Huddersfield Town will trade tackles with Coventry City at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday, with three points on the line in the EFL Championship.

The hosts come into this clash off the back of a 5-2 thrashing at the hands of Blackburn Rovers. Adam Armstrong starred with a hat-trick to help the Riversiders pick up victory on home turf.

Coventry City suffered a 1-0 home defeat to Preston North End. Alan Browne scored a penalty midway through the second half to secure three points for the visitors.

The Sky Blues have guaranteed their safety in 19th spot, with 12 points separating them from the drop zone. Huddersfield Town are directly below them in 20th but need at least a win from their final two games to guarantee their survival.

Huddersfield Town vs Coventry City Head-to-Head

The Terriers have eight wins and three draws to their name, while Coventry City were victorious in five previous games.

Their most recent meeting came on 16 December 2020 in a largely forgettable goalless draw.

Huddersfield Town have been in poor form which has seen them pick up just one win from their last eight league games. Coventry's defeat to Preston halted a run of three consecutive victories.
