Ben Parker makes confident Huddersfield v Leeds prediction

Leeds United Crest

Huddersfield Town will take on Leeds United at the John Smith's Stadium in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.

Ben Parker has predicted on TV Yorkshire that Leeds United will win against Huddersfield Town on Saturday afternoon.

The former Leeds defender, who is now on the books of Guiseley, believes that Steve Evans’s side will register a 2-0 victory in the Championship clash at the John Smith's Stadium.

"I will go for a 2-0 victory," Parker predicted on TV Yorkshire. "I think we will get an early goal, sit back, Huddersfield will try to come out, and a late, late second will kill them off."

Leeds will head into Saturday’s match on the back of a 1-0 victory over Cardiff City.

The win against the Bluebirds in the league game at Elland Road was the Whites’ first home victory in almost eight months.

Evans’s side will indeed be confident of picking up all three points, and they should be considered as favourites.

Leeds are 17th in the Championship table at the moment with 16 points from 15 matches, six points above the relegation zone.

Huddersfield are also struggling and are currently a place and a point behind the Whites.

The Terriers will head into Saturday’s game on the back of a 2-2 draw with Reading away from home in the Championship.
