Brentford Team News
- Out: Pontus Jansson, Christian Nørgaard, Thomas Strakosha, Keane Lewis-Potter
- Doubt: Kristoffer Ajer
Thomas Frank helped Brentford return to winning ways last night when they ran out 2-0 winners against foundering Chelsea at Stamford Bridge thanks to a first-half own goal by César Azpilicueta and a second-half strike by French winger Bryan Mbeumo. That result saw the Bees earn a much-needed three-point haul as they look to remain relevant in the top-six conversation, but unfortunately for the Bees, they remain six points adrift of the European places with just five matches left on their program.
The Bees will continue to be without Christian Nørgaard, Pontus Jansson, backup goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha, and young talent Keane Lewis-Potter at the weekend when they welcome relegation-threatened Nottingham Forest to Gtech Stadium in London. Norwegian defender Kristoffer Ajer faces a late assessment to gauge any possible involvement and is not expected to feature in the XI should he pass fit for service.
