Huddersfield Town managed to survive relegation in the Championship last time around and will be hoping to avoid a similar scare again this year.
There was a point last season where Huddersfield Town looked destined for relegation. However, the arrival of Neil Warnock sparked something in the Terriers’ squad and they were able to finish quite comfortably in 18th.
Warnock is staying on as Huddersfield Town boss this season and that only helps their chances. The experienced boss is a safe pair of hands, but it still won’t be an easy job.
Here, some of our writers predict how Huddersfield Town will fare in the 2023/24 Championship campaign…
“I was convinced Huddersfield Town were facing the drop before Warnock’s appointment, but the 74-year-old boss just has that something about him that players buy into and they never looked in danger from the moment he arrived.
“The Terriers haven’t been that active in the summer window so far and whilst they’ll likely make further additions later down the line the signs are pointing towards Warnock having a very tough task ahead of him this year. In fact, their most important signing of the summer will undoubtedly be keeping Warnock on at the helm.
“Huddersfield Town must ensure a better start to proceedings this time around to avoid playing catch up, but with the second tier competition looking stronger than ever Warnock’s side will inevitably have hurdles to overcome throughout the new season.
“I do think Huddersfield Town will stay up, but that is simply due to the form they showed under Warnock last season. This one could go either way, but I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt on this occasion.”
Prediction: Surviving relegation
“Huddersfield will be looking to preserve their Championship status for another season and as long as Neil Warnock is in charge, I can see them being successful in their bid to do so. I can’t see them pushing too far up the table though, so they could still be in the fight to stay up.
“I can see it being more comfortable than it was last season though. There will be tough moments where nerves and doubts start to creep in but I can see them ending up a relatively safe distance away from the drop zone this season.
“Around 18th is where I can see the Terriers ending up, but they could be looking over their shoulder for a good chunk of the season still.”
Prediction: Bottom half
