Market: Huddersfield win
Odds: 29/20 @ 888sport
Looking to pile even more pressure on Derby in midweek, what appears to be a resurging Huddersfield will host the Rams at the John Smith’s Stadium on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Huddersfield might have struggled to find their feet under new boss Carlos Corberán at the start of the 2020/2021 campaign, the mood around West Yorkshire could be on the rise. Suddenly skyrocketing up the Championship table and the former Leeds coach quick to praise his new squad, the Terriers picked up what was a very impressive 2-1 win away at play-off chasers Swansea over the weekend and they will be confident of causing another upset at the John Smith’s Stadium. Now managing to pick up seven points over just their last three second-tier appearances on the spin, it should also be noted that Huddersfield landed a 1-0 win over Nottingham Forest last time out on home soil. Seeing Derby’s arrival as a golden opportunity, Corberán’s men are well worth keeping an eye out for on Tuesday at eye-catching odds.
As for the visitors, while Huddersfield might be looking to cash in on their season-best run, Derby put in what was another worrying display over the weekend and the pressure is really on Phillip Cocu’s shoulders. With many around Pride Park feeling that the former PSV bosses time is up, the Rams were hit with a 1-0 defeat against Watford on Friday night and have endured a woeful start to the New Year. With it appearing that Wayne Rooney’s late free-kick away at Carrow Road was just a minor bounce, Derby appear a million miles off mounting any kind of play-off charge and have remarkably managed to pick up just three points from their opening five Championship appearances after returning from the international break. Showing a string of issues and the mood in their camp undoubtedly at a season-low, we’re backing a home victory on Tuesday night.
