Tip Huddersfield Town - Fulham
Huddersfield Town had a couple of miserable seasons in the Premier League. They struggled for goals and finished bottom of the table last season. They are back in the Championship and not finding life much easier this season. Huddersfield began their league season with a 2-1 defeat by Derby County. If their fans thought it would be easier in the second-tier of English football, they were soon proved wrong. County went 1-0 up in the 22nd minute with Tom Lawrence scoring. Huddersfield were still in shock when he scored again a minute later. They got a goal back six minutes from time but couldn't get an equalizer. Next up was a trip to QPR and it looked as if they might get their first win of the season. They were 1-0 up but the home side equalized through an 83rd minute penalty to leave Huddersfield 19th in the table, a point above the relegation zone. Huddersfield have only won one of their last 15 home matches.
Fulham lost at Huddersfield last season as their first season back in the Premier League also ended in relegation. They made a miserable start to life back in the Championship losing their opening game 1-0 at Barnsley. That was a loss to a team who were in League One last season. Barnsley won thanks to a 14th minute goal by Luke Thomas. Fulham got into winning ways in their second league game. They beat Blackburn Rovers 2-0 with a goal in each half of the game. Aleksandar Mitrovic got the second goal and his continued presence at Craven Cottage is vital to their promotion hopes. Away from home, 11 of their last 13 away games have been lost. A bet on under 2.5 goals in this game looks the best bet to go for.
Key points Huddersfield Town - Fulham

Conclusion Huddersfield Town - Fulham
Both of these clubs are still finding their way in the Championship. Huddersfield only have one point from their two games and Fulham three from theirs. At least Fulham have won a league game this season but it was on home soil. A high-scoring game isn't likely and the bet is on under 2.5 goals being scored.
