Huddersfield Town registered their only second away win of the season when they won 4-1 at Watford last weekend. The Terriers would be a more confident bunch than usual when they make the trip to Southampton on Saturday.
The Saints are winless in their last five league games, and they will come into this game on the back of consecutive defeats to Leicester City and Chelsea. As things stand, the South Coast side find themselves three points behind the Terriers and 12th in the league table.
Meanwhile, the Terriers have picked up two wins in their last three league games, following a run of four consecutive defeats. They have 18 points from the same number of games and sit 11th on the table.
Huddersfield have struggled to score goals on the road this season, but there were encouraging signs last weekend as the likes of Aaron Mooy, Elias Kachunga, and Laurent Depoitre found themselves on the scoresheet.
Both sides have played only once in Premier League, and that meeting took place earlier this season. The game at the John Smith’s Stadium in August ended in a goalless draw.
