Huddersfield Town are going up against a stubborn Cardiff City side at the John Smith's Stadium on Sunday lunch time as both sides complete their Championship regular season fixture list.

Town face former boss Neil Warnock in a game that will finally reveal to Town fans which team they will be facing in the play-offs.

Warnock will do his best to ruin Town's party as he looks to cap off a brilliant season with the Welsh club, guiding them away from the relegation zone and into mid-table safety.

Town don't have a good record when facing the Welsh side, only picking up two points against them since the club has been back in the Championship.
