BOSS Peter Jackson will send his Town side into the Brentford bear pit tomorrow (3.00) promising: "We'll give as good as we get."
While his own League I play-off hopes ended with last week's 2-2 draw against Colchester, a top-six finish is very much a possibility for the West Londoners.
Jackson expects to face a home side playing "strong, aggressive and direct" football and desperate to atone for last week's shock 4-1 setback at Bradford.
And the atmosphere at Griffin Park promises to be partisan, with Grant Hegley, referee for their last home game, when Tranmere were beaten 1-0, reporting alleged racist comments and "aggressive and threatening behaviour" by home fans.
It's not the first time accusations have been levelled at Bees followers, and FA representatives are due at tomorrow's match.
Town themselves have just been hit with a £400 fine from the FA after players became involved in a brawl during last month's 2-1 defeat at Chesterfield.
Chris Brandon, facing his former club, was at the centre of the skirmish in a game which brought red cards for Efe Sodje and Tom Clarke.
Town will aim to keep it clean tomorrow, but Jackson says they will be competitive.
Counterpart Martin Allen will be seeking a massive improvement after Bradford, admitting: "There are three basics to our game, winning headers, winning tackles and winning races, and we have to start doing that again."
Jackson, a big admirer of the former QPR and West Ham midfielder, has promised to meet the challenge head on.
"There are nine points left to play for, and we want to earn them all," he said.
"We have to deny them time and space, and if we play the way we can, we'll win."
The Clarke brothers Tom (hamstring) and Nathan (gashed lip) were both in the party which travelled South after training this morning.
