As Premier League football returns this weekend, Huddersfield Town will travel to the West Midlands to face Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday 25 November 2018.
The match at the Molineux is live on Sky Sports and will kick-off at 4pm – almost a year since Town’s last 4pm Super Sunday fixture (Town vs Manchester City at the John Smith’s Stadium).
After being crowned Champions of the Sky Bet Championship, Nuno Espírito Santo’s side immediately caught the eye of Premier League supporters drawing with Manchester City at home in the third gameweek of the season.
That result seemed to inspire the Wolves side that went on to go unbeaten during the month of September. The Club beat West Ham United, Burnley and Southampton – getting a clean sheet in them all – whilst, also picking up a draw at Old Trafford.
The month of September saw Nuno Espírito Santo pick up the Premier League Manager of the Month award for November – the first time a Wolves Manager has ever won the award.
Coming into this game, Wolves sits 11th in the table and have won one game in their last five. However, they come into this game off the back of a 1-1 draw with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.
Town has won its last three games against Wolverhampton Wanderers all 1-0. The latest was in the Sky Bet Championship as Izzy Brown’s 20-yard effort secured the Terriers’ place in the Play-Offs.
Since 1997, Town has won 12 out of 14 games against Wolves.
