Following two seasons fighting at the wrong end of the Championship, Huddersfield are now bidding to make a return to the Premier League three years after relegation.
The Terriers are currently on an eight-match unbeaten streak in all competitions and have not lost in their last five games away from home.
Carlos Corberan’s side had to settle for a 1-1 draw against Swansea City last weekend as Danel Sinani’s early opener was cancelled out by Flynn Downes.
The West Yorkshire outfit eased to a 4-0 victory over Reading earlier in the campaign, which was their first win over the Royals in their last five meetings.
Reading are in a state of disarray and look in severe danger of relegation; although they are three points above 22nd-placed Peterborough United, they have played two more games than Posh.
The Royals have won just two of their last 15 matches in all competitions and have suffered four consecutive losses – including a humiliating FA Cup exit against sixth tier Kidderminster Harriers and a 7-0 thrashing at the hands of Fulham.
Their latest defeat came on Wednesday night as Luton Town barely broke a sweat in a comfortable 2-0 win in Berkshire.
Veljko Paunovic’s side are winless in their last eight matches at the Select Car Leasing Stadium, while no Championship side has conceded more goals at home this season than Reading (27).
Reports suggest that the Serbian will remain in charge for the rest of the campaign, but fan resentment is growing as the Royals’ terrible form continues
