Brentford look Premier League ready!

Brentford narrowly missed out on a place in the Premier League last season but it surely won't be long til they make the step up.


The way they negotiated Newcastle United with relative ease highlights the undoubtable quality that Thomas Frank's side have.


Josh Dasilva was deservedly awarded the Man of the Match award and he epitomised everything that his side are about.

20:27a month ago

Newcastle were woeful

Newcastle have exited the Carabao Cup.


Steve Bruce named a strong lineup against a Brentford side that made six changes and still it was the Championship side that eased into the last four.


Surely not even Bruce's biggest fans in the media will find a defence for that and this heaps more pressure on the manager.

FT: Brentford 1-0 Newcastle United

Unsurprisingly, Newcastle were unable to create a chance to restore parity and they exit with a whimper.


Not even the most biased Toon fan could suggest Newcastle deserved anything more out of the cup tie and Brentford were deserved winners at the Brentford Community Stadium.

A reminded that VAR is not in place this evening, so the referees decision is final!

19:41a month ago


Big chance blown by Newcastle!


Jacob Murphy had done well but he waited for too long before deciding whether to pass or shoot and the Bees defender got back well to force a mistake from the winger.

Half Time Analysis

Neither side will be too happy with how they have played so far in London.


Both teams have struggled to keep the ball at times but is the Championship's Brentford that have looked the most likely to break the deadlock.


It is clear that any chance Newcastle have of scoring will more than likely come from Callum Wilson. The England international has had a few sights on goal and will probably be disappointed that he hasn't been able to add to his impressive start to life on Tyneside.


In what is a rare turn of events, Newcastle have actually edged the possession statistics but not much of it has been in areas to worry the hosts.

19:17a month ago

HT: Brentford 0-0 Newcastle United

The referee decided not to add any time on to the end of the half and the sides go in level.
19:17a month ago


Chance for Wilson!


The Newcastle front man went through on goal and tried to go around the Brentford keeper.


Daniels did well to stay on his feet and Wilson was forced out wide where he passed it back to Fraser but his former Bournemouth colleague didn't fair any better and his shot was saved.

19:13a month ago

19:04a month ago

The ball fell to Fosu who stuck the ball over the crossbar.

19:03a month ago


Corner to Brentford...
19:02a month ago


You can almost hear the groans from Newcastle fans from their sofas!


United have a rare journey into the Brentford box only for them having to go back and recycle play to their goalkeeper.


The move came to an abrupt end with Sean Longstaff misplacing a pass out for a Bees throw-in.

18:58a month ago

Pinnock met the corner and nodded it back to Canos, who really should have broke the deadlock.


The ex-Liverpool man headed wide from close range.

18:53a month ago


Newcastle chance!


A beautiful ball into the box from Ryan Fraser would have found Wilson if it hadn't been for Sorenson.


A great bit of defending from the Brentford man!

18:44a month ago


Huge chance for Newcastle!


Great work from Callum Wilson to get in behind Sorenson, but his effort from wide could only force a good stop from Daniels.


Better from the Magpies!

18:38a month ago


The resulting corner finds the head of Pinnock who should have done better with his free header.


An early let off for Newcastle who are yet to get going.

Thomas Frank on Newcastle

"We have done well in the Carabao Cup and we believe that we can do something in the game but we still have to say they are favourites.


"I have a lot of respect for Newcastle United, they are a high quality squad with some really good players. They have some clear strengths in the way they break, and the pace they have going forward. They defend well and are difficult to break down."


20:50a month ago

Steve Bruce on Brentford and what his team must do

"They're a good team.

"I was disappointed with our last two games and we didn't play well enough. We didn't get anywhere near the levels required but this is a different challenge.

"Let's hope we can play well enough to get through."

Team News - Newcastle United

The main bit of team news coming from Tyneside is the news about Jamaal Lascelles and Allan Saint-Maximin who will both miss out as a result of the effects of having Covid-19.


Martin Dubravka is back in training for Newcastle but his return to the team could yet be some way away.

20:30a month ago

Team News - Brentford

Christian Norgaard will feature in the match day squad for the visit of the Toon.


Thomas Frank did not confirm if he would have any others returning from injury and stated that a few would have to be assessed.


He did rule Pontus Jansson out of the game, citing the game against Cardiff City as his potential return.

20:25a month ago

Brentford will look to carry on impressive run.

Championship side Brentford are currently on an impressive 13 game unbeaten run.


Following last seasons' playoff final heartbreak, the Bees have picked themselves up and look likely to be involved in another promotion fight this time around.


An other point of interest is the in-form Ivan Toney, who will come up against his former employers.



With 16 goals already in the Championship, Toney will be looking forward to proving himself at the club where his chances were limited.


20:20a month ago

Newcastle need a win.

A win is an absolute must for Newcastle United.


The Magpies go into the game on the back of two disappointing results and performances against Leeds United and Fulham, which means it is crucial United get a positive result in the cup before embarking on a tough Christmas period.


It is 45 years since Newcastle last reached a League Cup Semi-Final and it would provide a huge boost to a club seeming close to crisis.
