Huddersfield Town are back in Sky Bet Championship action as they take on Wycombe Wanderers at Adams Park on Tuesday 24 November 2020; 7pm kick-off.
The Terriers will return action just three days after their 4-3 defeat to Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium.
It’s Town’s second consecutive away league fixture, as Carlos Coberan’s side aim to get back to winning ways.
Wycombe Wanderers enter the fixture inside the relegation zone sitting in 22nd place in the league.
However, they come into the game in good form! Despite not picking up a point until match day eight, they have now only lost one in their last five.
Despite being dubbed by many as relegation favourites last season, Gareth Ainsworth’s side defied the odds and won promotion to the second-tier of English football for the first time in the Club’s history!
Wycombe’s high pressing and physical style of play makes them a formidable opponent in this league.
Despite Wycombe’s difficult start to the season, as mentioned above their improved form suggests that they have adapted to life in the Championship.
The Buckinghamshire side have picked up all nine of their points this season in their last five outings, with wins coming against Sheffield Wednesday and Birmingham City, and draws against Watford and Brentford last time out.
On their own turf this season, the Chairboys have picked up five points from six games.
Ainsworth will be hoping his side can take their current form into Tuesday evening’s clash at Adams Park.
As mentioned earlier, Town will look to bounce back from Saturday’s narrow 4-3 away defeat to Stoke City. On the road, the Terriers have won two, drawn one, and lost three, and sit 16th in the league.
Ones to Watch
Scott Kashket has been Wycombe’s main threat in front of goal this season, despite not appearing consistently during the Chairboys’ title-winning season in Sky Bet League 1 last term.
The forward is Wycombe’s top goalscorer this season, scoring three times and featuring in all 12 of their fixtures so far.
The speedy frontman likes to play on the shoulder, running in behind defences causing chaos if a team decides to play a high line.
Wycombe’s left-back Joe Jacobson played a vital role in Gareth Ainsworth sides’ promotion last season.
The Welshman chipped in with a phenomenal nine goals from defence while also getting two assists.
He has already matched his assist tally for last season, so do not be surprised to see him join the attack and try to add to the goals.
The 28-year-old midfielder arrived from Hibernian prior to this season and can play anywhere in attacking midfield.
His recent performances have seen called back up to the Republic of Ireland squad.
He also has Championship experience spending time at Preston North End, and the Chairboys may well look to him to control and calm the game down.
The sides have only ever faced each other 10 times competitively, with Town getting the better of Wycombe on six occasions. The Chairboys have won twice, with the other two occasions ending in draws.
This will be the first meeting between the two sides since 2012, when the Terriers ran out 6-0 winners away from home.
Wycombe have not managed a win against Town since 1994.
Tuesday’s meeting with the Chairboys is one of seven games in the Sky Bet Championship.

Luton Town vs Birmingham City (7pm)
QPR vs Rotherham (7pm)
Stoke City vs Norwich City (7pm)
