Swansea City will be looking to end their run of four games without a win when they welcome Huddersfield Town to the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.

The visitors fell to a disappointing defeat at the hands of Nottingham Forest last time out and will be looking to bounce back from that performance.

Swansea City severed a third-round exit from the EFL Cup last Wednesday as they fell to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Brighton and Hove Albion.

Irish forward Aaron Connolly scored twice in five minutes to send the Seagulls into the fourth round of the cup competition.

Prior to that, Russell Martin’s men failed to taste victory in their previous four league outings, losing one and picking up three draws.

The Swans, who have struggled to get going in the division, have picked up seven points from eight games and are currently 20th in the EFL Championship.

Huddersfield Town, on the other hand, were denied a second straight win last time out as they suffered a 2-0 defeat against Nottingham Forest.

Lewis Grabban broke the deadlock midway through the first half before Lee Nicholls scored an own goal to double the visitors’ lead.

This followed an impressive 3-0 victory over Blackpool, where Josh Koroma, Mathew Pearson and Jonathon Hogg all scored second-half goals to condemn the Seasiders to defeat.

With 13 points from eight games, Carlos Corberan’s men are currently seventh on the log, level on points with Blackburn in the final playoff places.

Swansea City vs Huddersfield Town Head-To-Head

Swansea City vs Huddersfield Town Prediction

While Swansea City have endured a poor start to the season, they boast enough quality in their squad capable of ending this poor run and rising up the table. However, they take on a Huddersfield side who appear to have hit their stride this season. We predict they will cancel out the efforts of the visitors and force a share of the spoils.
