It’s been a tough few months for Brentford, losing manager Dean Smith after looking so promising in the early stages.
They were one of the sides which truly looked like Premier League promotion contenders, but the recent form has suggested that a play-off assault is their most likely route to the top flight.

Here’s two stars Thomas Frank should be concerned about losing in the January window.
