The Terriers are enjoying a good run of form at the moment, and have lost just one of their last five outings in the Championship, winning three of their last four.

Carlos Corberan’s men picked up a solid 2-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday in midweek, and moved up to 12th in the table as a result, just six points off the play-off places.

For their part, Bournemouth have had a mixed time of late, winning just one of their last four matches.

The Cherries were held to a goalless draw against fellow promotion contenders Swansea City on Tuesday evening, but are still in an automatic promotion spot, and could move level on points with league leaders Norwich City with a win on Saturday.

Unfortunately for Huddersfield, Prutton believes that Jason Tindall’s side will have too much for their visitors on the south coast.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, he said: “Bournemouth have dazzled at times this season, but in other games haven't quite got the results you would have imagined they are capable of. They have only one win in four, but a draw at Swansea is a decent result for any side - which is what they got on Tuesday.

“Huddersfield are in decent shape. Three wins in four and scoring plenty of goals. This is an awfully long trip for them down to the south coast and they will give it a good go, but I just think Bournemouth will have too much for them.”

Prutton predicts a 2-1 Bournemouth win.
