Game:Huddersfield Town vs Sheffield Wednesday
Venue:The John Smith's Stadium
Kick-off:Sunday 16thOctober, 12pm
Huddersfield will entertain Sheffield Wednesday on Sundaylunch-time hoping to extend their lead at the top of the table. With Norwich hosting struggling Rotherham on Saturdayafternoon, it seems more likely that Town will need the three points to return to the top of the pile.
Wednesdaycan push themselves in to fifth place with a win depending on how other teams perform. Wednesdaymade a slow start and have won four of their six since, but haven't quite fixed their away form just yet. A win over Blackburn was almost a given, but remains their only win in six away games this season.
Wednesdayalso haven't put together back to back results on the road yet this season either, losing every other game. They do have a good record against Town though, having not lost in their last five meetings overall or their last five trips to this ground.

Do I believe that will happen? Probably. But so did people far knowledgeable than myself where Leicester were concerned. The fact is we can only look at this game based on the facts, and the facts show we have a very good price on a form team who lead the league. Being that this is a fairly local affair, it can only add to the attendance and pass of the crowd.Huddersfield are more than capable of winning this game. Back them to do so at odds of 8/5 with Bet365.
