The Terriers have not won in the league since November 10 but they were victorious in dispatching Charlton Athletic in the previous round of the FA Cup.
Huddersfield sacked manager Simon Grayson on Thursday after the club were soundly beaten 4-0 by Watford last weekend, and they are expected to make changes to their starting lineup, with Keith Southern and Lee Novak likely to come into the starting lineup.
Pearson will also be hoping that the Foxes can repeat the result between these sides on New Year's Day, when Leicester secured a comprehensive 6-1 win over the Yorkshire side.
Huddersfield Town: DDLWDL
Leicester City: DWWWWW
Possible starting lineups:
Huddersfield Town: Smithies; Woods, Dixon, P.Clarke, Gerrard; Hunt, Southern, Danns, Scannell; Novak, Beckford
Leicester City: Schmeichel; De Laet, Konchesky, Morgan, M.Keane; Drinkwater, Marshall, James, Knockaert; Nugent, Wood
