Huddersfield Town defied their many critics last term by remaining in the Premier League, however the omens are certainly looking pretty poor this time around with nothing short of a miracle needed to save the Terriers’ top-flight status for another season. David Wagner’s men have never really got going and with just two wins from their 21 league outings, it is no surprise to see some bookies go as low as 1/16 on them dropping down to the Championship at the end of 2018/19. Indeed the West Yorkshire side have lost fifteen of their Premier League games this term and if they are to start picking up a few wins in the latter half of the campaign, then these will need to be against sides such as Cardiff City, otherwise the Terriers are well and truly doomed. Unfortunately for the visitors, we don’t envisage them managing anything for their efforts on Saturday afternoon and all the evidence suggests that Wagner’s men will take another massive step towards eventual relegation this weekend, the bookmakers giving away free bets on Cardiff City v Huddersfield Town.
Cardiff City have long been held as one of the favourites for the drop this season but they have been showing a few signs of improvement in recent weeks, Neil Warnock’s side enjoying wins over Southampton and Leicester City as well as a goal-less draw at Crystal Palace throughout December. Nevertheless they have been on the receiving end of a few hammerings of late although defeats to the likes of Manchester United (1-5) and Tottenham Hotspur (0-3) are certainly not disgraceful by any means and the visit of Huddersfield Town gives the Bluebirds a great chance to return to winning ways after the disappointment of their 1-0 FA Cup defeat to Gillingham last weekend, a chance which we expect them to grab with both hands on Saturday afternoon, Unibet Bookmakers going 13/10 on Cardiff City to win.
