Huddersfield prepare to entertain Port Vale at Galpharm Stadium on Wednesday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Terriers are clearly on top, winning 52.63% of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Galpharm Stadium was just last season, in December 2004, the Terriers carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a League One match.
