EFL pundit issues “biggest” Huddersfield Town, Birmingham City prediction on relegation

Published

on

Sam Parkin believes that the Huddersfield Town vs Birmingham City game on April 27 is going to be important in the relegation struggle this season.

The bottom of the Championship table is fairly surprising with just three games to go, with only Rotherham already relegated at this stage of the campaign.

Championship Table (As it stands April 18th)
Team P GD Pts
17 Blackburn Rovers 43 -14 49
18 Plymouth Argyle 43 -8 48
19 QPR 43 -17 47
20 Stoke City 43 -19 47
21 Birmingham City 43 -16 45
22 Huddersfield Town 43 -23 44
23 Sheffield Wednesday 43 -31 44
24 Rotherham United (R) 43 -53 23

It should be a thrilling and stressful finish to the campaign because there are probably seven teams that are worried about the remaining two berths.

Birmingham is currently only one point and one spot above the drop zone, while Sheffield Wednesday, Huddersfield, and Birmingham are currently in the bottom three.

Next up is Birmingham City vs. Huddersfield.

While every game matters, one in particular appears to have the potential to be pivotal: Birmingham’s nine-day trip to Yorkshire to play the Terriers.

Naturally, both teams’ immediate priorities are their matches this weekend against Rotherham United and Swansea City, but analyst Parkinson revealed on the “What the EFL!?” podcast that he is already anticipating what might be a huge matchup between the two struggling teams.

“Brumby against Huddersfield next week could very well be the biggest game,” he stated. That may probably determine a lot. This weekend, Birmingham should defeat Rotherham at home, and Huddersfield should defeat Swansea at home. It would also be acceptable if you could choose a game at random.

The match between Birmingham and Huddersfield is right around the corner, and it has the potential to decide one of the relegation spots.

Birmingham and Huddersfield want to score fifty points.

Supporters all throughout the nation have been speculating on what point total will be necessary to remain in the Championship, and we won’t find out until the very end.

We arranged the 24 Championship teams according to their yearly salary expenditures.

However, many believe that 50 points should be about enough to survive, in which case Birmingham and Huddersfield’s task is very obvious: they need to win two games.

One cannot undervalue the significance of this matchup because, of course, if either team wins one of those games against the other, it puts them in a very tough position to stay up.

Furthermore, the person who wins will probably know going into the last day that their fate is in their own hands, which is what you want.

First of all, as Parkin notes, they have games this weekend that they can win, and collecting three points on Saturday must be everyone’s sole concern. The focus can then shift to April 27.

Other clubs may yet fail.

This weekend’s victories by Birmingham and Huddersfield will encourage other teams to play, and even if a three- or four-point deficit now seems excessive, it may close over the course of 90 minutes.

Now that Millwall is secure, Blackburn and Plymouth are still very much in the running, and both QPR and Stoke will know they still have work to do. It would take a lot for them to lose.

Thus, the next few weeks should be interesting, and any games involving teams that are in danger of relegation will undoubtedly carry more weight.
