[online!] Watford vs Huddersfield live free 07.04.2023
Having been held by bottom-placed Wigan Athletic, Watford made the short trip to Luton Town and departed with a 2-0 defeat to their rivals, who are managed by the first head coach of the season in Rob Edwards. While Watford have no direct rivals remaining on their schedule, it remains to be seen whether that will prove to be an advantage or not. Opponents Huddersfield make the long trip to Hertfordshire having put together their best form of the season, collecting seven points from three games.
Match preview © Reuters On separate occasions under different managers this season, Watford have been regarded as one of the favourites for promotion, yet they head into their final seven matches as clear outsiders. With new boss Chris Wilder collecting just four points from as many matches, the Hornets are now down in 11th position and under pressure to produce a near-perfect run-in. Although Watford have lost just four times in 19 games on familiar territory, there have been six draws, stalemates which have ultimately proven to be the distance.
Preview: Watford vs. Huddersfield - prediction, team newsSports Mole previews Friday's Championship clash between Watford and Huddersfield Town, including predictions, team news and possible lineups. Watford play host to Huddersfield Town on Good Friday knowing that they realistically require three points to catapult themselves back into the race for the Championship playoffs. At a time when the Hornets sit six points adrift of the top six with seven matches remaining, Huddersfield can move outside of the relegation zone for the first time in months with a win at Vicarage Road.
Neil Warnock has accumulated 11 points from his eight matches in charge of the Terriers, their last two contests ending in wins over promotion contenders Millwall and Middlesbrough. Huddersfield were trailing 1-0 at half time to the latter before producing one of the most stunning revivals of the season, scoring four times in the first 19 minutes after the restart on their way to a 4-2 success. As a result of Reading's six-point penalty, Huddersfield now sit within touching distance of 20th place and higher, and maximum points being earned on Friday would move the club outside of the relegation zone for the first time since August.
