Bournemouth missed the chance to take top spot in midweek after only managing a goalless draw with Swansea City on Tuesday night.
They are in an automatic promotion spot, though, and a win this weekend, coupled with a Norwich City loss, would see them go into pole position.
Meanwhile, Huddersfield Town claimed a useful 2-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday to move into the top half of the Championship table in midweek.
Another victory would see the Terriers make it three wins in as many games and surely help them to jump up into an even healthier position than 12th.
Bournemouth vs Huddersfield Town Head-to-head
Bournemouth have lost just once to Huddersfield in their last seven matches and have not lost to them on home soil since 2007.
In the seven games at the Vitality Stadium since then, five of those ended in a Cherries win.
This will be their first Championship meeting since February 2015 having played each other four times during their Premier League days.
Overall, Bournemouth have beaten Huddersfield on 16 occasions but have lost on 19 occasions, drawing 18 times.

The same can be said for striker Josh King, who also missed the Cherries’ last outing. He also faces a late fitness test.
