Huddersfield Town prepare to entertain Oldham Athletic at Galpharm Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Terriers are clearly on top, having won 12 and lost only 3 of the 22 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Galpharm Stadium was less than a year ago, in February 2011, when they played out a goalless draw in a League One match.
