Sean Dyche's side have not lost a league match since August, but their recent run of form has allowed Leicester City and Queens Park Rangers to draw level on points.
Huddersfield's Championship campaign got off to a bright start before their good form fizzled out and they plummeted into the lower reaches of the division.
However, a 2-1 victory at Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday last weekend moved them up to 14th, just six points off the playoff positions.
Huddersfield completed a league double over Burnley last season, coming out 2-0 winners at home and 1-0 victors away.
Possible starting lineups
Huddersfield: Smithies; Richards, Dixon, Lynch, Gerrard; Southern, Hammill, Norwood, Scannell; Stead, Ward
Burnley: Heaton, Trippier, Mee, Shackell, Duff, Arfield, Marney, Jones, Kightly, Vokes, Ings
Sports Mole says: 1-2
