Today's Predictions for Huddersfield vs Reading

Relegated Reading have gone 12 games without a win in the Championship ahead of their meeting with Huddersfield on the final day of the campaign on Monday. Read our top Huddersfield vs Reading predictions for this week’s fixture.

Huddersfield to Win

Huddersfield completed the great escape on Thursday with a narrow win against Sheffield United, though as fate would have it, their victory confirmed Reading’s relegation and the teams meet at the John Smith's Stadium to contest the final fixture of the campaign on Monday. The Royals have failed to win 12 straight matches in the second tier and one last dollop of disappointment awaits when they visit a Huddersfield side that should enjoy playing with pressure in front of their own fans. Back at home win in this one.

Both Teams to Score – No

Neil Warnock’s Huddersfield kept a clean sheet against Sheffield United on Thursday and a follow-up shutout could be in the works when they host relegated Reading on Monday. With their spirits low and just one game to complete before they can slink away into the summer, the visiting players might not put too much effort into the final game of the campaign, and that could leave The Terriers untroubled. With those factors in mind, our second Huddersfield vs Reading prediction settles on both teams not to score.

Huddersfield vs Reading Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Huddersfield vs Reading lineups and team news for Monday’s Championship fixture below.

Huddersfield

Huddersfield will be without the services of Anthony Knockaert, Duan Holmes, Oliver Turton, Kieran Phillips, Faustino Anjorin and Yuta Nakayama this week. Town's midweek win over Sheffield United secured their survival and they can celebrate that fact on Monday afternoon.

Predicted Lineup for Huddersfield: Nicholls – Pearson, Lees, Helik, Ruffels – Hogg, Rudoni – Koroma, Diarra, Headley, Ward

Reading

Reading cannot call upon the injured Tom Ince, Liam Moore, Abdul-Rahman Baba, Dejan Tetek, Ovie Ejaria or Sam Hutchinson for the final day's fixture. The Royals have lost 21 out of 45 league games this term and their relegation has been deserved.

Predicted Lineup for Reading: Lumley – Yiadom, Holmes, Sarr, Guinness-Walker – Azeez, Hendrick, Casadei, Hoilett – Joao, Long

Player to Watch – Michal Helik

Michal Helik was superb at the back for Huddersfield in midweek and the Polish centre-half won six aerial duels and made five tackles to help The Terriers to their crucial victory over Sheffield United. The 27-year-old should be a steady presence for Town again on Monday.
