LEE CLARK wants Huddersfield Town to shine once again on the national stage when they host Brentford tomorrow teatime.
The third-placed Galpharm side are back in front of the Sky cameras a fortnight after romping to a 6-0 League I win at Wycombe.
They followed up with last week’s 1-0 derby victory over Oldham – and the boss is targeting a third straight win in a clash which starts later than the rest at 5.20.
Should second-placed Sheffield United lose at leaders Charlton, Town will have the added incentive of returning to the automatic promotion places.
But on a day when fourth-placed Sheffield Wednesday host Hartlepool and MK Dons, in fifth, head for Notts County, Clark will insist his side’s focus is solely on accounting for Uwe Rosler’s Londoners.
“I saw Gary Megson’s comments about Charlton having one of the automatic promotion places sewn up after their win at Sheffield Wednesday last week, but I think that was a little bit kidology on his part,” said Clark.
“Charlton have certainly been the most consistent side in the division so far, but there is still a long way to go and we certainly aren’t giving up on either of the top two places.
“It’s all about producing the kind of consistency that Charlton have done up to now, and we will focus on our own performance then look at what’s happened elsewhere.”
Town aim to follow their double over Wycombe with a second against a side they beat 4-0 at Griffin Park in October, but Clark is ready for a tough test.
“They’ve got a good away record, and we’ll be wary of that, but we are on a bit of a roll and we want to continue that,” said the manager.
Clark confirmed Oscar Gobern, who came off after a clash of heads against Oldham, his fellow midfielder Damien Johnson (hamstring) and defender Calum Woods (ankle) are all available.
