Huddersfield Town Preview – Can the Terriers make it back-to-back wins?

Carlos Corberan has had a tough first season at the John Smith’s Stadium. However, last weekend’s victory over Nottingham Forest should be enough to keep them in the second tier. Goals from Aaron Rowe and Juninho Bacuna earned the Terriers a somewhat surprise 2-0 win at the City Ground.

Huddersfield are eight points clear of 22nd-place Rotherham United, who still have two games in hand. Overall, Corberan’s team have won 12, lost 19 and drawn 11. They have shipped a staggering 62 goals along the way, with only bottom club Wycombe Wanderers conceding more.

Our betting prediction:

(odds taken 1430 GMT, Tuesday 20 April)

 
Huddersfield have picked up just three league wins in 2021, though two of those have come in their last four home games. At the John Smith’s in recent weeks, Town have taken seven points from a possible 12. Can they stun Barnsley on Wednesday?

Barnsley Preview – Tykes to return to winning ways?

Valerien Ismael’s Barnsley are still in a tremendous position in the Championship table despite last weekend’s setback. The Tykes have not lost many in 2021, but they did fall to a 2-0 defeat to Coventry City at St Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium last Sunday.

Before the loss in Birmingham, Barnsley claimed back-to-back wins over Luton Town and Middlesbrough and took seven points from a possible nine since a 2-1 home reverse to Sheffield Wednesday. The South Yorkshire side are four points above seventh-place Reading in the race for the play-offs.

Ismael will be looking for a response from his players after Sunday’s disappointing showing at St Andrew’s. The loss was their first away defeat since losing to Watford in January, winning six in a row prior.

 

Huddersfield Town vs Barnsley Betting Advice

On Boxing Day, Barnsley beat Huddersfield at Oakwell. Michal Helik was the hero, with his second goal of the afternoon coming in injury time. Five of the previous seven meetings have ended 2-1, with the Tykes winning three of those.

 

Key Facts – Huddersfield Town vs Barnsley Betting Tip

  • Huddersfield have picked up just three league wins in 2021
  • Barnsley had won six away games in a row before Sunday’s defeat
  • The Tykes are in the play-offs with four games to play

 

Going by recent form, this should be an easy away win on paper. However, Barnsley were given something to think about last Sunday, while the Terriers impressed in their 2-0 victory at Nottingham Forest.

As is often the case when these two meet, we fancy Wednesday’s game to be close on the scoreline. Having said that, we are backing Barnsley to secure a narrow victory at the John Smith’s. Another 2-1 Tykes win is nicely priced at 8/1.

Cauley Woodrow has been the main man for Barnsley this term, and you can get the former Fulham man at 7/4 to score anytime in this one.
