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:

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.

Love to know where George Boyd fits on the algorithms.

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).

Sheffield Wednesday boss Garry Monk provides January transfer window update

Sheffield Wednesday are planning to adopt a sensible approach to the January transfer window, according to boss Garry Monk.

Given the club's ongoing dispute with the English Football League over selling their Hillsborough stadium to chairman Dejphon Chansiri, it remains to be seen how active the Owls will be with in the transfer market next month.

Monk says he intends to hold talks with chairman Dejphon Chansiri and the club's recruitment team over the coming weeks before finalising his January plans. Thai businessman Chansiri is set to fly back to England later this month.

Monk told The Star: "It is about having those (transfer) discussions and knowing what areas you want to strengthen.

"The squad is unbalanced in certain areas and that is clear for everybody to see but the players have been great with it. I have tried to give them a competitive mindset.

"Like any club, you see where you can strengthen and bits that you feel are weak and you try and do what you can. I will have those discussions when I sit with the chairman and the guys in that process and we go through what we can and can't do. The most important thing is to do it sensibly."

On the prospect of incomings and outgoings, Monk said: “Like any situation, you try and plan and when we all sit together and understand what we can and can’t do in January anyway, as a club, regardless of any impending things or anything like that, is what we can and can’t do and what would be sensible for a club anyway. That’s how I would always approach it.”

How Sheffield Wednesday star Dominic Iorfa has taken his game to another level

Few observers would argue that Dominic Iorfa has taken his game to another level under the watchful eye of Garry Monk.

Iorfa has blossomed at centre-back and played every minute of Championship football for the Owls since receiving a late first-team call up at the end of August.

His outstanding performances at the back culminated in him claiming the club's November player of the month award. Iorfa bagged 62 per cent of the supporters' vote, with Steven Fletcher finishing second and Barry Bannan third.

Quick, athletic and powerful, Iorfa has predominantly played at right-back in his career.

But the 24-year-old's positional change has undoubtedly brought the best out of him.

On Iorfa's prize, Monk told The Star: "I am delighted for Dom. I think his attitude towards what has been asked of him has been first class.

"When I came here, I looked at him and thought his strongest position is centre-back with his attributes and physicality.

"It is great that he can play as a full-back and even as a midfielder at certain times.

"I just felt looking at him his strongest position would be centre-back.

"The key is to give players a clear position to compete for. I think that is what is really clear. It is great they know they can fill in places but you want to give them a main aim of 'this is your position that you are competing for'."

Competition for places is fierce in defence, with Iorfa, Tom Lees and Julian Börner vying for two spots.

Iorfa and Lees acquitted themselves well in Saturday's 3-1 victory at Charlton Athletic. The pair worked well in tandem, winning their fair share of aerial duels and making a number of important clearances as the Addicks poured forward in numbers late on.

But Börner is pushing for a recall after serving a one-match suspension for collecting five yellow cards. The German player has been one of their standout performers this term, leaving boss Garry Monk with a big selection quandary ahead of their home encounter with Brentford.

"What am I very pleased about is we have got a number of centre-halves at this moment in time," acknowledged Monk. "Julian, Tom Lees and Dom is such a competitive three.

"They are pushing each other on to be better. They know one slip or if they take their foot off the gas that there is someone right there to take their place.

"We have got the other ones behind that who are competing as well."

"I have been delighted with Dom but he knows as well as me that his job is to stay focused on what he is doing," said Monk.

"He has got that bit between his teeth at the moment.

"I think he is enjoying trying to prove himself at centre-back.

"He is doing it with a good attitude, not just in the matches but every day in training."

Does Iorfa possess the qualities to play at the highest level?

Monk said: "He can go as far as he wants.

"I say it to every player; you can go as far as you want if you are willing to put the work in and show the right attitude.

"He [Iorfa] has the attributes to do it.

"Right now, I think it is about simplifying things for Dom. Having one role to focus on makes it clearer for him.

"Centre-back is where he wants to play and where he thinks he should be. He wants to prove himself there."

Given Iorfa has delivered a string of accomplished displays at the heart of Wednesday's rearguard, it may not be long before the former Wolverhampton Wanderers man attracts Premier League interest.

Asked if he thinks Wednesday could face a fight to keep hold of Iorfa when the transfer window reopens next month, Monk replied: "No, not at all. He is committed.

"He is the type of player you want to try and build a dynamic team around.

"He is dynamic, his attitude is great and he is a good age.

"He has got a long way to go. He has a lot of things to improve on but what he is doing is showing a great appetite for it. He needs to continue in that way."

Sheffield Wednesday chief issues rallying cry to fans over EFL misconduct charge

Sheffield Wednesday manager Garry Monk has urged everyone associated with the Championship club to get behind owner Dejphon Chansiri.

The Owls, who entertain in-form Brentford on Saturday, face a long legal battle with the English Football League after being charged by the governing body with misconduct over the sale of Hillsborough.

Chansiri bought the ground for about £60m to help them record a pre-tax profit of £2.5m in the 2017/18 season and ensure Wednesday avoided breaching Profitability and Sustainability regulations.

But the EFL felt there was sufficient evidence to hit Wednesday with a misconduct charge, which relates to the timing of the sale and leaseback deal, in mid-November.

The Owls have denied the allegations, claiming they are "unlawful" and have documents to support their claim.

If Wednesday are found guilty by an independent disciplinary commission, they could be hit with a hefty points deduction.

It has also emerged this week that Chansiri has been charged with misconduct and could be banned from football if the Owls lose their EFL dispute.

Monk told The Star: "We stick together.

"We show trust in the club and the chairman.

"He has invested a lot of time and money into this club.

"I have had good discussions with him and he wants this club to be successful. No one deny what he has done here in terms of investing in the team and the club.

"We have to stick together and support him and the club.”

The Owls chief intends to hold further talks with Chansiri about their off-the-field troubles when the Thai businessman returns to England later this month.

"We have had discussions and the chairman will be over very soon," said Monk, who held a team meeting with his squad after the news broke. “We will be able to discuss many things, not just that.

"I think you saw from the club statement how strongly we feel as a club that the situation is fine for us. We are able to go about what we need to do.

"I thought it was a good statement and a statement where you trust that and have full belief in it.”
