BURTON Albion have little time to rue over Saturday’s disappointing defeat against Brentford with Huddersfield Town coming to the Pirelli Stadium on Tuesday.

The Brewers were beaten by a Scott Hogan double, with Nigel Clough’s side now just two points ahead of Cardiff City in 22nd place.

With the busy Christmas upon us, the games will be coming thick and fast, so Burton have opportunities to turn their recent form around.

On Tuesday evening, one of the Championship’s most intriguing sides line-up against the Yellows.

Huddersfield have been transformed since Jurgen Klopp’s best mate, David Wagner, took charge at The John Smith's Stadium and are well in the hunt for promotion.

They’ve already beaten leaders Newcastle at St James’ Park and should not be underestimated.

While their recent form has been somewhat disappointing, the Yorkshire side’s gegenpressing tactic makes them one of the most hard-working teams in the division.

And Huddersfield got back to winning ways against Barnsley on Saturday, with goals from Elias Kachunga and Nakhi Wells scoring the goals.

The duo have formed an exciting attacking partnership in the absence of the talented Joe Lolley and will be ones to watch during the midweek clash.

But Huddersfield are susceptible to conceding goals and have the worst goal difference out of any side in the top eight – something Burton will certainly look to take advantage of.

After suffering a defeat at the weekend, Clough will be demanding an improved performance with a tough run of games coming up.

You can back our boys to get back to winning ways at 6/4 with club sponsor TempoBet.

Chris O’Grady has yet to break his duck since joining the club but may fancy his chances against an inconsistent Terriers backline.

The physical striker is available at 13/8 to score anytime.
