What Trueform says for Huddersfield vs Brighton
Huddersfield’s Trueform chart does not look too good but we reckon they have had limited chances to shine of late and believe they could be a value bet to return to winning ways against Brighton.
Three of Town’s four straight defeats have come away from home, while the other was a narrow loss to Manchester City here, when playing better than the bare rating suggests.
Looking further back, the Terriers edged out West Brom at this venue and there was also a memorable defeat of Manchester United just off our graphic.
A Look At Huddersfield Town’s Betting Odds
Huddersfield have failed to score in their last seven Premier League away games after a 2-0 defeat at Everton, with just one point picked up from those fixtures.
However, they have earned 11 points on home turf, with only runaway leaders City and last season’s runners-up Tottenham prevailing at John Smith’s Stadium.
Manager David Wagner is convinced his players will bounce back at home against Brighton and prove the doubters wrong.
He said: “This is one of the qualities this group of players has shown in the last two years.
“I don’t know how often this group was written off in the past and they always came back – and this is the case now as well.
“If you ask me about four defeats and what happened, I understand the question, but the players have shown in the past that this is nothing.”
Town produced one of their best performances of last season when beating the Seagulls 3-1 here in the Championship and appeal at 4/5 in the ‘draw no bet’ market for our Huddersfield vs Brighton betting tips.

Brighton had put together a solid run of results before losing at home to Liverpool, but Chris Hughton admitted his side was left shell-shocked by that 5-1 drubbing in front of their own fans.
“I thought they were very good and gave us a harsh lesson, but we were also below the levels we have set this season,” said the manager.
The Seagulls had previously tasted defeat at Manchester United and had to battle hard for a goalless draw in the grudge match with Crystal Palace, so a small squad has been stretched.
