Brentford team news and predicted XI vs Newcastle United

Predicted XI

Team News

Brentford boss Thomas Frank may roll out the same matchday XI that featured just before the international break on account of ongoing questions in terms of selection options at Gtech Stadium. As such, expect the same back-four selection after Frank restored Ben Mee alongside Ethan Pinnock despite the performances of Nathan Collins. German international Kevin Schade should also retain his place in the front three with Yoane Wissa and Bryan Mbeumo.

Josh Dasilva and Shandon Baptiste remain laid up in drydock and are unfit for service for the weekend clash against Newcastle United with further questions surrounding Danish international midfielder Mikkel Damsgaard, who is in line for a late fitness assessment to gauge any potential weekend involvement.
