The Championship is often said to be the tightest of the divisions in England and Wales.
And there’s not been much to choose in regular league meetings between Town and Brentford stretching back to the first, in the top flight in 1935-36.
Each side has 19 wins apiece from 52 games.
In all competitions, including four play-off semi-final clashes, all in what is now League I, there have been 21 victories for each (17 draws).
When it comes to regular league matches in Huddersfield, Town have claimed 10 wins and Brentford eight, with 36 goals for the home side and 35 for the visitors.
Stretching the first tally and keeping the second as it is would be a great outcome for Chris Powell.
It’s one of those occasions when Town really need a three-point haul, however it comes.
It won’t be easy, with the Londoners heading north chasing a sixth successive win.
Derby County, Nottingham Forest, Millwall, Fulham and Wolves have all been seen off during a spell which has yielded just one win and four points for Town.
Brentford’s record has surely made Mark Warburton a shoo-in for the manager of the month award for November.
A leading light in the creation of the now-defunct NextGen series, the former City trader (he played football part-time for Enfield after failing to make the grade at Leicester City) cut his coaching teeth with Watford’s academy.
He moved to Brentford as assistant manager to Nicky Forster in February 2011, retained the role under Uwe Rosler and became boss in his own right when the German headed to Wigan Athletic a year ago.
Warburton completed the job Rosler started by leading the Bees to promotion as last season’s League I runners-up to Wolves.
They have made an impressive transition to the Championship with 10 wins and four draws from 19 games.
Town’s task is to join Bournemouth, Norwich City, Middlesbrough, Watford and Bolton Wanderers on the list of teams to have beaten them this season.
There has been plenty of talk of fine margins of late, and Town have to make sure they are the side to benefit.
