Boss Thomas Frank has urged his Brentford troops to produce one final push in their bid to earn promotion to the Premier League, ahead of their Easter Saturday trip to 18th-placed Huddersfield. 

The Bees sit fourth and comfortably within the Championship play-off places with nine games to go, but a run of just one win in four ahead of the international break hampered their hopes of a top-two finish. 

Despite having a game in hand over second-placed Watford, Frank knows his side must make the most of their remaining clashes if they are to avoid the play-offs, having lost in the final to London rivals Fulham in 2019/20. 

But the Dane is confident the two-week break from domestic action served a timely opportunity for his squad to refresh, and he believes they are fit and raring to kick-start their season run-in with a result in West Yorkshire. 

“The difference between all of the teams in this league is so little and that’s why it is so difficult to get momentum as you have to be at your absolute best to beat the other sides,” said Frank, 47. 

“But two weeks ago feels like a different season, especially this season. That is long gone. We are looking forward and ready to attack tomorrow now. 

“This week has been incredible to train Monday, Tuesday, and on Thursday. I really enjoyed that, and we are all ready to go.”

While Brentford are pushing towards the top of the table Huddersfield find themselves seven points off the drop zone ahead of the teams’ clash at the John Smith's Stadium, despite having shown flashes of their quality throughout the campaign. 

And Frank is wary of the threats posed by a side under the tutelage of Carlos Corberan, who was part of Marcelo Bielsa’s coaching staff at Premier League outfit Leeds United ahead of his move to the Terriers. 

Frank added: “They have tried to build for the future with a new coach coming in. We know they man mark more or less all over the pitch and like to press forward. Offensively they are one of the most interesting and dangerous teams in the division. 

“It will be an open game as we will both try to press high. It will be about which team on the day has that extra quality on the ball.”
