Huddersfield Town v West Bromwich Albion - Team Report

Huddersfield boss Danny Cowley ready for challenge of West Brom

Danny Cowley acknowledges that Huddersfield are underdogs against West Brom – but the Town boss will relish the role.

The clash at the John Smith’s Stadium on Friday night has huge implications at both the top and bottom end of the Championship.

The hosts are desperate for points to remain in the division, while the Baggies must win to keep their automatic-promotion hopes in their own hands.

Victory for Huddersfield would all-but guarantee their survival ahead of another tough fixture at play-off hopefuls Millwall on the final day of the season.

“It’s one game at a time but they are two games we’re really looking forward to” Cowley told the media at his pre-match press conference.

“The West Brom game is a great game for us to be involved in. We accept we go in as underdogs but we enjoy being underdogs. I’ve spent my whole life being an underdog and it’s a story I know well.

“It’s about getting the process right. If we can, then we can accumulate points in the next two games.

“West Brom will be looking over their shoulder. They’re a good team who play with creativity and rhythm. They have to come at us but that creates opportunities for us.

“Our aim is to try to build on how we played at Sheffield Wednesday. Like always, we’ll be trying to win the game. But we are respectful of them and know they are where they are for a reason.”

Cowley is right, West Brom are looking over their shoulder after Brentford’s 100 per cent record since the restart, which included a 1-0 win against the Baggies, has seen them narrow the gap to only one point.

The trip to Huddersfield will be a fifth match in just 13 days for Slaven Bilic’s team, although the Albion boss insists they will be ready.

“We are expecting what could be the most important week of our careers. We have to give everything and be ready,” Bilic told the club’s official website.

“I never like to moan but I am not happy with the schedule and playing on Friday. I told the guys we have got to be more ready on Friday night than if the game was on Saturday. And we will be ready.

“With two games to go, it is in our hands. That’s where I have my optimism and belief.”

Huddersfield are without a win in four games, drawing three of them 0-0, while West Brom are unbeaten in five matches but head to West Yorkshire following back-to-back draws.

Huddersfield vs West Brom Betting Tips

West Brom will be hoping to return to winning ways and remain in the automatic promotion places when they take on a relegation threatened Huddersfield side this Friday night.

Only a win will do for the Baggies as they fight to keep their automatic promotion place. Following two straight draws, the team finds itself just a point above Brentford who have won eight straight Championship games.

Anything short of a win will not only confirm Leeds United’s promotion to the Premier League but it will also open the door for Brentford and their push for the top two.

All this comes at the expense of Huddersfield who are still in the midst of their own battle; a relegation battle.

The Terriers are three points above the drop zone but a win over West Brom would massively boost their survival hopes.

The main issue for Danny Cowley’s men is finding goals. Huddersfield have picked up three points from their last four games however, they all came form 0-0 draws. As it stands, the Terriers haven’t scored in over 360 minutes of Championship football.

West Brom, on the other hand, have scored ten in their last five and are currently enjoying a five-game unbeaten run.

Similarly to yesterday’s encounter between Leeds and Barnsley, this too could prove to be a close encounter between two teams at different ends of the table.

With that in mind, our recommendation is to back a slender 1-0 win for West Brom at the price of 5/1.

     Huddersfield Town 2-1 West Bromwich Albion - Match Report

    Huddersfield beat West Brom to seal Leeds’ promotion to Premier League

    Emile Smith Rowe’s late goal secured a Huddersfield victory that was celebrated across west Yorkshire as they beat West Brom 2-1 to all but assure their safety and send Leeds into the Premier League.

    The result will be enjoyed in west London as well. West Brom’s automatic promotion hopes are out of their hands as defeat leaves them only one point above Brentford, who travel to Stoke on Saturday.

    However, Huddersfield could breathe a sigh of relief with Smith Rowe’s 86th-minute goal moving them six points clear of the drop zone.

    It was a miserable end to a frustrating night for West Brom, who were on the back foot almost immediately as Chris Willock struck just four minutes in, and were perhaps lucky to level before the break with more than one player offside when Dara O’Shea headed in from a free-kick.

    Huddersfield started the game without a goal in 378 minutes, a drought which prompted manager Danny Cowley to make sweeping changes in attack as Juninho Bacuna, Andy King, Chris Willock and Fraizer Campbell replaced Smith Rowe, Karlan Grant, Elias Kachunga and Steve Mounie.

    And it paid almost immediate dividends as Bacuna drew a foul from O’Shea on the left, then whipped in a vicious free-kick.

    Sam Johnstone could not hold it, spilling the ball at the feet of Willock who poked home.

    Willock was on a charge, breaking into the box again moments later before his shot was charged down, then setting up Lewis O’Brien who scuffed his shot badly.

    West Brom were slow to get going, reliant on set-pieces to get close to Huddersfield’s goal in the opening 20 minutes, but Ahmed Hegazi headed the best of the crosses over.

    The visitors grew into the game after the drinks break and almost snatched an equaliser before half-time, with Richard Stearman heading off the line to block Conor Townsend’s effort.

    And moments later the Bagges were level, albeit in controversial circumstances. Grady Diangana was clearly offside – and did not appear alone – as Matheus Pereira sent in a free-kick which Jonas Lossl could not hold, allowing O’Shea to stoop and head home.

    They should have been ahead moments later as they broke quickly, with Diangana’s cross just eluding Hal Robson-Kanu.

    Bilic, having already brought on Kamil Grosicki and Filip Krovinovic, kept innovating as Darnell Furlong and Charlie Austin were sent on before the hour.

    And the subs were having an impact as Krovinovic showed great feet to win the ball in midfield and create space, only to see his shot blocked after swapping passes with Diangana. From the resulting corner, Pereira’s powerful shot was parried by Lossl.

    But the attacking moves from Bilic left his side looking vulnerable on the break, and Huddersfield were a couple of mis-placed passes from Bacuna and O’Brien away from being through on goal just before the second drinks break.

    The tension grew in the final 10 minutes as West Brom desperately sought a way through. Substitute Callum Robinson scuffed a shot after linking up with Pereira, and their lack of cutting edge proved costly.

    Huddersfield broke again as O’Brien found the run of Smith Rowe, and the 19-year-old rolled the ball beyond the reach of Johnstone.
