Huddersfield Town head to the capital this weekend to take on Brentford.
Both clubs have changed their team chiefs this season as they aim to make a mark in the Championship despite spending less than may of their rivals.
Here are three individual duels which could shape the game:
Ishmael Miller v James Tarkowski
It’s a meeting of Mancunians in West London.
Both men hail from Moston, with central defender Tarkowski, 23, starting his career at Oldham Athletic.
Miller, 28, began at Manchester City and also played for West Bromwich Albion, Nottingham Forest and Blackpool before joining Town midway through last season.
He scored his first goal of the current campaign to help defeat Rotherham United on Tuesday.
Head coach David Wagner has also spoken of the value of 6ft 3in Miller in defending set-pieces, an area on which Brentford focus.
Joel Lynch v Alan Judge
Centre-back Lynch made an impressive return to action for Town against Rotherham after a hamstring injury, winning 100% of his tackles.
It was the former Nottingham Forest man’s 101st league appearance for the club after five games out.
The 28-year-old provided extra solidity in defence as Town kept a clean sheet.
But he will face a tricky operator in Judge, Brentford’s eight-goal top scorer.
The diminutive former Blackburn Rovers and Notts County man can play as a striker or go deeper.
Sean Scannell v Jake Bidwell
Powerful winger Scannell racked up his 260th league appearance on Tuesday.
It was a relatively quiet game for the former Crystal Palace man, who will be looking to bounce back.
Out to keep him under wraps will be Brentford skipper Bidwell.
The former England junior left-back is an Everton product.
Now 22, he joined Brentford in 2013 after a couple of loan spells.
