Only a victory would allow the Brentford to return to the race in a realistic way for the jump in the category. The training team led by Dean Smith is eight points behind the playoff area and will be forced to play the home match against Cardiff in an unscrupulous way.

The guests will be put under pressure in some stretches of the challenge and could suffer at least one goal, but presumably will also benefit from interesting spots on the counterattack and succeed in obtaining a positive result: veterans of six consecutive victories, occupy the second position of the Championship standings, they are proving to have an excellent squad and I am in full fight for direct promotion in the Premier.
