While the Welsh side have put together a nine-match unbeaten streak in the second tier, their opponents have failed to win any of their last eight league fixtures.
Steve Cooper would have been relatively disappointed with how his Swansea players matched up against Nottingham Forest in midweek, particularly due to having defeated the same opponents 5-1 in the FA Cup a few weeks ago.
However, getting another three points on the board was all that mattered, and Connor Roberts's late goal has kept the Swans in the hunt for the title.
Swansea remain as many people's outsiders with Cooper's team having been the least productive in attack of the teams in the top six.
Nevertheless, Wednesday night's clean sheet was Swansea's 16th of the season, a remarkable effort when having to contend with a more condensed schedule than usual.
Despite putting together a contrasting run of form in comparison to Huddersfield, Cooper will be the first to stress that the Terriers cannot be regarded as easy touches.
Carlos Corberan's team have scored in five consecutive games, although they failed to build on netting early goals against Stoke City, Wycombe Wanderers and Middlesbrough.
Letting slip a two-goal advantage against bottom-of-the-table outfit Wycombe could have long-term ramifications with Huddersfield now regarded as contenders for relegation.
While they still hold a five-point cushion over the chasing pack, Corberan is aware that his position in the dugout will be in doubt unless he can move his team away from the bottom three.
Isaac Mbenza has scored in successive outings for the first time this season, ending a period of 10 outings without finding the back of the net, but his evening was cut short against Middlesbrough due to injury.

Despite the contrasting form of the two clubs, we still expect a competitive encounter at the John Smith's Stadium. Nevertheless, the visitors know what it takes to get over the line when required, a trait that we think they will show in the closing stages.
