Both sides have endured contrasting campaigns, with the hosts currently scrambling for points at the bottom end of the league standings.
Huddersfield Town were sent crashing back down to earth last Saturday when they fell to a 5-3 loss against Southampton at the St. Mary’s Stadium.
This followed a thrilling 4-0 victory over Sheffield Wednesday on February 3 which saw their six-match winless run across all competitions come to an end.
With 31 points from 31 matches, Huddersfield Town are currently 21st in the Championship table, just two points above the relegation zone.
Sunderland, on the other hand, continued their push for a playoff spot last weekend when they picked up a 3-1 victory over Plymouth Argyle at the Stadium of Light.
Having stumbled into the new year, the Black Cats have turned a corner in recent weeks, picking up seven points from their last three matches since a 1-0 loss to Hull City on January 19.
With 47 points from 31 matches, Sunderland are currently seventh in the league standings, level on points with sixth-placed Coventry City in the final playoff spot.
