Playoff positions remain the main aim for Premier League hopefuls Bournemouth as they travel to take on Huddersfield Town in the Championship. The match schedules for Tuesday at John Smith’s Stadium with kickoff at 7:30 pm.
The Cherries managed to secure a top-six finish following their fourth consecutive win in their last outing on Saturday. On the other hand, Huddersfield played out a goalless stalemate with Rotherham United to slightly improve their survival chances.
Arnaut Danjuma was on fire with a brace in the first half – including an opener in the 23rd second – proving the difference in their 4-1 win over Conventry at Vitality Stadium. The win was monumental but also levelled the Cherries to climb sixth on the table.
This week’s win will make it five wins in a row for the first time since December 2014, thus climbing to fifth on the table and gaining a seven-point edge over seventh-placed Reading. The South Coast is hitting good form at the perfect time, with 12 goals and only two goals conceded in their winning streak.
Huddersfield’s form could not be contrasting with only one win from their last nine league matches. Also, the side failed to score in their previous two. The Terriers’ form further dipped, especially after their goalless draw to Rotherham United. Their humiliating 7-0 loss to Norwich City is another bitter pill to swallow.

Huddersfield Town Team News
Before their heavy loss to Norwich City, there were five changes made by Carlos Corberan, and we expect minimal changes this time out. Pipa gets back into action after picking a minor injury while goalkeeper Ryan Schofield returned to illness.
Bournemouth Team News
Despite failing to find the back of the net, Woodgate will be happy with attacking proficiency even with Dominic Solanke. The Cherries have plenty of options to change things up for this clash. Jack Stacey could get a callup afterlife on the bench.
Prediction and Odds
We do not see any chances of the hosts changing the current woes to make a remarkable win against their visitors.
