Wednesday aiming to bounce back against the Terriers
The sign of a good side is how they bounce back following a setback. So all eyes will be on Carlos Carvalhal’s team as they take on Huddersfield Town in a Yorkshire derby at Hillsborough in their first game since that shock defeat at Charlton before the international break.
The head coach certainly won’t be pressing the panic button after just one defeat and will be telling his players to start another long unbeaten run against the Terriers. To that end, it will probably be a familiar-looking line-up that faces Town.
Gary Hooper will probably partner Fernando Forestieri in attack but Carvalhal surely has to find a place somewhere in his starting line-up for Lucas Joao. Glenn Loovens, Barry Bannan and Jack Hunt have all been nursing knocks and Daniel Pudil may be due a rest but Jeremy Helan and Jose Semedo are among those standing by should they be needed.
In our featured bets in this game, we are offering 5/8 that there are Under 2.5 in our Total Goals market (Wednesday’s last three matches at Hillsborough in the Championship have been low-scoring affairs). But both sides have scored in Huddersfield’s last three away games and Both Teams To Score in this one is 21/20.
German David Wagner has his first match in charge of Huddersfield and his first priority will be to arrest the club’s slide down the table. Town have lost three of their last four and only won one of their last eight. They are just a couple of points above the relegation places but Wagner is promising to orchestrate a revival and with the kind of ‘full-throttle’ football he advocated while assistant to Jurgen Klopp at Borussia Dortmund – this, however, is a tough start.
Wednesday are 47/20 to win by 1 in our Winning Margins market with a 2-1 Correct Score available at 7/1.
The match kicks off at 3.00pm on Saturday, November 21st at Hillsborough
