We continue to rekindle our pseudo-rivalry with one of our closest West London neighbors as we make the short journey to Brentford tonight. The Bees can be a docile midtable outfit, unless you make them angry and have them sting you repeatedly.
With the various injury and fitness concerns, Potter has opted to rotate slightly while switching to what looks like a back-four. Armando Broja gets his first start up front!
Here we go!
