Huddersfield vs Sheff Wed – Play-Offs
Sunday 14th May 12:00, The John Smith’s Stadium
Match Preview and Betting Tips
Huddersfield are the only side of the four that made the Play-Offs never to have featured in the Premier League before, but they are a club with a rich history and perhaps now is their time to return to the top flight.
Sheff Wednesday stand in the way of the Terriers this week, and the pair lock horns in their 1st leg at The John Smith’s Stadium tomorrow.
The visitors finished 4th via goal difference ahead of Huddersfield, and its by fine margins that these play-off ties are usually decided. The bookies make Wednesday the favourites to make the final, and that is probably down to both sides end of season form and the visitors good defensive record.
Huddersfield ended the campaign with three defeats from their last six matches, while Wednesday picked up five wins during that same period.
Both sides top scorers are on 12 league goals this season, with Kachunga leading the way for the hosts and Forestieri for the visitors. Both teams also have a second top scorer in the league on 10 goals, so they are very evenly matched going forward.
I can see this game being very tight and tense, so I’ve put my money on under 2.5 goals being scored, Hutchinson to be booked first and the end result being a goalless draw.

When the sides last met in January Wednesday played the role of hosts, and the first half passed by without any goals.
Wallace broke the deadlock just 9 minutes into the second forty-five, and teammate Forestieri confirmed the victory in stoppage time with the Owls second goal, but the hosts were given a helping hand after Huddersfield midfielder Payne was shown a red card in the 70th minute.
