Quotes: Danny Wilson
Talking to the BBC:
‘We’re disappointed we haven’t finished the teams off in the last two games, and we’re disappointed to concede late goals in both games.
‘But it’s been a decent start and were really in the hunt for a top six position, so I’ve got no worries.’
Brentford Team News:
Carl Cort, Ben Strevens, Ryan Dickson and David Hunt are all expecting to miss out.
Brentford earned themselves an impressive victory over Southend this week and will no doubt keep faith in the side that beat the Shrimpers.
