PREVIEW: Brentford v Hull City

If you're going to Griffin Park this time around, make the most of the Old Skool surrounds, because - as is the way in modern football - a new ground awaits Brentford. And lamentably, there will not be the famous four pubs (one on each corner) of the new ground. Is nothing sacrosanct in the game, any longer?

Old skool...

Nigel Adkins will be hoping Hull City can restore some form to his side, after a recent wobble in results. While still healthily placed in the league, it is fair to state the Tigers can still quite rightly be looking up the table rather than over their shoulder. However, defensively, Angus McDonald has now been ruled out for the season, following a set back in his recovery, but better news deems Jordy de-Wijs should be fit and added to the squad. Yet, midfielders Dan Batty and Kevin Stewart remain sidelined along with injury.

Brentford have recovered from a harrowing loss of form mid-season to pick up the pace a little and now sit just four points behind the Tigers. However, after last weekend's FA Cup drubbing at Swansea - compounded by defender Ezri Konsa getting sent off - only adds to their back line concerns, with Rico Henry already ruled out with injury. Midfielders Lewis Macleod and forward Emiliano Marcondes are also missing with injury for the match.
