Huddersfield Town will resume their debut Premier League campaign when they host West Ham United at The John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday.
Both sides are separated only by a couple of points, and find themselves in the bottom half of the table. Managers of both sides would look at this game as a good opportunity to earn some valuable points.
The Terriers lost 3-0 at Leicester City in their last league game, but they got back to the winning ways with a 2-1 FA Cup success at Bolton Wanderers during the midweek.
As things stand, the Terriers find themselves in the 11th spot, but their point-total of 24 means that they are just four points above the bottom three.
With two points fewer than their opponents, the Hammers sit in the 15th spot on the table. They have displayed remarkable improvement following the appointment of David Moyes.
They have lost once in their last six games, and in their last away game, they came out with a commendable 1-1 draw from Tottenham. However, they could only manage a goalless draw at League One side Shrewsbury in FA Cup during midweek.
This will be the second Premier League meeting between these two sides, and earlier this season, the Hammers claimed a 2-0 win at London Stadium.
