Huddersfield, a team struggling to stay above the relegation zone, hosts Brighton, comfortably hanging around the midsection of the Premier League standings. The match is scheduled to take place in the Kirklees Stadium, this Saturday.
Brighton has posted 15 points against their name after racking up four wins, three draws, and six losses. They have managed to score 14 goals from their 13 games, and have conceded 19 in return.
Huddersfield has 10 points on the board. Their record reads two wins, four draws and seven losses. They have scored only eight goals from their 13 games so far, and have conceded 22.
Brighton missed out on a chance to grab three points from a match last weekend, against Leicester, at home.
The hosts had gone ahead, courtesy a 15th minute goal. And the match appeared to be heading towards a home win. But a 79th minute penalty by Jaimie Vardy spoiled the celebration of the fans. The match ended with a 1-1 scoreline.
The advantage lies with the home team for this fixture. Last five wins in a row, in head-to-head ties, are in the name of home sides. Also, five of the last six wins, at this stadium, in matches between these teams, are registered in Huddersfield’s name
