West Bromwich Albion are back on their travels this weekend, heading up to Yorkshire and the John Smith's Stadium to take on relegation-threatened Huddersfield Town in the Sky Bet Championship (ko midday).

The Baggies held on to earn a point at QPR in midweek, with the Loftus Road outfit piling plenty of pressure on Alex Palmer's goal in the second 45. 

Hosts Huddersfield slipped to a 1-0 reverse at Cardiff City on the same night Carlos Corberán's men were in the capital. 

The Terriers, who are unbeaten at home in their last four against Albion, won the reverse fixture 2-1 at The Hawthorns back in September thanks to Jack Rudoni's last-minute strike in front of the Smethwick End.

The opponents

Just like Wednesday's opponents QPR, Huddersfield Town are a team fighting for their Sky Bet Championship lives.

The Terriers have collected 38 points from their 36 matches and are one of many teams threatened by relegation to the third tier of English football with only two months left of the 2023/24 campaign. 

They were beaten 1-0 by Cardiff City in midweek, a result which would have come as a huge frustration on the back of really positive results away at Watford (2-1) and at home to neighbours Leeds United (1-1).

Sunday's hosts have only lost three of their last ten league matches and will know every single point picked up between now and May 4th will be incredibly valuable. 

They're managed by 50-year-old German Andre Breitenreiter. The former Schalke, Hannover, FC Zurich and Hoffenheim boss was appointed on February 15 2024 and is their third permanent gaffer this season, following on from Neil Warnock and Darren Moore.

His Terriers record reads played three, won one, drawn one and lost one.

One to remember

Jed Wallace's brace helped Albion fight back from two goals down to draw 2-2 at Huddersfield Town last season.

Faustino Anjorin scored twice inside the opening half-an-hour for the hosts to put them in a commanding position, only for the Baggies to hit back through the wide man and take home a share of the spoils.

Did you know?

The Baggies have the opportunity to go five away games unbeaten for the first time since a run of five between August 2021 and September 2021 on Sunday afternoon.

Carlos Corberán's men have picked up one win and three draws from their last four encounters on their travels, beating Plymouth 3-0 and drawing 2-2 with Ipswich Town, 1-1 with Hull City and 2-2 with QPR. 

Albion have been beaten in three of their last four trips to the John Smith's Stadium though. The last time they won at Huddersfield was a 2-0 FA Cup triumph in January 2010.
