I think this game is going to be a really tough test, potentially as difficult as the L**ds game. They will be massively confident after stuffing Luton and they play some fabulous football.

GM needs to get the tactics bang on. I think he will go with a quite defensive side but I'm hoping he goes with something similar to the side we started against Charlton. We will need to take any chances we get that's for sure. The lad they have got that's been scoring for fun looks a really intelligent striker, a younger Hooper.

I agree, it will be a tough game given their confidence and form at the moment. The saving grace is they’re likely to come out and attack us more, which is good as we struggle when teams sit back against us.

CD: It’s always nice to hear the manager speaking highly of you, and feeling wanted at the club. I don’t want to look too far ahead, I just want to put the work in. Focus on performances and the short term - then the long term things take care of themselves #swfcLIVE


GM: Our job is to focus on the football, there will be a lot of things in the media but I’ve said right from the start that we can’t let it distract us. We will focus on our jobs #swfcLIVE

GM: Adversity comes in many different forms but what you do with adversity is turn it into determination. We have talked about it at the very start and nothing has changed the atmosphere, environment hasn’t changed. We are focused on getting three points on Saturday #swfcLIVE


GM: If we get the detail right like we did on Saturday, we know we can win this game. We have done well so far at home and we want that to continue #swfcLIVE

GM: Fernando picked up a slight knock on his knee and is very unlikely for the weekend. He has reacted well to treatment and hopefully no longer than 7-10 days #swfcLIVE


GM: Cameron has been fantastic, thinking of the long term future and with Joe coming back, you want to keep those kind of players. Cameron is a big part of my plans. It is a strong goalkeeping department and we want to keep it that way #swfcLIVE

GM: Our job is to focus on the football, there will be a lot of things in the media but I’ve said right from the start that we can’t let it distract us. We will focus on our jobs #swfcLIVE




GM: Stats get thrown around but we know how we’ve performed against the top teams in this division and we know we are capable. It’s extra motivation for us, it’s about going into each game knowing you can win if you perform to your best #swfcLIVE


GM: My main focus is what we are doing right now for the weekend #swfcLIVE

Tank-owls is quite right when he says that Brentford play some great football. Can someone tell me how such a small club surrounded by giants of the Premiership can keep on producing/finding players who make them millions when sold on? Our record and many other so called "big" clubs is pathetic compared with them.

They gamble time and again on young talent that have drifted down the leagues, and have a moneyball scouting system.

That said they're still in hock to their owner by over £100m

Tommy, write 'Brentford scouting system' in the Google search engine and you'll see no end of articles about their methods. Here's a typical one:

I ask you will Galway bate Mayo? Not if they have Willie Joe...they haven't a hope of beating Mayo!

Interesting paper that. Also interesting to see the name Rhodes being quoted on the chart towards the end of the paper.

It's potentially an over simplification but why aren't other doing something similar but I suppose it will come down to the algorithms they have developed.

We just used the algorithm "slow, old, past it and expensive"  

Happy clapping for 4 years more than Emre

Love to know where George Boyd fits on the algorithms.

Were Barnsley not meant to be going down this route ?

Sheffield Wednesday will have striker Fernando Forestieri missing against Brentford because of a knee problem.

Keiren Westwood is also injured and Liam Palmer is suspended, but Julian Borner returns after serving a ban during last weekend's win at Charlton.

Brentford go into the game after an emphatic 7-0 victory at home to Luton and have no new fitness concerns.

Winger Sergi Canos and striker Nikos Karelis both have knee injuries, with Canos now close to fitness.

Match facts

Sheffield Wednesday have won four of their last five home league matches against Brentford (L1), winning the last two in a row.

Brentford have lost their last two league visits to Sheffield Wednesday but have never lost three consecutively.

Sheffield Wednesday are unbeaten in six home league games (W2 D4), though each of the last three have ended level.

Brentford have won six of their last eight Championship games (L2) - no side has won more over this period in the competition.

Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Barry Bannan has started 29 open play sequences ending in a shot in the Championship this season - four more than any other player.

No Championship player has been involved in more open play sequences ending in a goal than Brentford's Ollie Watkins this season (17) - he has been directly involved in 10 goals in his last 11 league games (8 goals, 2 assists).

Best be extra careful of those 700 Brentford hoolies and keep half of Sheffield free as segregation.
