Ryan Lowe‘s side only needed a single strike from Cameron Archer to secure a 1-0 win against Hull City on Saturday, keeping their second consecutive clean sheet.
Being one of the few teams in the Championship who have already completed 30 fixtures this season, the majority of the teams around Preston have games in hand, meaning that the Lilywhites must keep winning to avoid being leapfrogged by any sides below them or losing ground on the top six.
After three of their last four matches came away from home, Preston will be glad to be back at Deepdale on Wednesday, having only lost twice on their own patch this season, currently on a five-game unbeaten run on home soil.
Lowe’s side have conceded more goals than all of the teams above them, highlighting the importance of their recent back-to-back clean sheets, but keeping Huddersfield out will be a tricky test this week.
Josh Murphy, who is on loan to Preston from Cardiff City, has not featured since October and he will remain absent from the squad on Wednesday, but is nearing a return from his ankle injury.
Midfielder Isaiah Brown has not yet had the opportunity to play for the Lilywhites since joining the club from Chelsea in the summer, and he is unlikely to face his former club on this week, but could return from injury later this month.
The home team are likely to operate in their usual 3-4-1-2 formation, with Aston Villa loanee Archer looking to continue his good start to life in a Preston shirt, alongside Ched Evans up front.
Huddersfield’s Faustino Anjorin, who is on loan from Chelsea, will not feature for his new club until next month as he continues to recover from a broken ankle.
Alex Vallejo, Levi Colwill and Ronaldo Aarons could all make their returns from injury this month, but Wednesday’s outing will have come too soon for the trio to play their part.
Right-back Pipa was forced off after just 30 minutes last time out in the FA Cup, meaning that Oliver Turton could come back into the starting lineup this week.
