Round three of the new Championship campaign sees Huddersfield, who came home in third last season, lock horns with Stoke at John Smith's Stadium this coming Saturday.

Huddersfield are still without a single point on the board following the first couple of matches in the Championship. They will be very eager to get off the mark in this round three.Stoke have a win and a defeat to show from the first couple of Championship outings and which side of the coin will they see at John Smith's Stadium? Surely, Stoke won't be a pushover at this early point of the season.

Their upcoming match is a difficult challenge for Huddersfield, who next face Stoke in their continuous fight to avoid relegation. They should be highly motivated to spring a surprise, even against a tough opponent like Stoke.

Huddersfield scored 13 goals, conceded nine and fought their way to three clean sheets in their previous ten matches.

Stoke are currently decent goalscorers, as they managed a bearable 11 goals in the past ten outings for an average of 1.1 goals a game. Their opponents scored a total of ten goals, and while Stoke claimed four clean sheets, they conceded an average of one goals per match.

Huddersfield vs Stoke Prediction

Huddersfield claimed a middle-of-the-road three wins in their previous six matches on home soil in the Championship. They also drew one and lost two, as they scored seven and conceded five goals.

A top half finish is the dream for Huddersfield, but neutral spectators have them down for a season in the lower end of the Championship.

Stoke, meanwhile, won twice, while they've drawn zero and lost four in their last six away in the Championship.

A season somewhat above expectations could perhaps make Stoke a contender in a title race, though they do look capable of a podium finish if catching the right momentum.

You don't look for Huddersfield or Stoke, to provide with a lot of entertainment currently, as both are playing mostly tight matches with few goals. The value-bet lies with under 2.5 goals on Saturday.
