Huddersfield Town will welcome Wycombe Wanderers to the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday for a matchday 29 fixture in the EFL Championship.

The two sides have not exactly set the Championship alight this season and are both among the poorer sides in the division.

The hosts come into this fixture on the back of a 1-1 draw away to Luton Town. Wycombe Wanderers fell to a 2-0 defeat away to Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday.

That defeat meant the Chairboys are still without a league win in five games. Meanwhile, Huddersfield Town's seven-game winless run across all competitions stretches back to last year.

Despite their poor form, the Terriers still sit fairly comfortably in 17th spot. However, a loss here would have them looking nervously over their shoulders.

Things are more dire for Wycombe Wanderers on what is their first season in the Championship. They currently occupy bottom spot on the table and are three points from safety.

With just 11 games to go, Wycombe look sure-fire candidates for immediate relegation, barring what will be the greatest escape in English football history.

This will be only the 12th meeting between the sides. Huddersfield Town have a superior record with six wins and three draws. Wycombe Wanderers were victorious on two previous occasions.

Their most recent clash came on matchday 13 of the current season, an uneventful game that ended in a goalless stalemate.

Huddersfield Town vs Wycombe Wanderers Prediction

The poor form of both sides makes this match difficult to call, although it is likely to be an extremely cagey affair with few chances created.

Ultimately, Wycombe Wanderers have offered next to nothing this season and Huddersfield will not get a better chance of picking up three points.

We are predicting a narrow victory for the hosts.

Prediction: Huddersfield Town 1-0 Wycombe Wanderers
