Our match prediction:
Huddersfield Town failed to impress in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign, but they secured the survival and nothing else matters. The Terries are on the same quest this season and they will be looking to kick off the 2016/2017 campaign with a win over Brentford at their John Smith’s Stadium. The Bees were producing fine displays last season, but they eventually finished the 2015/2016 Championship campaign in ninth place in the standings. Brentford will definitely stick to their attacking style of play in Saturday’s football match against Huddersfield and we predict that the visitors are going to pick up all three points from the game. The Terries have been struggling in front of goal in recent friendly games and, taking everything into account, they are unlikely to grab something from the opening game of the season. A man to watch in the away side will be Lasse Vibe, who scored 14 goals last season.
Highligted Player (Tommy Smith):
Tommy Smith is an English player who was born in Warrington on 14 April, 1992. The defender plays for Huddersfield Town, but he used to play for the likes of Manchester City and Tranmere Rovers during his youth career as well. His main position is right back and it is no surprise he has yet to score for the Terriers, speaking of league games. The defender, though, found scored his first goal for the Terries in the 5-2 FA Cup loss to Reading on 19 January, 2016. Tommy Smith made his Huddersfield Town debut on 31 August, 2013 in a 2-1 loss to Barnsley and he has been playing for the John Smith’s Stadium outfit ever since. He has been struggling with injuries during his professional career and on 31 January, 2015 he was airlifted to hospital with head trauma following a colliding with Joe Murphy, the Huddersfield Town shoot-stopper. Tommy Smith has yet to play for the England national team.
Highlighted Team (Brentford):
Based in London, Brentford compete in the Championship and they were founded in 1898. Griffin Park has been the home ground of the club since 1904 and the capacity of the venue is 12,300. The Bees have yet to play in the Premier League and it has to be noted that they made it to the FA Cup sixth round on four occasions (1937/1938, 1945/1946,1948/1949, 1988/1989). Brentford played in the League Cup round 4 in the 1982/1983 and 2010/2011 season and that is the club’s biggest success in the competition. Brentford’s main rivals are Fulham and Queens Park Rangers and they take on each other in the West London Derby. The rivalry with the Cottagers is probably the biggest and you should bear in mind that the clashes between the two teams have always been marred by crowd violence. The colour of Brenftord’s shirts is red and white and they wear black shorts.
