Huddersfield beat Cardiff on their last visit to their stadium

Huddersfield Town host Cardiff City at the John Smith's Stadium in the EFL Championship on Saturday, looking to pick up just their second win of the season.

With four points from eight games, the Terriers are languishing second from the bottom in the league standings, with only Coventry City accruing fewer points than them (2).

Their only victory of the season thus far was against Stoke City in a late 3-1 win on matchday three, collecting just one more point since then.

Cardiff, meanwhile, ended their run of five winless games with a thrilling 3-2 victory over Middlesbrough, who nearly pulled off an epic comeback.

The Bluebirds raced to a 3-0 lead inside the opening half but Boro fought back midway through the second period to cut their lead to just one goal.
