Huddersfield Town host Preston North End in the Championship on Tuesday night (October 18, 2022) at John Smith’s Stadium.
The hosts had a slow start to the season and were in the relegation zone. Their poor form prompted manager Danny Schofield to be fired. However, his replacement Mark Fotheringham struggled to stabilize the ship, recently losing 2-1 to the newly promoted Rotherham United.
Huddersfield is 23rd overall with just 11 points from 13 games. They are just a notch above the low and will be looking to widen that gap on Tuesday. Preston, meanwhile, has had mixed results this season but has had a tough time of late. They were beaten 2-0 by Stoke City in their last match. They fell to two goals in the second half after not registering a shot on target throughout the match.
