Conclusion Huddersfield Town - Brighton
Both teams are on a poor run of form and while Brighton seems a bit better defensively away from home, Huddersfield have been leaky at home and perhaps this is what they may need addressed to better their run. While Brighton have done slightly better, this clash rarely favors the away team so a draw here looks like the likeliest result but with both teams scoring.
