Brentford vs Swansea

After our best performance of the season so far on Saturday, Swansea City seem to have picked up some much needed confidence after a rather indifferent start to the campaign.

Andy Robinson's second goal was enough to give us all 3 points and to take us up to 7th in the league and hopefully another victory tonight will take us into the play-offs.

Vital Quotes:

Kenny Jackett:

'It was a great win against Bradford,''

'We'll be going into the Brentford game in a positive frame of mind, full of optimism that we can go on and be the force we aim to be in this League.''

Brentford Team News:

Brentford could hand a starting to place to 19 year-old Simon Cox after he signed on loan from Reading recently.

Oli Skulason and Andrew Frampton are out with injuries although Gavin Tomlin is available again after returning from a foot injury.

Lloyd Owusu and Ryan Peters are also sidelined.

Player to watch: Jo Kuffour

The striker has scored 4 goals this season after joining Brentford in the summer from Torquay United.

Swansea Team News:

Darren Pratley faces his former club after playing for Brentford last season on loan.

He'll continue to wear the captain's armband as Garry Monk looks set to miss the rest of the season.

Lee Trundle is a doubt after picking up a knee injury in Saturday's win. Jackett will assess his fitness before picking his side tonight.

Butler is also doubtful after picking a calf injury in the same game which could mean a return for Andy Robinson to the starting line-up.

Player to watch: Leon Knight

With Trundle a doubt, Knight will be eager to cause more damage to the Griffin Park club after scoring a brace against them in the Play-offs last season.

Match Facts & Stats

Brentford are still unbeaten this season, they've won 3 and drawn 4. They currently stand in 4th place with 13 points.

Their last match was a 1-1 draw away at Leyton Orient following a 2-1 home win against Bradford. Since that game, they hadn't won at home since the opening game of the season.

Match Prediction:

I think with Brentford's tendancy to draw a lot of games so far this season and the fact that they are also still unbeaten, I think it'll be a 2-2 draw.
