Bitesize Prediction: Huddersfield Town vs Derby – 02/02/22

Competition: Championship

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 1/1 @ 888sport

Two sides who find themselves battling it out at opposite ends of the Championship table, Huddersfield will host Derby at the John Smith’s Stadium on Wednesday night.

Starting with the hosts, throwing away the lead late on at home against Stoke last weekend and having to settle for a 1-1, Carlos Corberán’s men should still find the mood in their camp at a high. While the Yorkshire-based outfit might have only just hung onto their Championship status last season, the Terriers suddenly have a play-off spot at the top of their agenda this time around. In the midst of a 10-match unbeaten run, a run that saw them knock Premier League outfit Burnley out of the FA Cup, the one-time Leeds coach will be calling on his side to now find stability on home soil. In fact, along with having to settle for just a single point in each three of their last four matchups at the John Smith’s Stadium, it should be noted that Huddersfield have seen each of their last five home fixtures finish with both teams finding the net.

As for the visitors, mounting another stunning comeback at home against Birmingham over the weekend, Derby have really shown that they will not give up their Championship status without a fight. Suffering a 21-point deduction earlier in the season, Wayne Rooney’s men have gained a host of plaudits. Losing just a pair of their last eight second-tier matchups and snatching a 2-2 draw against the Blues last time out, the former Manchester United icon could be smelling a chance on the road in midweek. Still sat seven points adrift of safety and with time ticking away, Derby have gained a reputation for their lively outcomes at both ends of the pitch. With three of their last four Championship contests away from Pride Park finish with both teams finding the net, we’re backing a similar outcome here.

Bet: Both teams to score at Huddersfield Town vs Derby 1/1 for Wednesday’s Championship showdown @ 888sport
