Sheffield Wednesday v Huddersfield Town Preview, Championship, Saturday 23rd November 2013

Sheffield Wednesday head into this game on saturday lunch time having had a very difficult season so far which has seen the club  win just one of their fourteen games played and another defeat against Huddersfield Town would surely see seen manager Dave Jones summoned to the board of directors to collect his P45.

Huddersfield Town have not had the best of starts to their new campaign either and have only managed to pick up four victories from their opening fourteen games played, but they do have 6pt advantage over their hosts and will certainly see this game as a real chance to increase that come saturday afternoon.

Sheffield Wednesday v Huddersfield Town Team News

Sheffield Wednesday Team News:

No reported injuries or suspensions for the hosts so expect manager Dave Jones to start this game with his strongest lineup available in a 4-4-2 formation which will see Matty Fryatt and Connor Wickham leading the attack up front with support from midfield being provided by Olofinjana, McPhail, Antonio and Helan.

Striker Matty Fryatt is the clubs current top goalscorer so far this season with 4.

Huddersfield Town Team News:

The visitors also have no reported injuries or suspensions for this game and manager Mark Robins will also name his strongest squad available for this one which should include James Vaughan who has now returned from a three match ban and Jon Stead leading the attack up front with support in behind coming from Hammill, Dixon, Woods, Hogg and Gobern.

Striker James Vaughan is the clubs current top goalscorer so far this season with 9.

Sheffield Wednesday: D D D W L

Huddersfield Town: L L W L L

Both clubs have managed to secure just the 1 victory from their previous 5 matches played in all competitions, but Sheffield Wednesday do have a slight edge on the recent form stats heading into this game as they have only lost 1 compared to Huddersfield Town having lost 4.

Sheffield Wednesday v Huddersfield Town Match Betting Odds Market.

Sheffield Wednesday are desperate for points if they are to move out of the bottom three of the league table and so this is a must win game for the hosts and having been in better form of late than their visitors it makes sense to see the online bookmakers having them priced up as the clear favourites to win this game at a best price of 11/10 with Paddy Power (£50 Free Bets for New Customers).

The Draw could prove a sensible cover option for this game with Sheffield Wednesday having drawn 4 out of their last 6 games played and does look decent value to be on here at odds of 5/2 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers).

Huddersfield Town are finding games very difficult to win at the moment, but confidence will be high within the squad for this game as the club does have an excellent record against their hosts and at a best price of 3/1 with Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers) I can certainly see a few punters taking the visitors to bounce back to winning ways in this game.

Sheffield Wednesday v Huddersfield Town Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Sheffield Wednesday boss Dave Jones will be fully aware that his job is hanging by a thread at the moment and unless his side win this game on saturday afternoon he could find himself out of work come monday morning next week.

Huddersfield have also struggled with their own form of late and have only managed 2 wins in their last 12 games in all competitions with their last away win coming back on the 17th August 2013 when beating Millwall 1-0 and that kind of form does not exactly inspire anyone thinking of backing the visitors to win this one.

However, there is some hope for those that fancy an away win here as with top goalscorer James Vaughan having served his 3 match ban for being sent off in the 2-1 defeat away to Leicester City the hosts do have the required firepower up front to win this match and up against a side that is also in a poor run of form recently the Huddersfield top goalscorer could prove to be the difference in this one.

The goal stats suggest suggest this game to see at least a few goals scored and markets like Both Teams to Score YES, Over 2.5 Goals and Anytime Goalscorers all look like providing some value here in what should be a very entertaining game for the neutral.
