Dean Smith has called on his Brentford side to play their own game and not the occasion when they travel to Sheffield United.
There is a school of thought that a trip to Bramall Lane is the worst possible fixture to be handed bearing in mind the Blades won League One and topped 100 points last season.
Smith knows that the west Londoners will face a pumped up side managed by the impressive Chris Wilder but believes in his squad's ability to cope with it.
He said: “We've got to play our game. We've got great belief in our lads' ability and the team spirit and togetherness and whoever we're playing there are some massive teams in this division.
“It's a tough challenge. We have no fear about going there but we respect the job Chris Wilder has done and picking up 100 points last season.”
United will also pose a different test, tactically, and Brentford have been working on how best to counter their strategies.
He added: “They play a different system. One that you don't often play against. They play a 3-4-1-2 with two forwards and one playing off them.
“It's a system you don't come across every week. That can give you problems but we've been working on what we want to do against them.
“I'm a big believer in what we do and make them react to us than have to do something different.”
