at 24/5 by William Hill while a draw is set at odds of 16/5 by SBK.

Recent head to head

Huddersfield Town and Barnsley have claimed three wins each and one draw from their previous seven matches. The Terriers are unbeaten in the two meetings this season, playing out a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture in December before claiming a 1-0 victory in the FA Cup in February.

Players to watch

Huddersfield Town have been almost impenetrable at the back in recent weeks, conceding just one goal in their last four matches. Naby Sarr, Tom Lees and Oliver Turton have formed a solid defensive unit and can lead the Terriers to another clean sheet at 23/20 with Coral.

At the other end of the pitch, Huddersfield Town have spread their goals across the team but Danny Ward remains their top scorer with 13 goals. The striker is priced at 18/11 by SBK to find the net on Friday.

Anything else catch the eye?

Given Huddersfield Town’s fine defensive record and with Barnsley not particularly convincing in attack, BTTS NO could be on the cards at 9/11 with SBK. A win to nil for the Terriers can also be considered at 31/20 with BetVictor.

Huddersfield Town are expected to earn a comfortable victory on Friday and can be backed in the -1 handicap market at 8/5 with BoyleSports.
