Huddersfield Town vs Stoke City

, KO: 19:45 Jan 28, 2022, John Smith’s Stadium
Stoke City

Huddersfield Town return to English Championship action on Friday night as they welcome struggling Stoke City to the John Smith’s Stadium. The hosts are still alive in the playoff race and home matches will be pivotal in their push for promotion.

The task for Huddersfield Town in the second half of the season will be to fend off the chasing pack and hold on to the final playoff spot. They are currently sixth on the table, just one point above fast rising Nottingham Forest.

Things appear to be on course as Huddersfield Town are unbeaten in their last eight Championship matches. Carlos Corberan’s men have claimed four wins in that run, including a thrilling.4-3 victory at Reading in their previous fixture, with Danny Ward netting a hat-trick.

Home form will be pivotal in the final push for the playoffs and Huddersfield Town have suffered just one defeat in their last eight matches at the John Smith’s Stadium. Among their results in that run is a 3-2 victory over second placed Blackburn Rovers while they also picked up a 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion.

Things are a bit different for Stoke City who have claimed just one win from their last six Championship matches and have slipped into the bottom half of the table.

Despite sitting in the bottom half of the standings, Stoke City are just six points off the playoff places and a win on Friday could put them back in the mix. However, they have shown little signs of turning their fortunes around with four defeats in their last five Championship matches.

Stoke City have surprisingly impressed on their recent travels with just two defeats in their last six away matches. However, one of those defeats came on Tuesday as Michael O’Neill’s men were beaten 1-0 by Coventry City.

Huddersfield Town have the upper hand among the bookies and are priced at 8/5 by MansionBet to claim the win. A victory for Stoke City is valued at 39/19 by SBK while William Hill is offering odds of 23/10 for a draw.
