Huddersfield vs Coventry City Predictions

There are vital points on the line when Coventry host Huddersfield on Friday.

Coventry are coming off a hugely dramatic FA Cup victory against Wolves in which they equalised and scored the winner in the 97th and 100th minute.

They may have a huge FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United on the horizon, but they are still involved in the battle for the play-offs so each league game is important, too.

Huddersfield, meanwhile, are fighting for their lives in the relegation zone.

Current Form

Huddersfield’s Current Form

Huddersfield really could have done with a win against bottom-of-the-table Rotherham in their last game, but it was a tight affair that ended 0-0. Before that, they suffered consecutive defeats to Cardiff and West Brom.

Coventry’s current form

Prior to that FA Cup win, Coventry’s form was up and down, as although they destroyed Rotherham 5-0 and defeated Watford 2-1 away from home, they have also suffered recent defeats to Preston and West Brom.

Team News

Huddersfield will be without striker Sorba Thomas who was sent off against Rotherham. Yuta Nakayama and Ollie Turton are sidelined.

Joel Latibeaudiere, Kasey Palmer and Haji Wright were all away on international duties this week, but should all be fine to retain their spots in the Coventry starting XI.

Tatsuhiro Sakamoto is a long-term absentee.

Scoreline Prediction

Coventry will still be high on that FA Cup victory, and with confidence flowing, they should have enough to win this one away from home, albeit likely in a narrow fashion

Huddersfield 0-1 Coventry.
