Huddersfield Town boss Lee Clark admits 1-0 will do as the Terriers look to continue their League One promotion push with victory at home to Brentford.

Town have scored 52 goals in 26 League One games this term – the highest in the division – but only edged out visiting Oldham Athletic by a single goal at the Galpharm last weekend.

However, Clark says he will take 1-0 successes as the third-placed Terriers aim to keep the pressure on top two Charlton and Sheffield United with victory against the Bees.

“I’ve said to the players that championship-winning teams win a lot of games 1-0,” explained Clark.

“It is good that we have stopped leaking goals, because we will always create them. We are not giving much away.”

Clark could also be boosted by the return of Damien Johnson and Calum Woods tomorrow – the pair are nearing a comeback from hamstring and ankle injuries.

Longer-term absentees Scott Arfield and Alex Smithies are also close to full fitness.

Town, who are now unbeaten in six, are currently three points adrift of the second-placed Blades who visit leaders Charlton tomorrow.

Town’s opponents Brentford lie eighth – just four points off the play-off places.
