Huddersfield Town have won just once in their last five games but are still eight points off the bottom three.
A win could take them into the top half should a number of results go their way, although unlikely, but the hosts will be happy as long as they don’t make it two defeats in as many games.
QPR are a point and place behind Huddersfield, having also won just once in the past five outings.
This is set to be a tight affair but an important encounter for each team's respective season aspirations.

The historical records are neck-and-neck, both winning 13 games apiece and drawing nine fixtures.
