In accumulators up and down the country this match will be going down as a home win – here’s why.
Huddersfield are without a win in nine Championship matches. In those games they’ve scored eight and conceded twice as many.
Huddersfield’s slump has been dramatic. When these sides last met the Terriers were in the playoff positions – now they sit 16th. No Championship side is on a longer winless run at the moment.
If there’s a psychological importance to this game then it’s for the visitors. The last time a Huddersfield side went 10 league games without a win they were relegated from Division One.
This game doesn’t promise goals.
Leicester’s last four games have seen a grand total of three goals at either end. City fans who’ve travelled home and away have seen fewer goals than any of their Championship counterparts.
Huddersfield meanwhile have hit fewer shots on target than any other side in the division, just 101.
If it’s level a half time – back the Foxes. Huddersfield have yet to win a match in which they haven’t led at the break. No team has a better record in the second half than Nigel Pearson’s men.
Huddersfield haven’t won in Leicester since 1954. There’s every chance their wait for a win here will go on.
