Huddersfield vs Sheffield Wednesday Match Preview
Huddersfield made the change in the international break and appointed the highly-rated Danny Cowley as their new manager. He inherits a side who sit in 23rd and have lost each of their last four though the expected goals data feels they have been unlucky and should have seven more points.
At the John Smith’s Stadium, the Terriers have struggled this season losing each of their last three and you have to go back to February for their last league win here. Karlan Ahearne-Grant has netted twice in his three home appearances.
Sheffield Wednesday are also under new management and have gone for Gary Monk though they were also heavily linked with Cowley. Monk inherits a much better position with nine points on the board though they have lost back-to-back league matches.
Away from Hillsborough, the Owls have suffered recent defeats to Millwall and Preston though have a road success at Reading. All four goals that the Yorkshire outfit have scored on the road this season have come from different players.
Both teams have new managers in the dugout and both will be wanting to get off to positive starts. Though also you could say both will not want to get off to a negative start and this might be the over-riding factor. New managers often look to make an immediate impact by tightening up at the back so we could see a cagey encounter especially when you add in the fact this is a local derby. The game to end in a draw is the main recommendation while the same result and under 2.5 goals (which covers both 0-0 and 1-1) is also a value selection.
