Both teams to score at Huddersfield Town vs Wigan Athletic 5/6 for Saturday’s Championship contest

Competition: Championship

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 5/6 @ Bet 365

In a real battle between two sides looking to extend their Championship status, Huddersfield will welcome a resurging Wigan to the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, while Huddersfield may have suffered a 2-0 defeat against league leaders Leeds on the road last weekend, Danny Cowley’s men have once again found a route out of the drop zone. Undoubtedly still boosted by back-to-back 4-0 and 2-1 wins over Charlton and Bristol City, there is no doubt that the former Lincoln boss will be excited by his side’s continued performances on home soil. Collecting nine possible points out of an available 12 at the John Smith’s Stadium, Huddersfield will be calling on leading marksman Karlan Grant to lead their charge this weekend. With three strikes in as many Championship appearances, the 22-year-old has recorded 16 goals this season and has also found the net in back-to-back matchups on home soil.

As for the visitors, while Wigan may have been disappointed to have only collected a point against fellow scrappers Luton last weekend, few in the Championship would have expected the Royals’ stellar resurge. Including a stunning 1-0 win away at title hopefuls West Brom a fortnight ago, fans around the DW have seen their side win three of their last four appearances and enjoying an unbeaten run that stems back to the 8th of February. Finding a route out of the drop zone and the mood in their camp at a season-high, Paul Cook will be most excited by his side’s continued performances on the road. Also shocking many across England with a 1-0 win at Elland Road last month, Wigan have won three of their last four matchups on their travels and have lost just a sole Championship fixture away from the DW since opening the New Year.
