Can Huddersfield Town make it three league wins on the bounce?

That is the question on everyone's lips ahead of Saturday, and it is Fulham who stand in the way.

Here's everything you need to know about the game at a glance...

Kick off

Saturday 16 January, John Smith's Stadium, 3pm

Referee

Christopher Sarginson

Team news - Scannell and Woodrow to miss out

Huddersfield Town

David Wagner will be without the services of winger Sean Scannell who is recovering from a niggly knee injury.

Dean Whitehead is back in training although this clash with Fulham is likely to be too soon for the midfielder to return to action, with Tuesday night's FA Cup replay against Reading a more realistic goal.

Emyr Huws has recovered from illness and should start alongside Jonathan Hogg, with Wagner hopeful he will be able to last longer than 60 minutes.

Fulham

Cauley Woodrow has fractured a metatarsal leaving the way clear for Moussa Dembele to partner Ross McCormack up front.

Scott Parker could be in line for a first start under new manager Slavisa Jokanovic.

In the managers' words

David Wagner urged players and fans to forget about Tuesday's magnificent victory against Charlton ahead of a new challenge.

He said: “We cannot compare what happened on Tuesday with what will happen on Saturday. It’s a new game against a new opponent and we have a new idea of what they will do against us. We just find solutions against them. It is very important that we focus.

“On Tuesday the key moments went in our direction in the right moments and if this happens on Saturday as well, we will have a very good opportunity to beat them. This is our target.

Slavisa Jokanovic praised Huddersfield's recent form under David Wagner, but believes his players arrive full of confidence they can get a result.

He declared: “Huddersfield is a good team, a team who want to play the football, who start from the back and build up.

“With a new coach it’s a little bit different to how they played last season. They made a fantastic result [a 5-0 win on Tuesday] against Charlton.

“It’s the Championship, easy games don’t exist and I’m not expecting anything to be easy for us, but we’ll arrive with confidence that we can do what we need to win the game."

The Last Time

No surprise to see Nahki Wells on the scoresheet when the two sides last met in August - he linked up with Harry Bunn to give Town the lead just after the hour mark.

However, there was a late sting in the tale when Cauley Woodrow hit a 95th minute equalsier to deny the Terriers a first victory against Fulham since 1993.
