Huddersfield Town pays a visit to the Vitality Stadium to face AFC Bournemouth FC this Saturday in the EFL Championship. 3 pm Kick off.
There are no two ways about it, this is going to be an extremely tough game for the Terriers.
After their previous game against Birmingham – A disappointing 0-0 draw that they really should have won – and a recent string of positive results, Huddersfield are currently sitting at a respectful 6th in the table, certainly a nice position to be in.
However, the table is tight, from 6th place to 17th place there is only a 6 point gap, something which could be closed in only a couple of games, so it is key that Huddersfield keeps up their positive run of form.
The Cherries are currently top of the table, 6 points clear of second place, a fantastic position to be in.
Their domination means Bournemouth have yet to be beaten, with a total of 9 wins and 4 draws so far. Not a team which anyone is going to be happy about playing.
The Cherries previously played Bristol city where they managed a comfortable 2-0 win.
They are a smooth team and passing to each other seems effortless, Bournemouth likes to use their attacking triangles to try and get the ball in a dangerous position, something that Huddersfield need to be very aware of.
The first player to watch for Bournemouth is Dominic Solanke, this player has bagged a total of 8 goals so far this season, three of these coming in his past 5 games. A dangerous player on the ball and someone you do not want to be giving any room.
Another player to watch is ex Huddersfield Town player, Philip Billing. This man has been another outstanding player for Bournemouth this season, not only a player creating dangerous chances from the midfield area, but he has also managed to put 5 away in the back of the net. Certainly, a player to watch out for.
We know that this is going to be a tough game for Huddersfield with Bournemouth being on such a good run currently, but this is the Championship, and anything can happen.
The Terries need to go in with a strong game plan and execute it just as well if they are to have any chance of a positive result.
But in the end, the Cherries may simply prove to be too strong, therefore I predict:
