Huddersfield flew out of the traps and were top of the table in the early weeks, but recent results have somewhat tempered the early season optimism that was sweeping West Yorkshire.

David Wagner's side have won one and lost four of their last six games, a run which has seen them drop out of the automatic promotion places. The Terriers do still sit in the play-off positions, but will start this match out of the top six if the three teams directly below them win on Saturday.

Wigan are scrapping at the other end of the Championship table. The Latics are looking to avoid an immediate return to League One, but they remain winless under new manager Mike Joyce and go into the weekend sat second bottom.

The Key Battle - Aaron Mooy vs Max Power

The midfield battle will be key at the John Smith's Stadium, and Manchester City loanee Mooy has been a standout performer for the hosts so far this season.

Power was integral in Wigan's promotion last season and has missed just one match of this campaign. His drive and desire will be crucial if the Latics are to come away with a positive result.

Last Meeting:

A late Conor Coady goal gave Huddersfield all three points last time these two sides met, with Town running out 1-0 winners in January 2015.

Wigan have never won a league fixture away at Huddersfield, though they did win 4-1 at the John Smith's Stadium on their way to FA Cup success in 2013.
