Match preview: Brentford v Huddersfield Town

Boss Lee Clark wants Huddersfield Town to forget about the lure of Wembley and maintain their automatic promotion push with a League One victory at Brentford tomorrow (3pm).

Town are one step away from a trip to London having booked their place in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy northern area final with a 2-0 success at Tranmere on Tuesday.

The Terriers will take on Carlisle in the two-legged final in the new year but, while delighted with Town's progress, Clark knows league matters come first.

Huddersfield currently sit third in the League One table after last weekend's victory against table-toppers Brighton and Clark wants full concentration on tomorrow's trip to Griffin Park as they look to overhaul Sheffield Wednesday for a place in the top two.

"We've taken the Johnstone's Paint Trophy very seriously so far and at the moment it's paying off," said Clark. "Now we need to forget about this competition and re-focus on the league and our next game against Brentford.

"We will prepare the players thoroughly and make sure we're ready for what will be a tough encounter."

Tomorrow's hosts Brentford sit 10th in the table but are also in a rich

vein of form having won their last three league games and having booked their place in the JP Trophy southern area final with a victory on penalties against Charlton on Tuesday night.

Town have been rocked by the news that midfielder Damien Johnson will be out for between six to nine months having suffered anterior cruciate ligament damage during the 2-1 win over Brighton at the weekend.
