Huddersfield host Reading in the Championship on Monday.

Huddersfield Town host Reading at the John Smith's Stadium on Monday (May 8) in the final round of the Championship.

The hosts endured a grossly underwhelming campaign but have pulled off a remarkable escape under veteran manager Neil Warnock. The Terriers guaranteed safety on Thursday with a 1-0 win over Premier League-bound Sheffield United, thanks to a Daniel Ward winner just before the hour mark.

Huddersfield are 18th in the league with 50 points. With safety guaranteed, the Terriers will look to close out the season with a win in front of their fans.

Reading, meanwhile, have endured a disastrous second half of the season, getting relegated to the third ier following the Terriers' win. They drew 1-1 against last-placed Wigan Athletic in their last game, falling behind at the 81st minute before Yakou Meite scored a close-range equaliser late on.
