‘Great pressing’, ‘Screamer’ – Plenty of Huddersfield Town fans react as Terriers lead vs Brentford
Huddersfield Town have had a somewhat inconsistent 2020/21 campaign when it comes to the Sky Bet Championship.
The Terriers sit 17th in the Sky Bet Championship table and do so courtesy of a 1-0 half-time lead in West London over a dangerous Brentford side.
That slender lead nudges the Terriers to 45 points – 10 clear of the relegation drop zone and is a move towards Championship safety.
Huddersfield Town show class in taking early lead
It was the pressing of a determined Huddersfield Town side that led to their early lead, Lewis O’Brien (7′) profiting from the Terriers press and some Brentford indecision.
Town pressured Brentford right-back Mads Roerslev whose hurried pass inside to a teammate was hunted down by two Huddersfield players. That harrying led to Brentford losing the ball, a hasty scramble back from the edge of his area by David Raya and O’Brien’s shot from 25 yeards out.
David Raya has gone walkabout…! 👣

Raya’s scurrying left him wrong-footed and O’Brien’s precisely placed shot found the bottom left of the Brentford stopper’s goal.

Good half town! Keep going in the 2nd half 👏 Great finish by Lewis O'Brien to score for us! If we can keep this lead it'll be a huge 3 points UTT 🔵⚪🔵⚪ #htafc

Big warning signs for Town in the last 5 mins there. Brentford coming into it. Nice to have a dodgy ref on our side for the first time in what seems like forever. Now make the most of it and hold on! #htafc

We need a different formation for the second half. We're getting caught out in areas we are normally good at #htafc

Second half will be difficult viewing 😬 #htafc

It's fair to say that LUCK has been a Town fan so far. Phew. #htafc 😅
