Huddersfield Town are set to play host to Swansea City at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday for their latest EFL Championship fixture.

Huddersfield Town come into this game on the back of a 2-1 loss to ten-man Middlesbrough yesterday at the Riverside Stadium. Goals from winger Duncan Watmore and striker Ashley Fletcher sealed the deal for Neil Warnock's Middlesbrough, who had Northern Ireland international Paddy McNair sent off in the second-half. Forward Isaac Mbenza scored the consolation goal for Huddersfield Town.

Swansea City, on the other hand, beat Chris Hughton's Nottingham Forest 1-0 yesterday at the Liberty Stadium. A late second-half goal from Welsh right-back Connor Roberts ensured victory for Steve Cooper's Swansea City.
