A lot has changed since both the teams played against each other back in November when Aaron Mooy inspired the Terriers to a win at the Molineux.

Their performance since have seen Huddersfield sacking their manager David Wagner and appointing Jon Stewart in his place. It's almost 15 games since the Terriers won all 3 points but incidentally, their last Premier League win came against Wolves.

Wolves are flying high in the Premier League at the moment with 40 points and sitting 8th on the table tied on points with Watford. Nuno Espirito Santos and his men are on an 8 match unbeaten streak and will be looking to continue their winning streak.

The first encounter between the sides ended in a 2-0 victory for Huddersfield at the Molineux.
