Recent respective form guides

Huddersfield Town will be hoping to improve on their poor home form, collecting just 4 draws from the last six contests. While Terriers have scored 8, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Birmingham City's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Blues have hit 7 goals, 10 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Huddersfield Town find themselves struggling down in 17th position in the league having picked up 32 points from their 26 matches.

Birmingham City are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 29 points from 26 matches.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Its been a distinctly poor show from Huddersfield Town at home in recent games, and, though we cannot see a run starting here, we do think the Terriers will at least gain a draw. No-score draw
