Huddersfield Town haven’t made the most of their chances of late. Their ‘goals for’ figure equals just 3 versus opposing sides over their last six outings. In those games, The Terriers have also seen the number of goals against them come to 9.
Analysis of their past results shows that Huddersfield Town:
- haven't beaten Bournemouth in their previous 3 matches in the league.
- are undefeated in their last 5 league matches at home.
- have not won at home in their last 4 league matches. That's never good.
Bournemouth go into this meeting following a 4-1 Championship win over Coventry City in their previous outing.
In that game, Bournemouth managed 66% possession and 9 shots at goal with 5 on target. Coventry City got 7 shots at goal with 2 of them on target.
Showing their involvement in fruitful encounters, goals have been scored 22 times in the last 6 games in which Bournemouth have played, yielding a mean average of 3.67 goals each fixture. Opposition teams have got 8 of these goals. Let’s see whether or not that trend will end up being continued on in this game.
Going into this contest, Bournemouth are undefeated in their previous 3 league matches away from home.

Team News: Huddersfield
Christopher Schindler (Knee Injury) and Carel Eiting (Knee Injury) are not available for H'field boss Carlos Corberán.
Team News: Bournemouth
Due to a fully injury-free squad available to select from, Bournemouth manager Jonathan Woodgate doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of before this game.
We believe that Huddersfield may find it difficult to see themselves scoring against this Bournemouth lineup who we think should manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
Our tip is therefore for a highly competitive game with a 0-1 advantage for Bournemouth when the full-time whistle blows.
