Team News: Huddersfield
Christopher Schindler (Knee Injury) and Carel Eiting (Knee Injury) will not be able to play for H'field boss Carlos Corberán.
Team News: Brentford
With a completely injury-free group available to choose from, Brentford boss Thomas Frank has zero fitness concerns at all coming into this game.
We’re thinking that Huddersfield will need to apply a lot of pressure to hit the back of the net against this Brentford side who we think should be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
We’re therefore anticipating a 0-1 winning margin for Brentford at full-time.
Hopefully it’s a good one.
