Having suffered three defeats in four matches, Bristol travel to Yorkshire having fallen three points off the playoff places.
Bristol City have made a habit of putting together winning and losing streaks under Lee Johnson, and the Robins boss will hope that another negative run is not on the horizon after Saturday's heavy defeat to West Bromwich Albion.
While Bristol have faced the top two clubs in the division in successive matches, the manner of the setbacks will concern Johnson, especially after they almost let slip a three-goal lead against Derby County in their previous outing.
On a positive note, the inconsistencies of the teams around them mean that Bristol remain just four points adrift of third place, despite now sitting three points adrift of the playoffs.
Although improving on a run of nine goals being conceded in four matches will take priority, Johnson's side have now gone 222 minutes without finding the back of the net.
When also taking into consideration that they have only netted more than one goal in a match since January 14, Bristol will need to make improvements all over the pitch in order to have a chance of keeping their promotion hopes alive.
As far as Huddersfield are concerned, Danny Cowley knows that there is a lot of work ahead as the Terriers bid to avoid a second successive relegation.
While a return of eight points from seven outings is not disastrous, the form of the clubs around them has resulted in Huddersfield remaining above the drop zone by just two points.
Cowley was frustrated with his side conceding two late goals at Swansea City at the weekend, strikes which came after Steve Mounie had extended his recent good form with a 78th-minute equaliser.
However, with three of their next four matches taking place at the John Smith's Stadium, Huddersfield have a window of opportunity to get more points on the board as they bid to open up some breathing space ahead of the bottom three.

Bristol City Championship form: WWLWLL
After being dropped to the substitutes' bench at the weekend, Emile Smith Rowe and Mounie are expected to return to the Huddersfield starting lineup.
Benfica loanee Chris Willock will also hope to make his first start after four outings as a late replacement since his January arrival.
Huddersfield Town possible starting lineup:
Lossl; Simpson, Stearman, Schindler, Toffolo; Chalobah, Hogg; Willock, Smith Rowe, Bacuna; Mounie
Bristol City possible starting lineup:
Bentley; Hunt, Benkovic, Baker, Dasilva; Nagy, Henriksen; Eliasson, Palmer, O'Dowda; Diedhiou
We say: Huddersfield Town 1-2 Bristol City
Both teams are under pressure for contrasting reasons heading into this contest. In what could prove to be a nervy affair, we feel that Bristol will show more ambition in the final third, an approach which could pay off by the full-time whistle.
