My beloved Brentford are in a strange run at present, collecting one point from three home starts, dominating one ( which they could have won by 5-6 goals !) and being comprehensively outplayed in the other two, yet winning four in a row on the road !

This weekend they look to get the home "hoodoo" off their back, when Huddersfield Town come calling. The Terriers have not tasted defeat in the league for an incredible 35 matches, they last lost at Southampton on December 28th 2010 and it would be typical of my club, that they would choose this game to suddenly "turn it on" at Griffin Park, the "theatre of sleepless nights".

Town have won 19 ( drawn 16) in this run, that averages out to 96 points over a full season, a total which would have seen them promoted in any season and as champions in each of the last six seasons, going back to 2004-5 when Luton Town ( whatever happened to them ?) came within a whisker of breaking the magical 100 point barrier.

Having lost out in the playoff final last season, to miss out this time round is going to be very hard to take and I have to say that they deserve promotion, but I wonder how they will react when they finally do lose one ! Hopefully we will find out after this weekend !

Good Luck.
