Huddersfield Town Preview – Can the Terriers secure a third straight league win?

Carlos Corberan’s Huddersfield Town kicked off their Championship season with just one point from their opening two matches. However, the Terriers have got their act together of late, winning their last two in the league.

Huddersfield picked up a 1-0 home win over Preston North End in their last home league match, with an own goal giving them a precious three points. After that, Levi Samuels Colwill netted a last-gasp winner at Bramall Lane to give Town back-to-back league wins.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1113 GMT, Friday 27 August)

Corberan’s men lost to Premier League Everton in the second round of the EFL Cup in midweek, but Huddersfield will be searching for a third Championship win on the bounce at the weekend. The bookies have the home victory priced at 11/8.

Reading Preview – Royals to crash to fourth league loss?

Veljko Paunovic hit the ground running we he arrived at the Madejski Stadium last year, but Reading have made a poor start to this season. The Royals have lost three of their opening four Championship matches and were knocked out of the EFL Cup by Swansea City at the first hurdle.

After opening up with a 3-2 loss at Stoke City, Reading struck back with a hard-fought 2-1 win against Preston North End in game two. Since then, however, the Berkshire side have lost 3-2 to Bristol City and 2-1 to Coventry City.
