Huddersfield Town vs Barnsley Betting Tips – EFL Championship, 26th October 15.00pm

We may only be in October, but Saturday’s EFL Championship fixture between Huddersfield Town and Barnsley at the John Smith’s Stadium is a relegation six-pointer. The Terriers have made a vast improvement since new boss Danny Cowley arrived in West Yorkshire, and they head into this crucial home match unbeaten in five. Can Huddersfield extend their undefeated run to six games with a positive result against the Tykes at the weekend?

Huddersfield Town News and Form – Will the Terriers stretch unbeaten run?

Huddersfield Town made a woeful start to their season, failing to win any of their opening ten league and cup matches, with eight of those ending in defeat. Danny Cowley lost his opening two games in charge, but Town have gone five fixtures without losing since then.

Huddersfield have taken nine points from their last five, winning two and drawing three. Over the past month, Huddersfield have won twice, beating Stoke City and Hull City. Meanwhile, they have picked up draws against Millwall, Blackburn Rovers and Middlesbrough.

The Terriers were held by Boro in an uneventful goalless draw at the John Smith’s in midweek. But Can Cowley’s boys secure all three points in a huge six-pointer against Barnsley at the weekend?

Barnsley News and Form – Can the Tykes pick up first away win?

Barnsley are one of five teams without an away win in the Championship so far. The Tykes, who sacked Daniel Stendel recently, have drawn two and lost four of six away league fixtures up until now.

However, the Yorkshire outfit picked up an excellent draw at The Hawthorns last Tuesday. Two Cauley Woodrow goals put Adam Murray’s men 2-0 up at the home of the league leaders after just 24 minutes. However, Slaven Bilic’s West Bromwich Albion fought back to claim a 2-2 draw.

Barnsley, last season’s EFL League One runners-up, have not won a game in any competition since beating Fulham 1-0 at Oakwell on the opening weekend of the Championship season. Since then, the Tykes have taken a mere five points from 12 games. Adam Murray’s Barnsley are rock bottom on eight points, but victory on Saturday will see them leapfrog Huddersfield in the second tier table.

Huddersfield Town vs Barnsley Predictions

Huddersfield Town win: The Terriers have really turned a corner since the Cowley brothers arrived. It’s been a tough couple of years for the supporters, but there’s certainly light at the end of the tunnel. I fancy Huddersfield to continue their improved form with a narrow win over Barnsley on Saturday. The home victory is priced 10/11.

Cowley has definitely shored up the defence since switching to Huddersfield from Lincoln City. During their five-game unbeaten run, Town have shipped just three goals, keeping three clean sheets along the way. With this one expected to a close affair, one goal could be enough to win it. With that in mind, check out bet365’s tasty odds of 13/2 for Huddersfield to get a 1-0 victory on home turf this weekend.
