Recent respective form guides

Brentford have only collected 1 win and 3 draws from the last six home games played. While Bees have scored 5, a worringly large 8 have been leaked at the other end.

Huddersfield's away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occasions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The games have constituted a decent return of 10 goals for the Terriers, and 4 goals against.

Brentford's 28 points from 19 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 10th position. Huddersfield are just outside the promotion places, in 3rd, having taken 32 points from 19 games.
