The Live Sky Sports HD camera's are in Town as The Terriers entertain The Bee's at The Galpharm Stadium.
All of the hype pre-game has been about Jordan Rhodes in the media, with sky set to have another feature piece on the Scotland International pre-match.
Town go into the game hoping for a repeat of the result from the last time the two sides faced each other at Griffin Park - The Terriers ran out comfortable 4-0 victors on that occasion.
Town are boosted by good news on the injury front with Oscar Gobern, Calum Woods & Damien Johnson all available for the game.
Brentford on the other hand will be looking to set the record straight as they aim to avenge that heavy defeat earlier in the season in front of their own fans.
The Bee's have risen up the league one table under Uwe Rosler and currently sit in 8th position.
Their away form is not too shabby either winning & drawing 5 games and losing just twice.
It's all set up to be another cracker, as all affairs between these two sides seem to be!
'It will be a very difficult test. They have got a fantastic away record and are big powerful team who are very well organised,'
'The League is still very open. There a number of teams who are in the race for automatic promotion and a number who are fighting for the Play-Off places - with Brentford being one of those teams. The League is very competitive and teams have achieved fantastic points returns at the moment.
'If one of those teams in the top six lose their consistency there are plenty of teams around them who can string wins together and move up the League. My attentions and those of the players are fully focused on Huddersfield Town and making sure that we can keep up our consistency.'
Our performance at Griffin Park was up there with one of our best away performances of the season to date. This year we have had some brilliant performances away from home, scored lots of goals and won a lot of points. We would like to replicate our display down there at home - but it is easy said than done. At the end of the day getting the win is the main priority.
'Everything we did on that day at Griffin Park was of the highest quality. We stood up and battled with Brentford for half an hour and then when we were allowed to play we got the ball down and created a lot of chances. Alan Lee and Jordan Rhodes started the game and after Alan had worked them for an hour Lee Novak came on and gave them problems.'
Oscar Gobern is fit after last weeks clash of heads that forced him off before half time.
Calum Woods (ankle) and Damien Johnson (Hamstring) also return to the squad following a few weeks on the sidelines.
Scott Arfield is not expected to be fit with next weekend a more realistic target.
Alex Smithies continues his comeback from injury but is some way from being ready for the 1st team.
Back in-front of the SKY TV camera's, last time he scored 5! All eyes will be on the prolific frontman
'Keeper Richard Lee has been passed fit and is expected to return at the expense of Simon Moore.
Karleigh Osborne (dead-leg) is not expected to be fit for the game
Skipper Kevin O'Connor (foot) Is also on the comback trail but is not expected to feature.
He has scored 21 goals for Brentford since he signed; nine of them have come this season, which has helped the club up to eighth in the league.
