The Championship table toppers Brighton will tackle fellow Championship team Huddersfield this evening in the John Smith’s Stadium, home ground to latter.
Huddersfield the home side in this encounter will be looking to that as an advantage for something as they aim to progress up the table.
They have been really vulnerable at the back, conceding 30 goals in 27 games which is the 2nd highest conceded by the top 8 teams in the league. However, their home form has seen them lose only twice this season, scoring 19 goals in the 13 games played this season.
Huddersfield have now won 8 out of their last 10 games in all competitions and will look to create trouble for Brighton who have looked slightly vulnerable on the road. 9 of their 13 games this season have seen both them and their opponents score which means 2 goals looks a good chance of landing.
Brighton the visitors, come into this encounter looking to maintain their form of victories which has now seen them 7 out of their last 8 games in all competitions and with just 1 loss coming against Lincoln City in the FA Cup which was a shock loss after they went 1-0 up.
They have been focussed on getting promoted to the Premier League, where they now lead the division by 1 point and with a game in hand. Brighton travel to promotion chasing Huddersfield as well and will know that they need to find the back of the net early on in order to have a chance to win this encounter. A lot of reliance will been on Glen Murray who has already netted 15 goals for them this season. Their offense has been pretty decent netting 43 goals in 27 games, which is almost a 1.5 goals per season but their strong suit has been not he defensive end where they have conceded only 18 goals in 27 games. Only 8 out of 27 games for Brighton have seen less than 2 goals.
With both teams coming into this encounter with great form behind them, I cannot help but look to back at least Over 2.5 goals to be scored in this encounter. Odd 2.00
