Albion v Huddersfield Town match preview

24 February 2018

ALBION host Huddersfield Town at The Hawthorns on Saturday as they look to get their Premier League survival hopes back on track (ko 3pm).

The opposition 

Huddersfield currently sit just outside the relegation zone in 17th place on 27 points having won seven, drawn six and lost 14 of their 27 matches so far this campaign.

Their last outing was a 2-0 defeat at home to Manchester United in the FA Cup fifth round last weekend.

Last time out 

The most recent fixture between the two sides was in November as Rajiv van La Parra’s stunning strike handed Huddersfield a 1-0 win.

Our last win against against the Terriers was back in January 2010 as late goals from Graham Dorrans and Chris Wood helped Albion along to a 2-0 FA Cup triumph.
