On Monday night, when Huddersfield Town play Coventry City away in the Championship, Darren Moore will take the reins as the team’s head coach for the first time. The visitors are now ranked 16th in the standings with eight points after their first seven games, while Coventry is ranked 18th with seven points after seven games.
Coventry vs Huddersfield Town
After losing in the play-off final the previous year, Coventry has had a difficult start to this season. The visit to Huddersfield appears to be a fantastic opportunity to pick up some much-needed three points.
The Terriers’ two-game winning streak came to an end in a midweek draw with Stoke, and they now face a team they had trouble beating last year. Coventry’s 2023–24 season hasn’t gotten off to the best of starts, as they only accrued seven points through the first seven league games. Coventry has gone five games (four draws and one loss) without a victory. They suffered an away loss at Cardiff in the previous match, falling down 3-2. For the majority of the game, the home team had the upper hand.
Huddersfield has entered a new era under Moore, who was appointed head coach last week following the departure of Neil Warnock. This season, Huddersfield has had a rough start. They had one tie and four losses in their opening five games across all competitions.
Huddersfield have actually picked up seven points from their last three Championship games during a strong run, beating West Bromwich Albion and Rotherham United. Huddersfield and Stoke played 2-2 at home on Wednesday. Despite the visitors having significantly more opportunities to score than Huddersfield (1.03 xG), the home team managed to win.
Coventry has only won one of its seven games thus far, but with five points from three games, they are unbeaten at home. The Sky Blues’ victories over Middlesbrough and victories over promotion contenders Sunderland and Watford provide evidence that they can defeat Huddersfield.
Coventry’s past five games have seen both teams score, while Huddersfield’s last eight games have seen both teams score six times, including all three of their away games. Both clubs have been attacking well lately, scoring six goals between them in the last three Championship rounds. Yes, it appears to be the smart wager in this tie because that is the key reason both teams score.
Coventry easily defeated both of their opponents last season by a combined score of 6-0, helping the team qualify for the playoffs where they lost to Luton in the championship game to gain admittance into the English Premier League. The hosts are once again the favorites today, although they fall short of the lofty standard they set during the previous season. Both teams have so far failed to sign off in five of Coventry’s seven games. In four of Huddersfield’s games, that has occurred.
