All you need to know ahead of our next Sky Bet Championship fixture

- Preston North End vs Huddersfield Town
- Boxing Day fixture
- 3pm kick-off available to watch and listen to on iFollow HTAFC

Huddersfield Town travel to Deepdale in the Sky Bet Championship on Monday 26 December when we take on Preston North End, 3pm kick-off.

The Terriers go into this game looking to get back to winning ways after they were defeated at home by Watford on Saturday 17 December.

Preston also come into this game hoping to bounce back after they were beaten by Queens Park Rangers at Deepdale, also on Saturday 17 December.


This is the third time the Lilywhites will face our Terriers this season, after a Carabao Cup game earlier this season as well as the reverse fixture of this Sky Bet Championship game. Preston have won both games so far and will be looking to continue this run.

After being appointed manager of Preston in December 2021, Ryan Lowe’s side currently sit seventh in the Sky Bet Championship table, on the same number of points as QPR who are sixth.

Since then, the 19-year-old has claimed the most assists in for the Lilywhites so far this season – making 4 assists in his 18 appearances.
