The Bluebirds have won just one of their last five Premier League fixtures and so Neil Warnock's men come into this weekend's round of fixtures just two points ahead of the bottom three.
However, before back-to-back home defeats against Manchester United and Tottenham respectively, Cardiff had chalked up three successive league wins on their own patch and SportPesa go 5/4 (2.25) that they bag a vital victory here.
The Terriers have lost their last nine matches and are rock bottom, eight points adrift of safety. David Wagner's men are a 5/2 (3.50) chance to stop the rot with a win in Wales and it is 43/20 (3.15) that these teams settle for a share of the spoils.
Cardiff made seven changes for the defeat against Gillingham, but Warnock's men should return to full strength. Junior Hoilett is amongst those hopeful of coming back into the starting line-up after being named as a substitute for that FA Cup loss.
Tommy Smith, Aaron Mooy, Abdelhamid Sabiri and Danny Williams remain out for the Terriers.
Goals at a premium?
Huddersfield have scored just 13 league goals this term - significantly fewer than any other team in the top tier - and SportPesa go 7/5 (2.40) that the Terriers draw a blank against the Bluebirds.
The same firm offer just 10/19 (1.53) that there are fewer than three goals in the game.
Having managed just two wins from 23 matches this term, confidence in the Huddersfield camp is surely low.
Cardiff, for all their troubles, could be well-placed to capitalise, for Warnock's men have won 13 of their 18 Premier League points on their own patch.
SportPesa's 5/4 (2.25) quote for the Bluebirds to chalk up a crucial home victory, then, could represent excellent value ahead of Saturday's showdown.
