Expect a very competitive West Yorkshire derby with both Huddersfield and Leeds winning in midweek and maintaining their hopes of still securing automatic promotion from the Championship.

Huddersfield claimed a third successive competitive victory at the John Smith’s Stadium on Thursday evening when beating Championship leaders Brighton 3-1, and they scored all three goals during the first half. The Terriers are now unbeaten on home soil since the beginning of December and can be backed at 2.15 to win this derby fixture. Having won 1-0 at Elland Road in the reverse fixture back in early September, odds of 6.00 are also available for Huddersfield to win this contest via a 1-0 scoreline.

Aaron Mooy netted the only goal for Huddersfield that day and he is priced at 3.75 to feature on Sunday’s score sheet whereas Nahki Wells has completed the scoring in four games for the Terriers since the beginning of December and is offered at 6.00 to be Last Goalscorer.

Within the same time period Elias Kachunga has been First Goalscorer in two Huddersfield victories besides netting in the midweek win, and the German is priced at 5.50 to score the opening goal in this contest plus 4.00 to net in a home triumph. Recent loan signing Izzy Brown is available at 3.75 to net his third goal for the team.

Ahead of their visit to Huddersfield, Leeds maintained hopes of securing automatic promotion from the Championship by claiming a very late winner when beating Blackburn 2-1 at Ewood Park in midweek to clinch their fourth league victory of 2017. Although the Whites have won just twice on the road in league action since the beginning of December, odds of 3.60 are available for the team to win this derby game but with no clean sheets registered on the road in ten previous competitive outings, a Leeds victory with both teams scoring is offered at 8.00.

Despite failing to find the net in midweek at Blackburn, Chris Wood has scored in four games for Leeds this year besides open the scoring on three occasions, and he is available at 5.50 for becoming First Goalscorer plus 4.00 to net in an away victory.

With Pontus Jansson scoring in two of the previous three away games for Leeds, odds of 10.00 are being offered for the Swede to be a goalscorer in this match whereas Stuart Dallas can be backed at 5.00 to score a goal after netting in the latest two competitive away victories for Leeds.

Huddersfield netted more than twice in a league match for the first time this season on Thursday evening, and they are quoted at 2.50 to score 2 or more goals for the sixth time in a league match since the onset of December. The Terriers are also available at 3.50 to win the game via one clear goal with Leeds priced at 4.50 for the reverse result. Any team securing a two-goal winning margin is offered at 4.33 whereas with two in-form teams, a Yes for Both Teams To Score can be backed at 1.73.

Other Available Bets:

A draw is 3.10.
A score draw is 4.50.
A 0-0 draw is 7.50.
Nahki Wells netting first in 2-0 and 2-1 victories for Huddersfield are both 31.00.
Chris Wood scoring first in 1-0 and 2-1 wins for Leeds is 26.00 and 41.00 respectively.
