Huddersfield Town form and stats

There's been little loot from Huddersfield Town's travels as they have only collected 10 points from 15 away games in the Championship. Huddersfield Town only have 2 wins to counter their 9 defeats and 4 draws. The loyal fans travelling with their beloved Huddersfield have enjoyed the stadium food more than the matches as the visitors have gone ten consecutive matches without winning on the road. The last time three points were secured away was the Millwall game.

Huddersfield had fun at their own home (Pride Park Stadium) last time out, beating Swansea City 4-1. Duane Holmes (2), Lewis O'Brien and Fraizer Campbell scored. A 1-2 defeat away at Middlesbrough before that.

Huddersfield Town are the outsiders in this one, but not by much. Their performance in similar games (being the away team and moderate outsiders) is two wins, two draws and nine defeats. From a total of 13 matches.

There might be some complaints about the fixture list from the Huddersfield Town manager C. Corberán Vallet as the team has another away game coming up in only four days, this time against Preston North End.

Many goals are not expected from the visiting Huddersfield as they have only managed to score 14 times from 15 away games in the league. Huddersfield's defence is not exactly unbeatable as they have conceded 28 goals from these trips.
