Newcastle United vs Huddersfield Town

Rafael Benitez will be hoping for three points this Saturday to give the Newcastle United supporters something to cheer about after their, so far, lacklustre season when they meet Huddersfield Town at St James’ Park. Securing three points is crucial for Newcastle in this fixture, as they will not get a better chance to pick up a win this season. Huddersfield look set to return to the Championship by the end of the season as they frankly have not been good enough for the Premier League. The Toon managed to secure three points against their opponents in the first meeting between the sides, with a 1-0 win.

Newcastle United return to their St James’ Park this weekend looking to put three points between them and the bottom three which they currently sit just one point clear of. It has not been an easy season for Rafael Benitez and co’ with them securing just six wins from their 26 matches played. The Toon are without a win in their last three after drawing back-to-back games against Wolves and CSKA Moskva in a club friendly. With their opponents bottoming the Premier League table, the hosts arrive as favourites to secure the three points with odds of 5/6 with SkyBet.

With 34 goals conceded this season, Newcastle have been a hard side to score against but the lack of goals scored (24) themselves have been the reason for their poor results. Newcastle have only managed to score more than one goal, in a match once in their last five but with Huddersfield as their next opponents, they may be able to score more. SkyBet has them to score 2+ goals priced at 11/10. Salomón Rondón has seven goals this season for Newcastle and can be backed with Betway to score anytime for a price of 6/5.

Huddersfield Town’s second season in the Premier League has not held the same success as the first did for them, as they enter matchday 27 they sit down in 20th place. The Terriers need six points alone just to move up into 19th. It has been 14 games since Huddersfield last won a league match and since then they have suffered 13 defeats, meaning they have secured just one point. Their latest match saw them go up against Arsenal who they lost 2-1 to. Huddersfield can be backed with SkyBet for a price of 19/5.

The Terriers have scored just 14 goals all season which has been the route of all their problems this season, alongside their leaky defence which has conceded 48 goals. Huddersfield have gone goalless in four of their last five matches and Bet365 has them to go goalless again priced at 11/10. With Huddersfield struggling in front of goal and prone to conceding, you may want to back both teams not to score with Bet365 who are offering a price of 4/6.
