On Saturday Reading host Huddersfield Town in the final match of the 2020/21 Championship season.

Below we look at everything  you need to know about Terriers ahead of the curtain closer.

Recent Background

A season of disappointment for the Yorkshire side, they’re winless in their last three as the season stutters to an end.

With 69 goals conceded this term they are tied with Wycombe Wanderers as the league’s worst defence; however 48 goals scored is the highest of the bottom eight.

Last time out Carlos Corberan’s side stopped the rot with a 1-1 draw against Coventry City after two straight defeats.

Reading won the reverse fixture 2-1 at the John Smith’s Stadium with a Lucas Joao double after falling behind in the first half.

Overall the Royals are ahead in the head-to-head, with 26 wins to Huddersfield’s 16, since the first meeting between the sides in 1975.

Team News

With no players having recovered in time for the visitors; Fraizer Campbell, Isaac Mbenza and Alex Vallejo will likely remain missing.

Key stars Andy Rinomhota and Liam Moore may be back in contention for Veljko Paunovic after missing the 4-1 defeat to Norwich City last weekend.

Key Player

With five goals and seven assists wide-man Mbenza has been the standout for the away side, although he is likely to be out of the match on Saturday.

Juninho Bacuna, brother of former Royal Leandro, has eight goal contributions to his name from midfield.
