Huddersfield Town host Burnley this weekend as both teams attempt to pick up points in the Championship table.

Huddersfield Town will be searching for three points when they take on Burnley on home turf this weekend.

Terriers boss Simon Grayson, who replaced sacked Lee Clark before the end of last season, relinquished two points in a 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest on Tuesday.

Burnley will be keen to improve on their recent 3-2 defeat to Middlesbrough after sitting on a half-time score of 1-1.

Huddersfield are likely to start with Jordan Rhodes, who scored 40 goals for the Terriers last season, and saved their blushes by equalising for his side earlier this week.

Meanwhile, Burnley boss Eddie Howe could give Marvin Bartley a starting position this weekend, with Sam Vokes losing his place after being substituted after 59 minutes on Tuesday evening.

Huddersfield Town: Smithies; Dixon, P Clarke, Hunt, Lynch; Norwood, Clayton, Southern, Scannell; Novak, Rhodes

Burnley: Grant; Trippier, Shackell, Edgar, Mills; McCann, Wallace, Marney, Stanislas, Bartley; Austin

Sports Mole says: 1-0
