Norwich City vs Huddersfield Town Match Prediction

By Charlotte Louise Bushell

Norwich City v Huddersfield Town Match Prediction

Just five points separate the side in third and the side in tenth in the Championship in a tight battle for the play-off slots. Two of these sides do battle on Friday evening (19:45) in front of the Sky Sports cameras as ninth-placed Norwich entertain fourth-placed Huddersfield. Both of these sides come into the gap on the back of victories with the Canaries seeing off Aston Villa 1-0 at Carrow Road thanks to a Nelson Oliveria strike and The Terriers saw off Burton 1-0 with Nahki Wells getting the only goal of the game.

Norwich City Preview

Predicting what Norwich will show up right now is impossible and if Alex Neil had any hair he would no doubt be tearing it out. The Canaries were top at one stage this season and then plummeted down the table on the back of five straight defeats. When it looked like they had turned the corner after beating Brentford 5-0 they put in a poor showing at Barnsley and lost 2-1. Then in midweek they put in a spirited battling display to defeat Aston Villa. It means they now rank second in the division for home form and just 14th for away form. Luckily for Norwich, this game is at Carrow Road where they are doing their best work.

Huddersfield Town Preview

It is now seven points from the last three games for Huddersfield, and they seem to have turned the corner after a bad run before that that saw them win just one of eight games. The Terriers have won at Newcastle and Leeds this season, so they will not be afraid of a trip to Carrow Road. The Canaries have the 19th best ranked defence in the division, and the Yorkshire side will be confident they can get among the goals.

 

Norwich City Team News

Cameron Jerome missed the game in midweek with a back injury, and it remains to be seen if he will feature on Friday. Matt Jarvis featured for the under 23 side in midweek though he is unlikely to come into the matchday squad just yet.

 

Huddersfield Town Team News

A trio of injuries are affecting the Yorkshire side with Joe Lolley (foot) and Sean Scannell (leg) expected back in January while Mark Hudson (hamstring) is expected to return soon.

 

Betting Tips and Prediction

This should be a fun game to watch, but the match odds look about right with two teams of a similar ability and the weighting to favour the home side.

Instead take a couple of each-way chances on the first goalscorer market. Jonny Howson, who is vital to the way the Canaries tick, was handed a creative role just off the striker against Villa and showed in the Premier League last season that he has an eye for a goal.

Nahki Wells is a confident player, and with two in his last two, his morale should be high. Bennett and Bassong are often exposed to pace, and the Huddersfield man has this in his locker so add him to your goalscoring portfolio.
