Huddersfield Town will hope to show their league-long superiority over the best of the rest in the Championship this season and earn promotion back to the top flight - but they still have to come through two big tests to do so.

A semi-final second leg is first in line, with the Terriers set to host Luton Town on Monday night with the tie finely poised at 1-1 following Friday’s encounter.

Huddersfield finished third in the regular season, three places and seven points clear of tonight’s rivals, but the pressure of the play-offs has often had a surprising effect on teams who expect to progress to Wembley.

The winner will head to the national stadium to face Sheffield United or Nottingham Forest, with the other semi second leg played on Tuesday.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the game.

When is Huddersfield vs Luton?
