The Terriers return to home soil and face one of their toughest tests this season as Karl Robinson's promotion chasing MK Dons roll into Town; Kick off at 3pm.
Huddersfield currently sit second in the npower leage 1 table, six points ahead of the Dons.
It is thanks to the Dons that Town remained in second after they held Sheffield Wednesday in mid-week, a result that only really favoured Town, Sheff Utd & Charlton.
The Dons despite that credible point have not won in over a month of league 1 action.
'Karl (Robinson) has done a terrific job at MK Dons - I like him a lot,' said Lee. 'He is a good manager who has got a good guy next to him in John Gorman - who in my opinion make one of the best management teams in the League. They play some of the best football in the League and it will be a very tough test. We are looking forward to it and are relishing the test.
'The fans are going to be incredibly important for us from now until the end of the season. Our general performances over the last couple of games haven't been quite there but we have managed to grind out results and I believe a lot of that is down to the fans. They have stuck by us and helped us get the results.'
Kallum Higginbotham is set for a debut after joining from Falkirk.
Alex Smithies is pressing for a start.
Danny Ward & Alan Lee have shaken off injuries.
Calum Woods is available again after an ankle injury
Peter Clarke is rumoured to be absent due to a double hernia (unconfirmed)
Gary Roberts is also absent following a hernia operation.
Scott Arfield could also be back in contention after missing out through injury in recent weeks.
Sean Morrison could be set to get his full home debut.
I expect Kallum to start the game - watch him get the winning goal/assist.
Top Scorer: Charlie MacDonald - 9
Most Assists: Dean Bowditch - 12
James Tavernier could be in line to make his MK Dons debut.
Alan Smith is expected to feature.
Adam Chicksen (head Stitches) Is expected to be available.
Paul Slane (back unavaliable)
Mathias Kouo-Doumbe returns to contention following suspension.
Midfielder Darren Potter is fit again after recovering from illness
Signed on loan from Premier League Newcastle, the former Manchester United & Leeds player is bound to be roundly booed all game.
Last meeting: npower League 1, Saturday 17 September 2011: MK Dons 1-1 Huddersfield Town (Scott Arfield)
The head to head record between the teams currently stands at ten victories for each team and seven draws.
Despite that, recent history would suggest that Town go into the game as favourites with the Dons failing to win a game in their last six attempts. The Terriers have won four of the games with the other two ending in 1-1 draws.
The official appointed for Saturdays match at the Galpharm is Graham Salisbury, supported by linesmen Peter Gooch and Matthew Parry and the Fourth Official who is Adrian Holmes. Salisbury last took charge of a Dons match on 25th October 2011 when the Dons were defeated 2-1 away to Sheffield United. On that occasion he blew for 26 fouls, issued 5 yellow cards and a red card. Born in Lancashire, Salisbury was promoted to the referees` list in 2001. he also Officiated on the FA Vase Final in 2001 and he also enjoys reading, running and keeping fit. The 44 year-old started refereeing in 1985, and progressed through the West Lancashire and Northern Premier Leagues to reach National List status in 1998.
Huddersfield 2-1 MK Dons.
