With both sides looking for a first championship win of the season, City of Huddersfield and Preston North End will appear in West Yorkshire on Tuesday evening.
The visitors are one of only two teams to have lost their first two championship games this season while their opponents failed to beat Derby County on matchday one and then at the wrong end of a 5-1 beating at the hands of Fulham.
Prediction for this match
Still under the direction of Carlos Corberan, Huddersfield Town kicks off this season with the overall goal of avoiding relegation, although they hope for a more comfortable ending after last season got worryingly close to a fight for survival.
Despite seemingly moving away from the bottom three in the second half of last season, the Terriers ended up in 20th place by the end of the campaign, just six points ahead of the bottom three.
While they were never at great risk of relegation and only slipped into the bottom five when it was too late to fill the gap, this should be a wake-up call for Corberan, who hasn’t seen his system thrive since leaving Roll under Marcelo Bielsa in Leeds to become Huddersfield’s head coach.
The start of the season didn’t go according to plan either, as they put down a somewhat disappointing 1-1 draw with an exhausted Derby County squad Naby Sarra equalized after half-time Curtis Davies had advanced the Rams.
The West Yorkshire team then hosted Fulham, which was looking for promotion, and they got off to the worst start when Ryan Schofieldhis worn-out step was blocked Aleksandar Mitrovic into the terrier’s net, before Josh Onomah doubled their advantage and Fabio Carvalho restored the two-goal lead immediately after the break Matty Pearson had given the Terriers hope with a hit in the 41st minute.
ON Harry Wilson Red card gave Corberan’s men a chance, however Ivan Cavaleiro immediately dashed those hopes with one goal and then scored a second to seal a 5-1 win at the Terriers’ home ground.
The Spaniard will now demand a reaction from his side as he faces another team that had a difficult start to the league season.
After the permanent employment of Frankie McAvoy As a coach, Preston North End may have been optimistic this season but they got off to a bad start and suffered a whipping from Hull City.
Emil Riis Jakobsen gave them an early head start, but it went downhill quickly since Keane Lewis-Potter hit an equalizer and Richie Smallwood put the guests in the lead, at late gates from Josh Magennis and Andy cannon sealed an emphatic victory for the newly ascended Tigers.
After confidently beating fourth division Mansfield Town in the EFL Cup, Preston hoped to bounce back against Reading last time, but instead they received their second consecutive championship defeat.
Femi Azeez put the hosts in the lead in the first half, and during Daniel Johnson was able to equalize after an hour from the penalty spot, the Royals only needed eight minutes to regain the lead John Swift, and they thought it was a close victory.
Having already lost to two teams expected to compete for similar positions with Preston, McAvoy will be desperate for his team to collect their first points on the board on Tuesday as they try to stay off the bottom of the board Division stuck.

Amid ongoing connections outside the club, Lewis O’Brien is unlikely to stay in the Huddersfield Town squad, forcing Corberan to play without one of his strongest players.
However, they still have an accomplished midfield, with Jonathan Hogg Offer solidity and experience and Duane Holmes a dangerous player on the ball.
The Spanish coach should stick with the back three of Matty Pearson, Naby Sarr and Chelsea loanee players Levi Colwill, despite the beating last time.
Jordan Rhodes will probably give a start-up front on the side Josh Koroma to heighten the attacking threat posed by the terriers.
Preston will do without a goalkeeper Declan Ruddwho suffered an injury in the loss to Hull, ie Daniel Iversen continues between the sticks.
New signings in the summer Isaiah Brown and Matthew Olosunde will also be absent as they continue to recover from injuries.
Alan Browne, Daniel Johnson and Ryan Ledson Bring lots of quality to the engine room, potentially the most powerful area for McEvoy.
Huddersfield Town possible starting line-up:
Schofield; Pearson, Sarr, Colwill; Turton, Holmes, Hogg, High, Thomas; Koroma, Rhodes
Preston North End possible starting line-up:
Iversen; Floor, Lindsay, Hughes; Van Den Berg, Brown, Ledson, Johnson, Cunningham; Jakobsen, Evans
Probability: Huddersfield Town 1-1 Preston North End
Both sides come into the game in bad shape and we don’t see either side taking control of the game for an important win.
Instead, we opt for a low-score tie as teams continue to fight on both ends of the pitch.
