Despite the defeat, the Bees are still well placed in the Championship table, and if they can get on a run over the busy festive period they will put themselves back in the mix for a play-off spot.

Huddersfield are down in 19th, only three points above the drop zone, but they beat relegation rivals Rotherham in a morale boosting victory on Tuesday night, will be hoping to pick up another result here.

Form wise, the Terriers have won two of their last four games, beating Rotherham and Birmingham, while Brentford have won one, drawn two and lost their last game against Cardiff.

Here are THREE things we think you should look out for in the match.

1) Huddersfield’s away form

Huddersfield Town have not got a good away record and they won just twice in games away from the John Smiths’ Stadium this season.

Away from home they seem to struggle both ends of the pitch, scoring only nine goals and conceding 16 on their travels this season.

If the club are to avoid dropping down to League One this season, then they are going to have to significantly improve their away form.

2) John Swift

The England Under-21 international, who is on loan from London neighbours Chelsea, will play his last game for the club against Huddersfield, although with his impressive displays, he could return in January.

Swift has impressed since joining from the English Champions, scoring three goals in 11 games and showing maturity in the middle of the park.

Huddersfield’s leaky defence will have trouble keeping this talented youngster quiet for the whole game.

3) Brentford Promotion Credentials

New Brentford Head Coach Dean Smith left Walsall claiming that the Bees matched his ambition to reach the Premier League.

Well after a disappointing defeat the club need to bounce back and show they have what it takes to really mount a challenge for a play-off place.

Beating lower placed teams, and responding to a defeat, shows what type of character they possess in the dressing room and three points is a must if they want to keep in contention with the other play-off hopefuls.
