Foot Predictions shows Saturday’s championship clash between Huddersfield Town and Wycombe Wanderers, including predictions, preview and possible lineups.
Huddersfield Town go to their meeting with Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday afternoon, sitting just five points above the relegation zone of the championship.
Meanwhile, the Chairboys have been five games without a win, leaving the minors in the division with up to 12 safety points.
After drawing with Stoke City and Luton Town, there are signs that Huddersfield is still playing Carlos Corberan at an important time of the season.
However, scoring just five points from eight games has turned Terriers into candidates for relegation, increasing pressure on the Spaniard.
As long as Huddersfield remains in 17th position, Corberan will be pleased that his team is in a position to make rapid progress in qualifying.
However, it will not be lost in the club hierarchy that Huddersfield is currently the team with the worst performance in the division, a record that will not allow it to continue in the long run.
Corberan will have no better chance of getting his project at John Smith’s Stadium back on track, but the defeat will raise more questions about whether he is the right man for the job.
As far as Wycombe is concerned, they had no choice but to attack this game after three poor performances against other relegation rivals.
Gareth AinsworthThe team’s team was fortunate to win a point against Birmingham City, although this did not prevent the Chairboys from falling further away from the dispute.
With meetings with many of the promotion candidates around the corner, Ainsworth and his team realistically have to collect a significant amount of points in games against Huddersfield, Derby County and Millwall.
Whether that will be possible remains to be seen, but Ainsworth hopes that having already been rejected by the majority of the media, it will be the catalyst for one of English football’s greatest survival proposals.

Both teams will see this as the perfect opportunity to get back on track, increasing the likelihood that two attacking teams will be named their respective managers. However, Huddersfield has had the advantage of playing at home this season and we see no reason why they won’t win in this game.
