Team News: Brentford
Brentford boss Thomas Frank has to currently contend with reduced team options. Pontus Jansson (Hamstring Injury) and Christian Nörgaard (Ankle Injury) will miss out on this game.
In our opinion, Luton Town might well have a job on their hands to score against this Brentford team who we reckon will emerge victorious.
We therefore see a very even contest with a 0-1 advantage for Brentford after 90 minutes.
