Despite their promising position in the table, Town head into this clash on the back of three defeats in their previous four outings in the Championship.
Last time out, Carlos Corberan’s team suffered a 1-0 defeat at Swansea City. The game saw Huddersfield fail to score for a second straight league match, which has become a familiar trend for the Terriers in recent seasons.
The team from Yorkshire have an inconsistent league record at the John Smiths Stadium. However, a record of two wins from their previous 11 league matches on home soil is not a great one.
Their recent league games on home soil have also been relatively low-scoring, with eight of their last 11 home matches producing under 2.5 goals.
Blackburn Rovers will head into this encounter in confident mood after mounting a five-game unbeaten in the Championship. Tony Mowbray’s team has been hard to beat of late, as they have lost just one of their previous 12 matches in the second tier.
Last time out Rovers hammered Cardiff 5-1 at Ewood Park. Chilean international Ben Brereton scored a hat-trick in the defeat of the Welsh side to take his goal tally for the season in the Championship to seven.

The team from Lancashire have been relatively prolific of late in the second tier scoring at least two goals in three of their last four Championship outings.
PlusBet.net predicts that this game is too tight to call and will end in a goalless stalemate.
