Huddersfield Town will be facing up against Birmingham FC tonight at the John Smiths Stadium; 19:45 KO.
Tonight will be another great chance for the Terriers to get 3 points on the board and push them into the top 6 in the Championship standings.
Huddersfield previously played Hull FC, where they managed to get a brilliant 2-0 win. It was a great performance from Huddersfield, and the way the team played is something that I would like to see again tonight as it was strong overall.
The game kicked off early for the Terriers, with a goal coming straight away in the 9th minute from Lees. This put Huddersfield in a nice position; they could play the game to how they wanted it to be played with a goal ahead.
The game was then very average with not a massive push coming from Huddersfield. With a goal up, there was no reason for them to throw all the men forward and leave themselves open for a counterattack.
Then we saw some excellent build-up play from Huddersfield, which led to their second goal of the game, confirming the three points for the Terriers.
Overall, just a brilliant performance for Huddersfield, and this was a game where the 3 points were deserved and earned.
The Blues are currently 19th in the table so far this season and not in the best form. In their past six games, Birmingham has only managed to pull 1 point away from these games – certainly not a good position to be in at all for them.
One thing that I am going to note though is their previous game against West Brom, even though they lost this game, it still wasn’t a bad performance from the Blues – the game finished 1-0. Birmingham took some breaking down for West Brom to get the late goal. So, it’s clear that Birmingham can hold off these stronger teams.
One player to watch for Birmingham is Scott Hogan, the forward has got a total of 3 goals this season, but he has been quiet since the bad run. I think he will be eager to get back on the scoresheet as soon as possible.
I think tonight will be a great chance for Huddersfield to get three more points under their belt and take the win tonight. With Huddersfield being on good form at the moment and Birmingham not being on good form, it is an excellent chance for Huddersfield to capitalize on this and push for the win tonight.
