Judging recent form, the Cherries are the best team in the competition – as they are the only squad in the Championship to have won their last four games. They are scoring goals at an impressive rate, and are defending well too.
In fact, only two other teams have outscored them this season in the tournament, while only three have conceded fewer goals than them. As of now, they are in possession of the sixth spot with a lead of three points over the seventh-placed Reading, and they also have a match in hand. Their obvious objective is to secure a top-six finish, in order to qualify for the playoffs.
Meanwhile, the Terriers are one of the weakest in the competition. They are winless in their last four matches in the Championship, and are also placed 19th in a table of 24. They are not however under the immediate threat of the relegation cut-off since they have a safety cushion of eight points.
Going on, they have a worrying h2h record against this rival over the years, and they also have conceded the second-most number of goals this season in the Championship. By the looks of things, expect Bournemouth to deliver a winning performance this Tuesday at the Kirklees Stadium.
