Three defeats in the last four league games have severely dented the side's automatic promotion hopes with cementing a Play-Off place now the side's main objective.
However, David Wagner will be buoyed by Town's recent home record against Preston North End – winning three of the last four.
Meanwhile, Preston North End centre-back Alex Baptiste starts a three-match ban but joint top-scorer Jordan Hugill is set to return after concussion kept him out against Leeds United .

90+6 Minutes: Wow! Where to start!! After the free-kick was cleared play was stopped after Elias Kachunga was floored in the penalty area...The referee awarded a penalty with Hugill booked for the foul.
After a long delay, Aaron Mooy stepped up to take the penalty but it was well saved by Chris Maxwell but Collin Quaner was the quickest to react to the rebound to fire home.

In The Book
58 Minutes: Just to prove my earlier point about a scrappy affair - Town’s Chris Lowe and PNE’s Ben Pearson are both booked for an off the ball incident after Lowe fouled Barkhuizen.
55 Minutes: Some of the crowd are on their feet as Mooy slips Kachunga into the box but the forward’s shot hits the side netting...
Town are having the best of the opening exchanges this half but the game is starting to become a bit scrappy as Preston look to stamp a physical approach on proceedings.
After the usual half-time pitchside antics the second-half is underway at the John Smith’s Stadium.
HT: Huddersfield Town 1 Preston North End 1
The referee blows for half-time and justice has been done with Town’s late equaliser after dominating the opening 45 minutes but coming unstuck from Aiden McGeady’s 23rd minute wonder strike.
At least four minutes to be played at the end of this half - mainly for the two injuries and substitutions....
