The first of two crucial fixtures in three days means team selection will be crucial for David Wagner on Boxing Day.
Preston North End - who bring more than a couple of familiar faces - are the visitors to the John Smith's Stadium, and with just four points separating them in 16th from Town in 19th, three points would be welcome for more reasons than a festive treat.
The Christmas fixture crunch is likely to mean some rotation, and Philip Billing and Elliott Ward could make a welcome return from the treatment room.
Town will check on Emyr Huws and Jonathan Hogg before the fixture, but Dean Whitehead is a long term absentee.
So who would you start? Nahki Wells or Ishmael Miller? Joel Lynch or Martin Crainie? Duane Holmes or Kyle Dempsey?
