The Bluebirds picked up a first win in four with a convincing victory over Luton Town, while Huddersfield saw off Middlesbrough 3-2 to end their five-game wait for maximum points.
Town enter this game one point and one place better off in the table, but they have failed to beat Cardiff in any of their last 13 encounters in all competitions.
Neil Harris was open about the fact that his job was on the line heading into Saturday's home meeting with Luton, who arrived in the Welsh capital with a formidable away record.
The pressure had been building on Harris and it looked like last week's 1-0 loss to strugglers Coventry City may well put the wheels in motion for his dismissal.
However, Cardiff produced arguably their best display of the ex-Millwall manager's tenure against the Hatters for just a second win in nine league games.
Opponents Huddersfield also enter this game in good spirits, though, as they edged out Boro in an eventful game at the John Smith's Stadium last time out.
The victory was Huddersfield's first in a month, a run that had seen them collect just two points from a possible 15.
Boss Carlos Corberan praised the character showed by his side and the Terriers are now seeking back-to-back victories for just the second time this season.
On the most recent occasion they achieved that feat, they beat Swansea City 2-1 at the Liberty Stadium in mid-October.
However, not since 1989-90 have Huddersfield won away to both Swansea and Cardiff in the same season, so they will need to put that right if they are to build some momentum.

Harris marked his first league start for Cardiff with a goal and may well retain his place in attacking midfield against Huddersfield.
Will Vaulks is another who made the most of his recall to the side, while Ojo - the third of the changes made by Harris last time out - will also be hopeful of retaining his spot.
Koroma returned to the side against Middlesbrough and scored a vital goal, while Richard Stearman did well in the absence of Schindler, who is out with concussion.
Danny Ward has yet to get off the mark since joining Huddersfield from Cardiff in the summer, though his first start is unlikely to come on Tuesday night.
Cardiff City possible starting lineup:
Smithies; Bacuna, Morrison, Nelson, Bennett; Wilson, Ralls, Harris, Vaulks, Ojo; Moore
Huddersfield Town possible starting lineup:
Schofield; Bacuna, Stearman, Sarr, Toffolo; Eiting, Hogg, O'Brien; Mbenza, Campbell, Koroma
We say: Cardiff City 1-1 Huddersfield Town
Huddersfield have lost seven of their last eight away games against Cardiff, most recently going down 2-1 in the Welsh capital in August 2019.
Indeed, City's run of 12 league matches unbeaten against Town is bettered only by their runs against Halifax Town and Leeds United (both 16 games).
The visitors drew their most recent away outing and, given both sides' results overall this term, we can see this one finishing all square.
