The defender was left on the bench in midweek as he was struggling with a slight Achilles problem and the Terriers were thrashed 6-1 by Nottingham Forest.
Boss Mark Robins will hope Gerrard's return to the side will help shore up the defence as he takes charge of his first home league game since replacing Simon Grayson at the John Smith's Stadium.
Robins has no other new injury problems ahead of his side's important fixture.
Huddersfield go into the game just one point behind their opponents, but only two points above the relegation zone.
Town remain without long-term absentees Jermaine Beckford (hamstring), Keith Southern (Achilles) and Danny Ward (broken metatarsal).
