Huddersfield Town vs Norwich City Prediction and Betting Tips | 26th August 2023

Huddersfield haven
Huddersfield haven't beaten Norwich in over six years

Huddersfield Town host Norwich City at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday for a clash in the EFL Championship, looking to pick up their first win of the season.

With just one point in the bag from three games, the Terriers are down in 21st position in the league standings.

Neil Warnock's side began their season with back-to-back losses to Plymouth Argyle (3-1) and Leicester City (1-0) before a 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough earned them their first point.

In the meantime, Huddersfield were also knocked out in the first round of the Carabao Cup by Middlesbrough, who prevailed 3-2.

By contrast, Norwich have seen a different trajectory this season. The Canaries have won two games at this early stage of the season to sit in third place in the Championship table with seven points in three games.

It would have been three from three, had Norwich not conceded a penalty in stoppage time to Southampton, who pegged them back in a thrilling 4-4 draw on matchday two.

Unlike Huddersfield, the Norfolk outfit progressed into the second round of the Carabao Cup following a 1-0 win over Queens Park Rangers thanks to a 99th-minute strike from Jonathan Rowe.
