Tonight sees another potential Championship classic await us at Griffin Park as Brentford welcome Leeds United in an automatic promotion battle.

The West Londoners made it back to back wins on Saturday with an impressive, spirited victory against Middlesbrough at Griffin Park.

The Bees twice surrendered a one goal lead against Jonathan Woodgate’s me but did not let their head drops, allowing Ollie Watkins to pop up with the winner three minutes from time.

It was a win which moved them to within just two points of the automatic promotion places and their Tuesday night opponents, who have lost four of their last five league matches.

In the build up to the match, Thomas Frank was in defiant mood as well, telling his press conference that Leeds will definitely fear coming to Griffin Park, saying they could not have picked a worse place to come and promised to take the game to Bielsa and his side throughout.

He also delivered a fitness update, revealing that former Leeds man Pontus Jansson was his only fitness concern ahead of kick-off.

However, despite the minor jibes thrown the way of Leeds, he was still full of praise for the Elland Road outfit, specifically complementing them on their intense brand of attacking football.

A win would see Brentford jump above their opponents tonight so you can bet that they will be right up for the fight.

In fact, by the close of the midweek fixtures, Leeds could be bumped down into fifth place, with Brentford, Nottingham Forest and Fulham claiming control in the promotion race.
