Bitesize Prediction: Huddersfield vs Peterborough – 04/03/22

Competition: Championship

Market: Huddersfield win

Odds: 3/5 @ 888sport

Hoping to try and find a shock route into the top-two this weekend, Huddersfield will welcome Peterborough to the John Smith’s Stadium on Friday night.

Starting with the hosts, last seen picking up what was a routine 2-0 win away at Birmingham, there is no doubt that Huddersfield have shocked almost everyone across the Championship this season. Opening this weekend’s fixtures sat just two points adrift of breaking into the automatic promotion contenders, Carlos Corberán’s men are in the midst of a three-match winning run. Skyrocketing their way up the table and now with their sights firmly set on securing a Premier League return, the one-time Leeds coach should be smelling the chance to lay down another marker here. With their recent purple patch highlighted by a stellar 2-1 victory against runaway leaders Fulham on February 19th, Huddersfield are also enjoying a remarkable 17-match unbeaten run across all formats, a run that stems back to November 27th.

As for the visitors, watching their FA Cup adventure come to a routine end against Premier League heavyweights Manchester City earlier in the week, Peterborough do find themselves enduring a Championship nightmare. Putting in a woeful display last weekend and booed off by their home support after a 3-0 drumming against Hull, the pressure is firmly on Darren Ferguson’s shoulders. With their recent issues highlighted by a 1-0 defeat against fellow strugglers Derby, the Posh have collected just a single point from their last six Championship outings. Opening this weekend’s fixtures sat rock-bottom of the table and eight points adrift of safety, there is no doubt that Friday’s guests face a stern test on their travels. Given the recent gulf in class, we’re backing a home victory for the promotion contenders here.
