Recent respective form guides

Peterborough United's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. The goals for column just outweighs the goals against over this period, 10 to 8.

Huddersfield's away form is none too clever either, winning and losing 3 each of the last six games. The games have constituted a decent return of 11 goals for the Terriers, and 4 goals against.
