As things stand, the Terriers are in 20th place with two games to go and eight points clear of the relegation zone, but Rotherham United, should they win their game in hand could slash the gap down and ensure a nervy end to the season for Huddersfield fans.
Fellow Yorkshire side Sheffield Wednesday are also in the relegation mix, and could potentially end their season with a winner-takes-all showdown against Derby County against Pride Park, as both sides look to beat the drop.
Meanwhile, towards the top of the table, Valerien Ismael’s Barnsley have booked their spot in the play-offs with two games to spare, and will now be looking to finish as high as they can in the table and, ideally, avoid a semi-final clash against Brentford - who are arguably the strongest side in the four over the Tykes, Swansea and Bournemouth.
Here are today's biggest transfer stories and the latest team news involving Huddersfield Town Barnsley and a number of other sides from Yorkshire and beyond, as the reaction to the build-up to the weekend's action continues:
