Huddersfield Town have won just one of their last five Championship outings, but they’ve had a chance to regroup over the international break and the television cameras will be in attendance as they try to turn the corner in an intriguing Yorkshire showdown.
Bookies fancy Chris Powell’s side to return to winning ways, Skybet installing them as 13/10 favourites for the points at the John Smith’s Stadium, where Sheffield Wednesday are 12/5 outsiders via BetVictor.
Of course a run of six stalemates in eight for the visitors will push plenty of punters towards an inconclusive contest at 12/5 (Stan James) and BetVictor’s 12/1 about a goalless affair is also set to prove popular, alongside bet365’s 9/2 for the two teams to head in at the end of each half with the scores level.
Some Town fans will be understandably cautious in light of their team’s recent results and for them. their side are 4/11 with Ladbrokes to avoid defeat or are available at 4/7 in Stan James’s ‘Draw No Bet’ market.
On their own patch however, Powell’s troops are unbeaten in five and that kind of form lends appeal to bet365’s 11/4 about a home success by a one-goal margin.
That covers both a 1-0 triumph (8/1, BetVictor) and a 2-1 victory for Powell’s men (8/1, William Hill) while Winner.com make Town 9/2 to shade it following an inconclusive first half.
Elsewhere, betway go 17/20 about the hosts breaking the deadlock, an opener that’s 15/2 via bet365 to be scored by Harry Bunn.
Staying with goals, Paddy Power price the clash at 10/11 to generate three or more and it’s 4/6 at Stan James for both teams to find the net.
