Not since February 2017, when David Wagner was driving Huddersfield towards promotion, have the Terriers won three league matches in succession.
After a 5-1 defeat to Fulham a fortnight ago, it looked unlikely they would achieve that feat anytime soon, with many pundits tipping Carlos Corberan’s men to struggle again this season following a 20th-place finish last term.
Nevertheless, victories over Preston North End and Sheffield United have turned their form around, with Chelsea loanee Levi Colwill scoring a 94th-minute winner to beat the Blades 2-1 at Bramall Lane last weekend.
Meanwhile, the Terriers were a touch unlucky to be knocked out of the EFL Cup by Everton in midweek as they had the better of the possession and chances against the Premier League outfit.
However, Huddersfield have only won one of their last nine home matches, while Reading have been victorious on their last two trips to the John Smith’s Stadium.
Wins have been hard to come by for the Royals of late though, as they have registered just two victories in their last 15 Championship outings.

Veljko Paunovic’s men have only three points so far this season, winning one and losing three of their opening four matches.
Their latest defeat – 2-1 against Coventry City last weekend – was the biggest sucker punch as Matty Godden netted the winner in the eighth minute of stoppage time.
Reading have conceded the most goals in the Championship at this early stage (nine) and the pressure is building on Paunovic, who is also having to deal with transfer restrictions imposed by the EFL.
