Following their relegation from the Premier League at the end of last season, Huddersfield Town were always expected to find the going tough back in the Championship although few really believed that they would be sitting joint-bottom of the table after five matches. That is exactly where the Terriers sit in the division however thanks to an utterly dreadful start to the season. Jan Stewart was sacked following an embarrassing 1-0 defeat at home to League One side Lincoln City in the first round of the Carabao Cup and interim boss Mark Hudson has thus far failed to turn things around with subsequent defeats to Fulham (1-2), Cardiff City (2-1) and Reading (0-2). Indeed after losing 2-1 at home to Derby County in their opening match of the season, the Terriers collected their only point courtesy of a 1-1 draw with Queens Park Rangers and as such it is hardly a surprise that punters have been backing the West Yorkshire side in their droves to be relegated straight down to League One at the end of 2019/20.
The Terriers are just 9/4 with Paddy Power Bookmakers to suffer a second successive relegation and given recent results it is clear that this is going to be a very tough season for the side. Wigan Athletic head the relegation betting market at odds of 17/10 thanks to their dismal run, the Latics starting in decent fashion with a 3-2 win over Cardiff City but subsequently losing to Preston North End, Stoke City (EFL Cup), Leeds United, Middlesbrough and Queens Park Rangers with ten goals conceded and just one scored along the way.

Sitting securely at the foot of the Championship table, Stoke City are a 4/1 shot to drop into League One at the end of the season, the Potters losing all-but-one of their opening five league matches with a solitary point collected in the 1-1 draw at home to Derby County. They have made it into the third round of the League Cup courtesy of a 5-4 penalty-shoot-out victory over high-flying Leeds United, however manager Nathan Jones would be better advised to attach more importance to leading his side to safety in the second-tier.
