Barnsley got their first point under new manager Poya Asbaghi in a drab 0-0 draw against fellow strugglers Peterborough United last weekend.
It gives them a platform to build on going forward, but Asbaghi’s biggest task will be to start getting wins on the board – the Tykes still only have two victories to their name this season and have lost 10 of their last 12 matches.
Scoring is also a major problem. Barnsley have netted just once in their last four games and have recorded only 13 goals across the campaign, the lowest tally in the Championship.
Both of their wins this season have come on home turf, which may give the Oakwell faithful a glimmer of hope.
The Tykes have also won their last three encounters against Huddersfield, with centre-back Michal Helik scoring twice in 2-1 victory in this fixture at Oakwell last season.
Barnsley will hope to have Callum Brittain and Aaron Leya Iseka back available again after the pair missed the draw with Peterborough through injury and illness respectively.
Leya Iseka is one of only two players in the Tykes squad – along with Cauley Woodrow – to score more than twice this season, so his return would be a huge boost as the team look to score their first goal under Asbaghi.
Jordan Williams was forced off through injury late on against Posh so will be assessed ahead of the weekend.
Huddersfield centre-back Matty Pearson had to be substituted due to injury in the first half of the Terriers’ defeat to Middlesbrough last weekend, meaning that he is a doubt for the trip to Oakwell.
Levi Colwill should earn a recall – either in place of Pearson or Naby Sarr – after being rested against Boro.

Josh Koroma and Fraizer Campbell will also be pushing for starts, with Carlos Corberan potentially giving his under-performing attack a shakeup.
