Inconsistency have always been the problem for Brentford which is probably the main reason they are currently in the ninth place now. During their match against Brighton, they surprisingly got a 2-0 victory against their opponent. That match against Brighton is an important match for them, giving them the confidence ahead of this match. However, if Brentford wants to go further in this competition, they need to address the issues they are currently facing. Other members should also step up to avoid relying so much to Ivan Toney.

Thomas Strakosha and Aaron Hickey remains sidelined because of an ankle injury. Christian Norgaard’s Achilles problem will likely keep him out for this match also.
