Huddersfield vs Fulham Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Huddersfield and Fulham are set to serve up a low scoring contest in their EFL Championship clash at the John Smith’s Stadium. Both teams have not been at their best at the start of the season and often struggle in attack. They are tipped to produce under 2.5 goals at odds of 1.91 while a draw is also predicted at 3.25.

Huddersfield Town AFC Form & Team News 


Huddersfield are coming off a 1-1 draw at Queens Park Rangers in their previous Championship fixture. They took the lead four minutes after the break through Karlan Grant but conceded the equaliser seven minutes from time. 

It was the first point in the campaign for the Terriers who were beaten in their opening match. Jan Siewert's men are valued at 2.88 for a win on Friday but have seen under 2.5 goals in three of their last four matches.

Huddersfield have scored just two goals this season with both strikes coming from the boots of Karlan Grant. He is set to start in attack on Friday with support from Adama Diakhaby and Alex Pritchard, both of whom have struggled for goals lately.

Fulham FC Form & Team News 


Fulham triumphed 2-0 at home against Blackburn last time out in the Championship. Tom Cairney opened the scoring in the first half while Aleksandar Mitrovic added the second nine minutes from time.

The Cottagers have not been particularly convincing lately having claimed just one win in their last four matches across all competitions. Scott Parker’s men are priced at 2.45 to triumph at the John Smith’s Stadium but their recent struggles in attack mean Friday’s clash is likely to be a low scoring affair.

Aleksandar Mitrovic should continue as the lone man in attack after netting his first goal of the season last time out. He is likely to be joined by Ivan Cavaleiro and Anthony Knockaert in a front three that hasn’t particularly impressed so far.

Huddersfield vs Fulham Head to Head 


Fulham have an 11-3 advantage with six draws from 20 previous matches against Huddersfield. Four of the last six meetings have produced under 2.5 goals with both teams claiming one win each in the last two fixtures.

Huddersfield vs Fulham Match Up


Huddersfield appear to be heavily dependent on Karlan Grant with the striker scoring the team’s two goals this season. He is likely to struggle on his own against the Fulham defence with attacking partners Adama Diakhaby and Alex Pritchard both looking off colour.

As always Aleksandar Mitrovic will be the one to watch for Fulham, although the striker had scored just once in his last three matches. Anthony Knockaert and Ivan Cavaleiro are also struggling at the moment, meaning the visitors could be in for a difficult time at the John Smith’s Stadium.
