Birmingham City will try to keep their unbeaten record going when they play Huddersfield Town in the Championship on Friday night.
The day before Blues drew a scoreless draw at Luton Town, the Terriers were outplayed in a tight loss to Burnley.

Tips and Prediction
Danny Schofield, Huddersfield’s new head coach, would have hoped to see his squad show they are capable of making another run for the top six after they just missed joining the Premier League last season.
The club that came so close to winning under Carlos Corberan appeared to be a shell of Yorkshire as Burnley triumphed at the John Smith’s Stadium. The increased familiarity inside his own ranks has shown to be of no use, therefore Schofield will be worried about failing to frighten opponents who were full of new players.
On the plus side, the season is still young, and Schofield will hope that a few more additions can act as a catalyst for better outcomes over the coming weeks.
In terms of Birmingham, they played Luton, who lost to Huddersfield in the previous season’s Championship playoff semifinals. Since Luton had an easier summer than Birmingham, who had a hectic period behind the scenes, it was predicted that Luton would win handily at Kenilworth Road.
Blues, on the other hand, displayed excellent defensive play and earned the victory, which will be viewed as an added bonus given that John Eustace only recently walked through the St. Andrew’s arrival door.
Although John Ruddy and Dion Sanderson, who is now on loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers, seem to be important additions in the defense, Eustace will ultimately expect for greater firepower from his seasoned front three.
Huddersfield won 2-0 on the road in the most recent match between the two teams, which occurred last season.
If the season’s first weekend is any indicator, none of these sides will score many goals this year. In the long run, that might change, but for the time being, the only outcome that looks likely is a scoreless draw, which would not be favorable to either team at this early stage.
