After all, Swansea are nine points ahead of Huddersfield in the standings and unbeaten in their last five duels with them. However, Swansea have pretty much secured their place in the Championship for next season, while Huddersfield have a long way to go to achieve this, so they will have a stronger motive in this duel.

Three of the last five duels between Huddersfield and Swansea have ended in draws, while the Welsh outfit have won twice. Meanwhile, it's Huddersfield with the better record overall—19-13-10.

Huddersfield preview: Trying to avoid relegation

At the moment, Huddersfield are in the relegation zone. However, they are just one point behind the first team outside of it and pretty close to a few other teams. So, Huddersfield still have a chance to avoid relegation, but their recent form doesn't exude optimism since they've only managed to win once in the last nine rounds in the league.

Meanwhile, Jonathan Hogg, Radinio Balker, Yuta Nakayama, and Josh Ruffels are out with injuries, while Kian Harratt is suspended ahead of this match.

Swansea preview: Chilling in the middle of the standings

While Swansea theoretically haven't yet secured their place in the Championship for the next season, they are currently nine points ahead of the first team in the relegation zone, their upcoming opponent, Huddersfield. Given that only five games remain to be played in the season, it's safe to say that the Swans don't have to worry about relegation.

When it comes to team news, Przemyslaw Placheta, Joe Allen, Kyle Naughton, Harrison Ashby, and Josh Ginnelly will miss the next game through injuries.

Predicted Lineup: Rushworth – Key, Cabango, Darling, Tymon – Fulton, Grimes – Ronald, Cooper, Paterson – Lowe

Player to watch: Michal Helik

The Polish centre-back has the quality and ability to impact the game on both sides of the pitch, and we've seen that already this season in the Championship, where Helik has scored nine goals already.

Can Helik score his first goal ever against Swansea?

Despite having a great season, especially with that impressive goalscoring record, Helik didn't have much success against Swansea. He still hasn't scored against them and has failed to beat them in eight games he played against the Welsh outfit. Can he turn thing around now?
