Carlos Corberan‘s side got back to winning ways last time out after consecutive 1-1 draws at the beginning of December, coming away from Ashton Gate with a 3-2 win under their belt.
Duane Holmes, Danel Sinani and Danny Ward all netted either side of half time against Bristol City and that was the first time in 10 outings that Huddersfield had managed to score more than one goal in a single match.
The Terriers will be looking to take advantage of some of the games that have been postponed due to coronavirus, as they can leapfrog Stoke City and Coventry City, who both do not play on Boxing Day.
Huddersfield have only lost one game on home soil in their last seven matches at the John Smith’s Stadium, while Blackpool are winless in their last three away matches, suggesting that form is on the Terriers’ side.
Alex Vallejo, Pipa and Jonathan Hogg will all continue to be absent from Huddersfield’s squad due to injury, with the trio expected to make their return to action in the early part of the new year.
Striker Ward has netted six times in the Championship this season, and has scored in his last two consecutive games, meaning that the 30-year-old should be full of confidence to get on the scoresheet this weekend.
After getting back to winning ways last time out, Corberan may want to field the same team that started against Bristol City, meaning that Scott High and Lewis O’Brien continue in the middle of the pitch for the hosts.
Blackpool have a whole host of players unavailable due to injury, including Grant Ward, Kevin Stewart, Luke Garbutt, Matty Virtue and Oliver Casey, who are all expected to return next month.
Right-back Jordan Gabriel came back into the side against Peterborough, and he could retain his place in the back four alongside Marvin Ekpiteta, James Husband and Reece James.
Yates would have been delighted to get on the scoresheet last time out after coming off the bench, as it was his first goal since returning from injury, but he is still likely to start on the substitutes’ bench, with Shane Lavery leading the line from the first whistle.
