Albion have been urged to keep their shape and tempo - and ride out a storm in Yorkshire.

Huddersfield are gunning for a third successive home win over the Seagulls as the sides prepare to continue a rivalry which dates back to their Championship promotion race two season ago.

The Terriers would love to build on their impressive win at Wolves on Sunday as well as whirlwind successes over Chris Hughton’s men on their last two trips to the John Smith’s Stadium.

Now former Albion defender Uwe Huenemeier has detailed how they will look to do it - and how his old club can see them off.

Huenemeier, right, watched 2-0 and 3-1 reverses at Huddersfield in the past two seasons from the subs’ bench and now plays for a German side who use the same tactics as Terriers chief David Wagner.

He believes Albion have the structure and defence to withstand what will be thrown at them in an intense atmosphere on Saturday.

But it will not be easy.

Huenemeier told The Argus: “It’s a complex topic and Brighton struggled badly in the past against Huddersfield.

“First of all, Brighton are a team who defend well on most occasions and they are hard to break down by any team.

“Huddersfield try to attack high and aggressive because in general every team has got his ‘weaker’ footballers at the back.

“No defender likes to get that kind of pressure high on the pitch, so it’s hard to play out and all the way to the opponents’ goal.

“The flipside is, whenever Brighton are not settled in their shape, like they are used to being, with defending from the front man, they are vulnerable.

“They won’t have the time and the players to stop the Gegenpressing and the way to goal for Huddersfield is quite short in most occasions.

“In my current team, we do it in a similar way - press to win the ball back higher on the pitch and make it hard for the opponent to play out from the back.”

Huenemeier, now back at second-tier outfit Paderborn, knows how Huddersfield will be looking to trouble his old club.

He said: “Huddersfield know, whenever Brighton are settled and organised in their shape, it’s really hard to break them down, so they play a high press to unsettle their shape.

“Brighton like to control the tempo of the game, going forward and defending as a team, whereas Huddersfield likes it more aggressive, pressing higher, attacking with the full-backs and taking more chances defensively.

“They are different styles of football.”

Huddersfield are likely to recall Mathias ‘Zanka’ Jorgensen after a ban as part of their back three.

He was replaced at Wolves by club captain Tommy Smith, who will stand down again against Albion.
