As the scoreline suggests, it was a closely-fought encounter which perhaps neither side deserved to win. Huddersfield came close though with Andy Booth having two efforts disallowed - for handball and offside. Brentford had their chances as well with Stephen Hunt, Paul Evans and Steven Sidwell all failing to take their opportunities to give the Londoners a first leg lead.
