Our tipster thinks that Scott Parker's men can pick up all three points when they take on the Terriers at the John Smith's Stadium in Friday's fixture

Friday night football comes from West Yorkshire as Huddersfield Town host Fulham at John Smith's Stadium.

These two teams met in the Premier League last season, but both suffered relegation at the end of a challenging campaign.

Both sides, then, have set their sights on a push for promotion back to the top tier this term and Friday's fixture promises to be a fascinating, hard-fought contest.

Latest odds

Beaten by Lincoln City in the Carabao Cup in midweek, Huddersfield have yet to record their first win of the campaign. In fact, the Terriers have won just one of their last 28 competitive matches and are chalked up as a 7/4 (2.75) chance to break that barren run here.

Scott Parker's side were beaten by Barnsley in their opening match of the Championship season but bounced back to beat Blackburn Rovers last weekend

The west Londoners can be backed at 31/20 (2.55) to come out on top at John Smith's Stadium. The odds compilers offer 9/4 (3.25) that Friday's fixture ends in stalemate.

Team news

Huddersfield's 21-year-old striker Karlan Grant has started the season superbly with goals in both of his side's league matches thus far this term.

The visitors themselves boast an impressive array of attacking talent. Aleksandar Mitrovic, Ivan Cavaleiro, Anthony Knockaert and Tom Cairney are all capable of getting amongst the goals.

Preview

Five of the last seven matches between these teams have featured fewer than three goals and 888Sport offer 17/20 (1.85) that there are no more than two goals scored when the rivalry is renewed on Friday.

The same firm go 27/25 (2.08) that either side fails to find the net. Both sides enjoyed home victories to nil when they met in the Premier League last term, and is a 19/5 (4.80) chance that the Terriers come out on top without conceding this time out.

Prediction

Huddersfield will hope to put their stuttering start to the Championship campaign behind them with a win on Friday. Fulham, though, will offer stiff opposition and Parker's men will be confident of claiming victory.

Recent matches between these teams have been close, but the visitors' quality in the final third could prove pivotal. Should Fulham's front men fire, 888Sport's 31/20 (2.55) quote for the west Londoners come out on top could represent real value.
