Brentford will look to make their way into the Premier League when they take on Fulham in the final on August 5. The Bees won the Semi-final clash against Swansea City with an aggregate of 3-2 and would look to replicate their performance from the second leg of the semi-final when they take on the Cottagers in the final.
Thomas Frank has been excellent in his tactics throughout the season as he helped Brentford to reach the final of the Championship Playoffs. His men were able to keep their cool in the match against Swansea, and despite facing a loss in the first leg of the clash, they came back strongly to win the second leg and go through to the playoff finals. However, the Brentford mastermind should be well aware of the fact that it will not be an easy encounter for his team in the final against Fulham. Frank will be happy that he does not have any significant injury concerns ahead of the final match as everyone is fit except striker Marcus Forss who is out with a hamstring injury.
The four-man backline of Brentford, consisting of Henrik Dalsgaard, Pontus Jansson, Ethan Pinnock and Rico Henry executed great defensive skills against Swansea in both the legs of the semi-final clash and will be expected to repeat their performances against the Cottagers. While captain Pontus Jansson will guard the goal along with Pinnock in the heart of the defence, Dalsgaard and Henry will be deployed in their usual positions as the right and left-back options respectively.
David Raya is set to start in the goal for Thomas Frank’s side in the crucial clash.
The likes of Christian Nörgaard, Mathias Jensen and Emiliano Marcondes have been in decent form this season and will be expected to make a mark in the match against Fulham as well. While Marcondes scored a goal in his side’s win against the Swans, Jensen assisted striker Ollie Watkins to grab the opener in the game that led to Brentford’s revival in the semi-final clash. Fulham will be aware of the threat these three possess and will look to keep them as quiet as possible.
Striker Ollie Watkins was a constant threat in the semi-final second leg and grabbed the opening goal for his side. He will definitely look to continue his scoring form in the final as well and add to his impressive tally of 25 goals and end the season by winning promotion to the Premier League.
Saïd Benrahma, who has been in stellar form all this season for the Bees, will look to make his mark in the final. He assisted Marcondes for the second goal in the semi-final against Swansea. He and Bryan Mbeumo have been continually threatening the opposition this season and have earned rich dividends for their showing with 17 and 15 goals respectively to their names.
