It will be third versus second in the EFL Championship when Huddersfield Town and Bournemouth lock horns at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday.

The hosts will head into the game desperate to get one over the Cherries, having lost all five meetings since 2018.

Huddersfield fell to a 2-0 defeat away to Millwall in their last outing. They have now failed to win their last three games across competitions, losing twice and drawing once since a 3-0 win over Peterborough United on March 4.

With 63 points from 38 games, Huddersfield Town are currently third in the EFL Championship table, three points off their Saturday visitors.

Bournemouth, meanwhile, were held to a 1-1 draw by Reading at the Vitality Stadium in their last outing. The Cherries head into Saturday's game with just one loss in their last seven games. They lost 2-1 at Preston North End on March 5.

Bournemouth will fancy their chances of returning to winning ways this weekend as they face an opposing side of who they have defeated in each of the last five meetings between the teams.

Huddersfield Town vs Bournemouth Prediction

On a three-match winless run, Huddersfield Town appear to have run out of ideas as they head into Saturday's game in search of a pick-me-up. However, standing in their way are a Bournemouth side that have lost only once in their last eight league games. Given the stakes in this contest, Bournemouth could emerge victorious and consolidate their hold on second place.

Prediction: Huddersfield Town 1-2 Bournemouth.
