Huddersfield Town managed a 2-2 draw in the FA Cup against Reading at the weekend, now they get ready for league action and the visit of Charlton Athletic.
Huddersfield are 18th in the Championship, seven points above the bottom three, having won three of the last five games in the league.
Charlton Athletic have a much different record, they have not won any of the past six games, and although there is still plenty of the season left, they need to improve dramatically and soon if they are to keep their Championship status.
Huddersfield won the previous match between the two sides 2-1 at The Valley back in September.
Charlton have won just two of the previous eight games against Huddersfield and have their work cut out to improve that stat.
Here are THREE things to look out for in the Huddersfield Town v Charlton Athletic match….
1) Huddersfield’s home form
The Terriers have won the last three home games beating Bolton, Preston North End , and Rotherham, giving breathing space between them and the relegation threatened teams.
They have a good record against teams at home, and against teams that are below them in the league, so will be hoping to continue that when Charlton visit on Tuesday night.
Charlton need to have a good game plan to get something from the game, or they will leave empty handed from The John Smith’s Stadium with a bitter taste in their mouths.
2) Charlton’s leaky defence.
Charlton shipped two goals at the weekend to League Two side Colchester United, and have conceded 42 goals in the league, 21 of which away from home.
Clearly something that needs to improve, Charlton need to bolster their backline, but there has been little activity in the transfer market to rectify this problem.
At the current rate they concede just under two goals per game, which is a huge mountain to climb in every game.
3) James Husband
Huddersfield manager David Wagner, realised that in order to preserve the Terriers’ Championship status, they needed to improve the defence.
They wasted no time in the transfer window in bringing in James Husband from league leaders Middlesbrough.
Signed on loan until the end of the season, he will provide extra bit of quality at the back and should help to keep a few more clean sheets for the Town defence.
Husband is expected to make his first start for the club since joining on the 8th of January.
