Everything you need to know ahead of Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship game

- Huddersfield Town vs Watford
- 3pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium
- Match available to listen on iFollow

We are back at home for the first time since 12 November in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday 17 December, welcoming Watford to the John Smith’s Stadium.

The Terriers come into the game off the back of a narrow defeat away to Sheffield United.

Watford currently sit fifth in the table after a 0-0 draw at home to Hull City.

THE OPPOSITION

The Hornets are back in the Sky Bet Championship this season following their relegation from the Premier League last season – they have alternated between the Premier League and the Sky Bet Championship since they were relegated at the end of the 2019/20 season.

Slaven Bilić was appointed Watford manager on 26 September 2022 on an 18-month contract and in his first game in charge, his side beat Stoke away 0-4.

Watford currently sit fifth in the table, after having won two, drawn two and lost one of their last five games.

ONES TO WATCH

João Pedro

The 21-year-old is Watford’s joint top scorer this season with six goals and two assists across 18 appearances. The attacker has scored four from his last seven games, including a brace in a 2-0 win over Reading in November. Pedro has played most of his games at either attacking midfield or centre forward this season, playing a few games playing out wide. The Brazilian arrived at Watford from Fluminese in the 2019/20 season. Since then, he has played a crucial part in Watford’s previous promotion in the 2020/21 season and last season experienced playing in the Premier League.
