Who has said what about the game?
Manager David Wagner is relishing the encounter and insisted he will make no specific plans to stop hot Spur Harry Kane.
“I have no individual plans to stop an individual player of Tottenham Hotspur’s - that makes no sense from my point of view,” the Terriers boss said to the media before the encounter.
“If you think too much about an individual - their name, their quality - maybe you start to get scared by them!
“Our aim is to make sure we can pull them down to our level.”
Visiting boss Mauricio Pochettino is expecting a tough test from Town: “I think they will be very motivated to play us and have had the whole week to prepare for the game.”
“We will find a very energetic team, so athletic.”
Any team news?
Record signing Steve Mounié’s heel injury is taking longer than expected but he could be in line for a return to action against Swansea City after the international break.
Meanwhile, Spurs will be without Moussa Dembele, Danny Rose, Victor Wanyama and the suspended Serge Aurier, but Christian Eriksen is back after illness.
Tell me about Tottenham Hotspur
Spurs come into tomorrow’s game on the back of a comfortable 3-0 win over Cypriot side Apoel Nicosia in the Champions League on Tuesday.
It has been an imposing start to the season for the North London side, with their only defeat in six coming against Chelsea at Wembley.
Pochettino’s side continue to excel away from home, having won their first three away league games for the first time since 1990-91.
League Head to Head Record
This is Tottenham’s first ever visit to the John Smith’s Stadium but their previous trips to West Yorkshire have not tended to be happy ones.
Granted, you have to back a fair way in the history books but Town have only lost two of their 17 top-flight home games against tomorrow’s opponents.
The last meeting of the two sides came in a League Cup second round tie in 1972-73, with goals from Alan Gilzean and Martin Chivers handing Spurs a 2-1 win.
