Competition: FA Cup

Market: Huddersfield win

Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport

In an all-Championship battle this weekend, Huddersfield will be hoping to extend on their FA Cup adventure when they host Barnsley on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, managing to make a return to winning ways with a routine display in midweek, Huddersfield have really shocked many across the Championship this season. Last seen picking up a 2-0 victory at home against relegation scrappers Derby, the Terriers also find themselves enjoying a remarkable 11-match unbeaten run across all formats. With their stellar purple patch spanning all the way back to November 27th, Carlos Corberán’s men also laid down a real marker on FA Cup duties last month. Coming from behind and grabbing a 2-1 win at Premier League outfit Burnley, the one-time Leeds coach has also seen his side continue to impress with their displays in the final third. Including an action-packed 4-3 win against Reading, Huddersfield have also collected the scalps of Nottingham Forest and Blackpool on their unbeaten run.

As for the visitors, while Huddersfield might have continued on a remarkable purple patch this season, the same cannot be said for a Barnsley squad in the midst of a Championship nightmare. Although the Tykes might have shocked many as they clinched a play-off spot last season, it appears that the Yorkshire-based outfit are freefalling their way down to League One this time around. Last seen earlier in the week getting hit with a 1-0 loss at home against Cardiff, the Reds have remarkably won just a pair of their 28 second-tier contests this campaign. Sat rock-bottom of the table and without a win against Championship opposition since November 3rd, Barnsley know that they face another stern test here. Suffering a 3-0 drumming against Nottingham Forest in their last contest away from Oakwell, we’re backing a routine home win on Saturday afternoon.
