Match Preview: Brentford vs Huddersfield Town

All the info ahead of tomorrow's Griffin Park encounter

1 November 2019

The Sky Bet Championship's two most in-form teams go head to head at Griffin Park tomorrow. Danny Cowley's Terriers will be seeking a seventh game unbeaten while we look for a fourth straight league win. Get all the info ahead of the game below.

MATCH FACTS

  • This is the first league meeting between us since March 2017, when the Terriers won 1-0 at Griffin Park.
  • The past nine league meetings have produced 41 goals at an average of 4.6 per game.
  • We are looking to win four consecutive Championship matches for the first time since October 2015.
  • Huddersfield Town have won 12 points from their past six league matches (W3 D3 L0) - one more than they'd won in their previous 35 league games (W2 D5 L28).
  • Ollie Watkins has scored 10 league goals this season - the same number he scored in both the 2017-18 and 2018-19 campaigns for the Bees.
  • Since his debut in February, Karlan Grant has been involved in 14 league goals for Huddersfield (12 goals, 2 assists) - nine more than any other Terriers player.

THE OPPOSITION

They say losing, like winning, can become a habit. Unfortunately for Huddersfield Town, it's a habit they have become all too accustomed to since the start of 2018. 

Before their recent six-game unbeaten run, The Terriers had won just six league games since December 2017, dropping out of the Premier League with a whimper last term under Jan Siewert. Siewert was unable to arrest the slump this term, taking just one point from the opening three league games before his sacking.

Following five more consecutive defeats, the first three under interim boss Mark Hudson and the latter two under the Cowley brothers, Danny and Nicky, the Huddersfield ship began to turn in late September. They picked up a point at home to Millwall before beating Stoke City and Hull City to record back-to-back wins for the first time since August 2017. Five more points over the past three matches have lifted The Terriers out of the relegation zone.

Having appeared to shake off the losing habit, Terriers fans will be hopeful their side can rediscover the winning habit that saw them romp to promotion when they were last in the second tier. 

THE MANAGER

Danny Cowley took his first managerial role with Concord Rangers aged 29, after a non-league playing career was cut short by injury. His seven years in charge saw three promotions, from the Essex Senior League to the National League South, and a visit to the First Round Proper of the FA Cup. 

In the summer of 2015, Cowley and his brother Nicky, who had been his assistant at The Beach Boys, joined Braintree Town, leading them to the National League Play-Offs 12 months later. The pair were on the move again that summer, this time to Lincoln City. It was at Sincil Bank that they began to hit the national conscience.

Their first season in charge ended with promotion back into the EFL and a run to the Quarter-Final of the FA Cup, becoming the first non-league side to reach the last eight in more than a century. The following campaign, Lincoln won the EFL Trophy at Wembley, as well as reaching the Play-Offs, before earning promotion to League One as Champions last term. 

When he departed, Danny had a 53 per cent win record as Lincoln boss, the best in The Imps 127-year history.  

TEAM NEWS

It is as was for The Bees with long-term absentees Sergi Canos and Nikos Karelis the only players absent for tomorrow's game. 

For Huddersfield, Terence Kongolo remains sidelined but Alex Pritchard, among others, have recovered from a stomach bug that swept through the camp last week.

Match Reports

Match Report: Brentford 0 Huddersfield Town 1

Grant strike enough for Terriers to defeat Bees at home

2 November 2019

Brentford were beaten 1-0 by Huddersfield Town after a tight encounter between two evenly matched sides at Griffin Park on Saturday 2 November.

The only goal came in the second half, a low strike from Karlan Grant after an hour was all that could separate the two teams.

Going in, The Bees were unchanged from their 3-1 win over Queens Park Rangers on Monday night, as were visitors Huddersfield after their own victory over Barnsley last weekend. The first half was a mixed one for the home side as the rain came down in West London, chances at both ends but no goals.

The first real chance came after six minutes, Christian Norgaard shooting over from the edge of the box after receiving a lay-off from Josh Dasilva.

With 10 minutes gone, Said Benrahma escaped two markers on the left to play in Rico Henry. The fullback's cross was almost met by Ollie Watkins but Jaden Brown nodded clear.

On 20 minutes, Tommy Elphick seemed incredibly fortunate to get away without a yellow card when he stopped Watkins racing through the middle of the park. Instead, referee Robert Jones gave the Town defender a stern talking to.

Four minutes later, Watkins was this time penalised for hand-ball in the box. Despite getting his shot away after a through ball from Benrahma, Mr Jones decided the ball had looped up onto his hand in the build-up.

David Raya was forced into a good save on 28 minutes, Frazier Campbell finding space inside the box to shoot low. The keeper got a strong left hand to it and pushed it beyond his left post.

With only five minutes to the break, Norgaard was left on the floor as The Terriers countered. Danny Simpson, one-time Premier League champion with Leicester City, swung in a cross but Pontus Jansson was there to nod it over his own crossbar.

With the visitors growing into the game, they could've opened the scoring just moments later. After the corner was cleared, it was drilled back across the face of goal. Karlan Grant swept it back across the six-yard box at the far post but there was Kamohelo Mokotjo to calmly knock the ball away from danger.

The half-time whistle blew with neither side able to break the deadlock. At the start of the second period, neither side opted for changes. 

Benrahma had the best opening chance in the second 45. Getting space on the edge of the box, he whipped a shot just past the right post of Liverpool loanee Kamil Grabara, the goalkeeper rooted to the spot.

With 50 gone, Benrahma then played a quick one-two with Watkins before shooting with power at goal. Grabara was able to get his body behind it and held on as Mbeumo lurked for cast-offs.

After 57 minutes, Brentford created their best chance of the afternoon. A deep cross from Henrik Dalsgaard found Julian Jeanvier, who headed it low towards goal. Grabara was down quickly to palm it around the post.

Then, 61 minutes in, Huddersfield scored. Karlan Grant dribbled inside from the left, escaped Dalsgaard - caught between two Town players to mark - and drove the ball low into the bottom right corner.

A double change on 69 minute inspired a push from The Bees, sub Joel Valencia immediately providing a cross that nearly reached Watkins. Valencia then recycled the play to find Mbeumo, who dinked his cross into the box, Grabara reacting quickly to punch it away from Watkins' head.

Town could have doubled their lead after 83 minutes, the ball pulled back into the box by Diakhaby only to be cleared away by Norgaard. Moments later, Diakhaby was in himself, only to clip a low shot narrowly wide of Raya's right post.

In the second minute of six added on at the end, Benrahma was brought down mid-air by Elphick, who was then booked. The following free-kick from the Algerian was sent over the crossbar from 30 yards out.

A minute later, Benrahma forced a save from Grabara as he took aim from a bizarre angle. Shaping to cross, he went for the near post and the Polish keeper had to scramble back to punch the effort away.

With 60 seconds to play, Dalsgaard found Benrahma on the edge of the box but the shot that followed fizzed wide of the post.
