Huddersfield Town are set to play hosts to Sheffield Wednesday at the John Smith's Stadium on Tuesday in their latest EFL Championship encounter.

Huddersfield Town come into this game following a 2-0 win against QPR on Saturday at the John Smith's Stadium.

First-half goals from young attacker Josh Koroma and left-back Harry Toffolo secured the win for Carlos Corberan's side.

Sheffield Wednesday, on the other hand, lost 2-1 to Daniel Farke's Norwich City on Saturday at Carrow Road.

Young forward Josh Martin and right-back Max Aarons scored two late second-half goals to ensure victory for the Canaries after attacker Josh Windass had put Sheffield Wednesday ahead.

Huddersfield Town vs Sheffield Wednesday Prediction

Huddersfield Town manager Carlos Corberan worked under Marcelo Bielsa at Leeds United, and has impressed this season. Midfielder Jonathan Hogg has been in fine form, while young attacker Josh Koroma and midfielder Carel Eiting, on loan from Ajax, have both shown their talent.

Sheffield Wednesday, on the other hand, sit at the bottom of the league table. They began the season with a six-point deficit, and have a job to do in order to ensure that they do not get dragged into a relegation battle.

The Terriers have not been a consistent team, but Sheffield Wednesday's current form is poor. Huddersfield Town should be able to edge past them.

Prediction: Huddersfield Town 2-0 Sheffield Wednesday
