Tip Huddersfield Town - Coventry City
Prediction published on December 8, 2021 at 6:12 AM - Modified on December 8, 2021 at 7:15 AM
Huddersfield Town play host to Coventry City on matchday 23 in the Championship with both teams vying for the playoff positions. The home side currently sit on 29 points, putting them 11th in the table and four points behind seventh place Coventry. Both teams have been in poor form recently and will be hoping to turn their fortunes around as we approach the halfway mark of the English second division season. Huddersfield only have one win in their last five matches taking their record to eight wins, five draws and eight loses on the season. Despite losing their last home match 2-1 to Middlesborough, the Terriers should be encouraged by their strong performances this season at the Kirklees Stadium. Huddersfield have earned 19 of their 29 points playing in front of their own supporters.
Much like Huddersfield, Coventry have been a completely different team when not playing on home soil. The Sky Blues have had some real ‘Jekyll and Hyde’ type performances this season such as losing 5-0 away to Luton Town then following that up three days later with a 4-1 win at home against Fulham. They have conceded 25 goals so far this campaign, 15 of which have come on the road while only managing to find the back of the net eight times compared to 20 at home. In total Mark Robins’ team have two wins, four draws and four losses as their away record so far.

Conclusion Huddersfield Town - Coventry City
This looks to be a tight match with the pre-match 1X2 odds reflecting that. Something to note is that both of these teams tend to score a majority of their goals in the second half so that could be an additional angle to look at. We will back Huddersfield Town on the double chance as they should be the more likely team to edge this one but a draw could likely be on the cards here.
