The Championship continues this weekend and will see Huddersfield Town host Fulham in game week two of the league season.

Huddersfield Town finished just six points clear of the relegation places last season. They will be looking to get a higher-placed finish this campaign. The Terriers, however, failed to win on opening day as they drew 1-1 to Wayne Rooney's Derby County last weekend.

They are however through to the second round of the EFL Cup after defeating Sheffield Wednesday on penalties in the first round.

Fulham began their Championship campaign at home to Middlesbrough last week. The Cottagers also could not secure all three points on opening day as they played out a 1-1 draw. Marco Silva will be looking for his first official win as Fulham boss when they face Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

Huddersfield Town vs Fulham Prediction

Huddersfield Town have scored just one goal in their two games this campaign. However, they were dominant in those games and created the bulk of the chances. Huddersfield boss Carlos Coberan will be hoping his side can begin converting those chances when they face Fulham.

Fulham have also not been in their best goalscoring form under Marco Silva, scoring just twice under the new boss. That trend should end when both sides face on Saturday.

Prediction: Huddersfield Town 1-2 Fulham
