Just last season this was a Premier League fixture. But with relegation blighting both of them at the end of the campaign, this game kicks off the Championship action for the weekend. While Fulham managed to get their first win of the season last weekend, the Terriers are still looking for their first. Read our Huddersfield v Fulham betting tips for more.

The Terriers opened the new season with a 1-2 loss on home soil against Derby. Not the start that they would have wanted having dropped down a tier. But they rallied themselves to some extent to collect a 1-1 draw at QPR last weekend. So at least they are off the mark. Both of the league goals that the Terriers have scored this season have been converted penalty kicks by Karlan Ahearne-Grant.
Huddersfield finish bottom of the Premier League last season, winning just three fixtures the entire campaign. Two of those three were at home (W2 D3 L14). One of them was a 1-0 success over Fulham as well, so they can at least look to that for some confidence. If you take last season into consideration it is a twelve match sequence of league games for Huddersfield now without a win (D3 L9). There may be a tough road ahead for Jan Siewert’s men this season.
The two traded 1-0 home wins last season
Fulham have won three of the last four against the Terriers
Huddersfield have won only one of the last 13 meetings
Fulham are W2 D1 from their three previous Championship visits to the John Smith’s Stadium
The Cottagers did not come out of the gates this season in winning form as was expected. They slipped to a 1-0 away loss at Barnsley. But they got themselves up and running last weekend with a comfortable 2-0 home success over Blackburn. So Scott Parker’s men are on the way and will be looking for some returns from this. Fulham remain one of the promotion favourites in the second tier for this campaign.
It was Fulham’s defence which failed them so badly in the top flight last season. They conceded a total of 81 goals. On their travels they did win just the one game which was out at Bournemouth in their penultimate road fixture of the season. After their loss at Barnsley on the opening weekend of this new season, Fulham have lost 9 of their last 10 league away games. But they do have a pretty decent run of head to head form going against the Terriers.
Fulham do have a strong squad for this Championship campaign and they look the more likely of the two to pick up a win. With both teams scoring in Huddersfield’s two games this season, we are going to plump for over 2.5 goals and the away win.

There is going to be a massively important three points up for grabs in this duel between two sides stuck in the Premier League drop zone. Huddersfield are rock bottom still searching for their first win of the campaign. Fulham have been punished badly at the back all season long and a loss against the Terriers could be the final straw for boss Slavisa Jokanovic. Read our Huddersfield v Fulham betting tips for more.

There was another defeat for Huddersfield last weekend in the Premier League as they suffered a 3-0 loss at Watford. That means they have taken back to back league defeats on board and have collected just the one point from their last six games. Not too surprisingly they are bottom of the pile having collected just three points all season and they are still looking for that elusive first win of the campaign. Their home form is W1 L4 for the season and they have yet to manage to get a single home goal on the board. Both teams not to score is at 21/20* (betting odds taken on November 2nd, 2018 at 2:54 pm)
The Terriers have only produced four goals in ten games all season and have netted just once in their last four fixtures. Four of their five home games this season have gone under 2.5 goals so there is a trend there. Even Though they are taking on side who have the worst defensive in the league, under 2.5 goals is at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on November 2nd, 2018 at 2:54 pm) and still appeals. If the Terriers could get that first win of the season it would move them off the bottom and one point ahead of Fulham. The Terriers have not earned a clean sheet in any of their last seven games. They have been trailing at half time in 70% of their matches and have also been losing at both half time and full time in 6 of their last 7 home matches
The Terriers and Fulham haven’t met since the 2016/17 Championship season
During that season, Fulham beat Huddersfield twice
Huddersfield have failed to win any of their last eleven games against Fulham
Both teams have scored in five of the last seven meetings
Fulham suffered a 3-0 loss at home against Bournemouth last weekend as once again their defence collapsed. The Cottagers have slipped into the drop zone and into a heap of trouble with a four-match losing streak going. They did have an extra game in midweek as they strangely sent out a full-strength side to face Manchester City in the EFL Cup. Fulham still lost 2-0 in the tie. Getting back to focus on the league only, Fulham have shipped at least three goals in each of their last four games. There have been over 2.5 goals netted in all but one of Fulham’s last nine Premier League fixtures.
Fulham have conceded a total of 28 goals in 10 games so far for that average of 2.8 goals per game against them. They have put together a three-match losing streak away from Craven Cottage. Their overall away form has seen them take one point from five games. As a positive though Cottagers though have averaged a goal per game away from home. A Fulham 1-0 correct score option is at 8/1 odds* (betting odds taken on November 2nd, 2018 at 2:54 pm). Three of their five away goals have come in the first half of matches, while ten of the fifteen away goals conceded by them have come in the second half of their road fixtures. There’s a high probability that boss Slavisa Jokanovic will be sacked if they lose on the weekend.
Such an important game for both of these and even though Fulham crashed badly at Cardiff recently, we are backing them to get the win against a fairly toothless Huddersfield side. This could go against the grain of Fulham’s results this season and end under 2.5 goals too.

Huddersfield, after conceding late in a draw at Derby in midweek, have lost the third spot to Reading in the Championship, but the Terriers do have a game in hand still. So they are still in with a shot at finishing third and a win in this one could secure a playoff spot. Fulham though have put together some good form and jumped into sixth spot at the expense of Leeds in midweek. Can they hang in there? Huddersfield are 11/8 for the win, with the draw at 12/5 and Fulham at 19/10.

The Terriers conceded a late goal out at Derby in midweek, which saw Reading jump above them into third place. But they have a game in hand over the Royals and will want to press on to make the most of their penultimate home game. Huddersfield have won their last two home games in the league, scoring three goals in wins over Norwich and Preston and at home this season they have gone W15 D2 L4 at home so have been a very strong home side. Two of those home defeats though have happened in their last five home games (W3 L2). The Terriers are the lowest scoring side in the top eight so you can expect this to be a low-scoring affair and under 2.5 goals at Bet365 is a quote of 11/10. Earlier this season the Terriers lost 5-0 out at Craven Cottage against the Cottagers and have only gone D2 L2 in their last four at home against them. So this is probably going to be a tight battle. A 1-1 correct score at Bet365 is a price of 11/2.
It’s been a good run from Fulham to battle their way into the top six. They have won four of their last five games in the Championship (L1). They have been in great form out on the road as well with a W4 D1 L1 record in their last six. They have won their last two away games in the league in beating Rotherham and Norwich. Each of their last three league games (home and away) the Cottagers have won 3-1. That’s a big 20/1 price in the Bet365 correct score market. Overall this season Fulham have gone W10 D6 L5 on the road in the second tier. It is now just a matter of hanging in there and keeping Leeds (who are level on points with them) off their backs in their play off push. They have won two of their last three at Huddersfield so have a little bit of form there as well. In the Bet365 anytime goalscorer market, Elias Kachunga and Nahki Wells are 13/10 joint favourites, with Fulham’s Chris Martin and Collin Quaner at 6/4.
Draw: Hard to pick a winner out of this one. Huddersfield are a good home side but Fulham have been playing very well out on the road in this one. There’s a good chance that the points will be shared in this one and a 1-1 correct score has some appeal.
