Huddersfield Town are set to play host to Brentford at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday for their latest EFL Championship game.

Huddersfield Town come into this game on the back of a 1-1 draw against Darren Moore's Sheffield Wednesday at the Hillsborough Stadium. A first-half goal from forward Josh Windass for Sheffield Wednesday was cancelled out by a second-half own goal from Scotland international Callum Paterson for Huddersfield Town.

Brentford, on the other hand, drew 1-1 against Chris Hughton's Nottingham Forest at the Brentford Community Stadium. A first-half penalty from star striker Ivan Toney for Brentford was cancelled out by a second-half goal from Croatian midfielder Filip Krovinovic for Nottingham Forest.

Huddersfield Town vs Brentford Prediction

Huddersfield Town are currently 18th in the EFL Championship table, and have won only one of their last five league games. The Terriers recently announced the signings of forwards Oumar Niasse and Yaya Sanogo, and the two could prove to be crucial.

Brentford, on the other hand, are 4th in the league table, seven points behind 2nd placed Watford. The Bees have been inconsistent recently, despite having arguably the best player in the league this season in the form of Ivan Toney.

Brentford should have enough to emerge victorious, despite their subdued performances of late.

Prediction: Huddersfield Town 1-2 Brentford
