Huddersfield Town News
The Terriers are currently in seventh and knocking at the door of the play-off places. They will be looking to secure as many points as possible over the next few months to secure a spot.
Huddersfield previously played Swansea where the game finished a 1-1 draw. Certainly a frustrating result for the Terriers after scoring an early goal in the 15th minute.
Swansea pushed back hard with the equalizer once again coming late in the 78th minute and giving the Terriers little time to secure a winner.
Huddersfield will be looking to avoid a repeat and take home the three points.
Reading have been struggling this season and are currently 21st in the table, just one place above the dreaded relegation zone.
The Royals’ last couple of games have not gone their way. What was initially a tight but winnable game against Middlesborough ended in disaster with their late lead demolished in the space of 10 minutes?
History has not been kind to Reading in their matchups with the Terriers. Huddersfield secured their promotion to the Premier League in a dramatic penalty shootout with the Royals coming out as the losers a few years back, and more recently, the last time the two teams met resulted in one of the Terriers best games of the season, brushing aside Reading with a confident 4-0 win.
However, there are no guarantees in football, and Huddersfield will have to remain on their toes if they look to make it two for two.
One player to watch for is John Swift, with a total of 8 goals and 9 assists so far this season this player is hungry for goals against just about any side.
I think that this game is going to be an important one for Huddersfield and is one that of course will push them back into the playoff places if they get the win tomorrow.
Reading are certainly not in a good position now and with the disappearance of Andy Carol, this could be a good time for the Terriers to play them.
Carol was not in the starting lineup or on the bench for Readings previous game against Luton and with the transfer rumours of him going to Burnley to replace Chris Wood. We may have already seen the last of him in a Reading shirt.
