History of the Huddersfield Town v Bournemouth fixture

Huddersfield prepare to entertain Bournemouth at Galpharm Stadium on Tuesday evening, and hold the advantage on previous meetings between the two. Of the 18 games played, Terriers have recorded 6 wins, and Bournemouth have come away with 3 victories.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Galpharm Stadium was just last season, in September 2006, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a League One match.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Its a close one to call, but I think that Terriers's reasonable showing at home is going to see them scrape past Bournemouth. Home Win
