Undefeated since November, Huddersfield are making their presence known within the promotion play offs spot.

The Terriers scored two late goals against Premier League side Burnley last weekend away from home to proceed to the fourth round of the FA Cup. In terms of the league, they competed in a goalless draw against Blackburn on the road.

Dropping points twice through draws in their last five league games the team sits sixth in the league table, eight points behind the automatic promotion spot.

The Swans in their most recent league fixture suffered a 1-4 defeat away from home at the hands of Nottingham Forest.

This was their third consecutive loss in the league and as a result, they now occupy 17th position in the league table, eight points clear of relegation.

They took top-flight club Southampton to extra time in the FA Cup but ended up losing the tie 2-3 away from home despite having a one man advantage since the 29th minute.
