TOWN aim to climb out of the relegation zone for the first time since November at Brentford tonight (7.45) with manager Mick Wadsworth urging his eager players to be "greedy" for points.
Buoyed by Saturday's fine derby victory at Barnsley, Wadsworth recalls Adie Moses after suspension for the trip to Griffin Park, where he will take the place of a 'bruised and battered' Nathan Clarke.
Clarke made only his second start of the season at Oakwell, where he played a splendid part in a first League double of the season, but he was not on the team bus which left West Yorkshire for West London at lunchtime.
One man who was, however, was leading scorer Martin Smith, who has recovered from a sore back and hamstring, trained without problem yesterday and will lead the attack against Wally Downes' mid-table side.
Goalkeeper Phil Senior will be aiming for a third clean sheet in as many starts, while Eddie Youds, Nat Brown and Jon Worthington - who are all on four bookings - will avoid suspension if they can get through tonight without further yellow cards.
"People might have settled for two points from these two away games but, having got three under our belt from the weekend, we've now got to be greedy for points tonight," said Wadsworth, whose side are unbeaten in five matches.
"The result on Saturday was fantastic and richly deserved on the performance - we were strong and ruthless when
necessary - and I am sure we are turning the corner, but there is still a lot of hard work to be done.
"We can't afford to slip up now that we've started to make some progress up the table. We've got to keep on grinding out results and that's what tonight is all about.
"It's about winning our individual battles and Huddersfield Town players coming out on top. That's what happened on
Saturday and, hopefully, we'll see the same tonight."
Town are again travelling on the day to cut costs with kit man Andy Brook the en-route 'chef' and, while it's hardly ideal preparation, Town did well in similar circumstances at Wycombe and Wadsworth is not about to start complaining.
"It's all we can afford, so you have to deal with the art of the possible, not the impossible," said Wadsworth, whose side lost 2-0 at home to Brentford on the opening day of the season.
Frontman Smith is glad to have overcome his injury niggles to maintain a starting line-up run stretching back 24 matches.
"Everybody is buzzing after Saturday's result and it gives us a platform to build on," said Smith, who has 11 goals to his name.
"We've got to carry that into tonight's match and aim to get another good result down there."
