Preview: Burnley vs. Huddersfield Town - Championship Prediction, Team News, Lineups
Burnley will be hosting Huddersfield Town in the Championship on Saturday afternoon as they look to move a step closer to promotion. The visitors, on the other hand, sit level on points with two other clubs in the relegation zone. Our preview includes team analysis, betting trends, public betting data, and a prediction with a pick for the spread.
Over the past three games, Burnley have not been at their best due to a number of fitness and illness issues in the squad. Despite this, the Clarets have still managed to remain unbeaten with five points to their name against Watford, Luton Town, and Millwall, all of which are vying for the playoffs. Burnley remains on a 13-match unbeaten streak in the second tier, and they are still favorites for the title and promotion, even if they doubled the two defeats that they have suffered this season.
Huddersfield Town have been boosted by the return of Neil Warnock, who led the Terriers to a 2-1 victory over Birmingham City in his first match in charge. The result ended an eight-match winless streak in all competitions. However, Huddersfield remains four points adrift of safety with some in-form teams next on their schedule. The Yorkshire outfit remains outsiders to remain in contention for 21st spot, yet Warnock may relish being in charge of a club who are underdogs to prevail on a weekly basis.
