Huddersfield Town vs Middlesbrough Prediction

Huddersfield Town sit just outside the playoff spots and a win would see them move closer to the top six. Their recent head-to-head record against Middlesbrough, however, leaves a lot to be desired, with the Terriers having won just one of their last 10 games against Boro.

The visitors have been on a poor run of form and might not be able to muster enough chances to leave West Yorkshire with something. We are backing the hosts to secure a comfortable victory.

Prediction: Huddersfield Town 2-0 Middlesbrough
