With the win in last round Huddersfield gained the seventh consecutive match without defeats after that changed trainer.
Guests will play at home of second on table Preston, but hosts seems not so brilliant lately with only three wins - two against weak Blackburn and barnslet, last one against Charlton thanks to a penalty - in last seven.
For home team topscorer Johnston ( 8g) is doubtful, Moult ( att.2 1g) and Harrop ( midf.5+3 3g) remain out and key midf. Pearson 8 14 1g) is suspended. Potts ( midf.3+6) and Nugent ( att.2+1) in doubt, too.
Huddersfield could have teh return of Kongolo ( def.8), while suspended Hogg ( midf.15) is the only important miss, otehr players out have few or no minutes in the season.
As last week i see Huddersfield better then odds say in this moment, plus hosts seems not at their best and with some problems.
Also if Preston is the best home team, undefeated with only nine goals suffered at home, Huddersfield could be able to gain at least a draw.
