MATT Lowton is expecting a tough game against Huddersfield today as he sees similarities between the two sides.

The Clarets head into the Turf Moor clash (3pm) sitting seventh in the Premier League, but David Wagner's newly promoted side are one place higher in sixth.

Lowton has been impressed with what he's seen from the Terriers and is expecting a different kind of test today.

"It seems like they work hard for each having watched the clips we have seen," he said. "It looks from the outside that everyone is working hard.

"You see someone giving the ball away and the next man in is trying to win it back and get it back. They are probably the most similar to us.

"It will be a tougher game for a different reason. The bigger clubs play a lot more football, I suppose, a lot more passes and there is a lot of shuffling and sliding, keeping position.

"I watched them against West Ham. I am not sure how they will play against us but they tend to sit off and try to break. We need to be wary of that. They have a lot of pace out wide and up front. It will be a similar sort of philosophy to how we play."

Burnley head into the game as favourites, but Lowton said they won't change how the Clarets set up ahead of the game, with the focus on themselves rather than the opposition.

"We will approach it as we approach any other game," he said. "The manager will keep on to us about what we are all about.

"The things we try to do right every weekend. We will try to make it about us as much as them.

"It’s just how we train during the week. We are always on it. Every day the manager is reiterating points here and there.

"It keeps us on our toes and has worked well for us. It’s a matter of keeping it going."
