Hillsborough

It’s a Yorkshire derby in the Championship this weekend as high-flying Huddersfield Town make the short trip to Hillsborough to take on Sheffield Wednesday.

Sheffield Wednesday come into this one just four points behind their opponents, and having crashed out of the FA Cup last weekend to Premier League Middlesborough, the push for promotion is really all they have to play for. The Owls have drawn their last two Championship fixtures against opposition they really should have got the better of, and so their fans will be expecting a much better showing against their local rivals.

David Wagner’s Huddersfield Town have been in scintillating form of late, and casually brushed aside League One side Port Vale in the FA Cup last Saturday.  Unbeaten in their last seven league games, the Terriers look real contenders for a play-off position at the very least, with the West Yorkshire club just six points behind 2nd-placed Newcastle.  A trip to Hillsborough will be a tough trip, but Town fans will go into it full of confidence of getting a result.
