What a difference a few days makes in the life of the championship; five days ago Huddersfield Town could not buy a win at home for love nor money. Last Saturday that luck had changed and Huddersfield ran out 2-1 winners against Ian Holloway’s Millwall. Town had failed to win a home game since March 2014.

They say consistency is a key factor in this league and one or two results either way can result in a team either being basked in glory or worse still basked in failure. Chris Powell will be looking to fire his troops to their first back to back championship victories since early December 2013. Furthermore the result has taken the club out of the dreaded drop zone and up to 21st place on eight points.

Grant Holt’s thirty minute cameo for the blue and white army of West Yorkshire in the last game helped provide a big threat and it will be interesting to see if the well travelled striker will make his full debut. Shouts from within the camp suggest that the formation tonight will be to benefit the likes of Wells, Holt and the ever improving Harry Bunn. Town are most likely to stick with the back four that started against Millwall, although experienced Anthony Gerrard is potentially in line for a call up; having gained more game time playing for the U21s.

Wingers seem to be a position of considerable question for Town at present; however the Huddersfield manager was quick to point out at his midweek press conference that Radoslaw Majewski will shortly be available after a personal issue. Tricky winger Adam Hammill has been on the road to recovery after having injuries affect the beginning of his season.

Tonight’s opponents Wolverhampton Wanderers have been on a mission since they were promoted back into the championship. Excellent teamwork and a number of positive results have seen them propelled up to 6th place on eighteen points. Wolves’ fans will feel slightly hard done by in their previous fixture who was leading against a stubborn Reading side that refused to be beaten at home.

Glenn Murray levelling for the home side at the death; gave the game between the two sides a 3-3 scoreline respectively. Wolves’ fans will be hoping that back on home soil that they can rectify the errors they made in the previous game to come up with a positive result.

Wolves are expected to name a similar line up to the one that played Reading on Sunday evening. One question left unearthed is that of loan signing Yannick Sagbo.

The Hull striker has found his premier league chances bare little fruit this season, and has opted for a spell in the midlands until January. Victory tonight for the club would mean an extremely surprising catapult to the summit of the championship table.

Prediction: Wolves 2 Town 1
