There is a crucial clash between second and fourth in the Championship tomorrow evening as the leagues most in-form teams in Swansea City and Brentford clash at the Liberty Stadium.

Both sides are currently fighting it out for automatic promotion with a number of other teams, so this game could prove to be vital come the end of the season.

A win for Swansea could take them five points clear of Brentford, while if Brentford win they go one point clear of the Swans.

Team news

Swansea may give league debuts to Conor Hourihane and Jordan Morris after they signed last week.

Steven Benda is still out so Ben Hamer is likely to be on the bench.

Brentford are to be without Halil Dervisoglu after he completed a loan move to Galatasaray, while Shandon Baptiste and Pontus Jansson are out with knee and ankle injuries respectively.

Predicted lineups

Swansea:

Woodman; Bennett, Cabango, Guehi, Roberts, Grimes, Fulton, Bidwell, Smith, Ayew, Lowe.

Brentford:

Raya; Dalsgaard, Pinnock, Sorensen, Henry, Jensen, Janelt, Ghoddos, Mbuemo, Toney, Canos.

Ones to watch

Andre Ayew

The 31-year-old has been sensational this season, scoring eight times and assisting twice. He was a key player last season in their play-off push, and may well be this year too.

Ivan Toney

Joint top scorer in the league, the striker has been a fantastic replacement for Ollie Watkins, scoring 16  goals this season so far. If he carries on, he may end up realising his dream of playing in the Premier League next season.

Previous meetings

These two sides last met earlier on in the season in November, when they drew 1-1. They also met in the play-offs last season, when Brentford beat Swansea 3-2 on aggregate to go to the play-off final.
