Brentford is playing his first Carabao Cup quarter-finals tonight to secure another high-profile Premier League scalp

The bees have already seen rivals Fulham of West Brom, Southampton and West London en route to the final eight and will no doubt appreciate their chances of causing another stir on Tuesday night

Thomas Frank’s form strong team is driving an unbeaten series of 13 games and after the 3-1 win on Saturday against Reading they finished fourth in the championship

You are now facing a Newcastle team that have been badly hit by Covid-19 recently and were beaten 5-2 by Leeds last week before Fulham drew at home

Steve Bruce remains without key duo Allan Saint-Maximin and Jamaal Lascelles due to the long-term effects of the coronavirus, while championship top scorer Ivan Toney is keen to make a strong statement against the club that sold him in 2018

That has to come from the bank, though, with Toney only being named as a replacement for his former team

With kick-off scheduled for 5, follow the setup and live match action at 30 p.m. GMT with Standard Sport’s blog below

Sergi Canos is really good at reclaiming the ball high up on the field and Josh Dasilva retires for Ghoddos who awkwardly pounces on the field and back down the woodwork should be 1-0

21 mins: Oh what a ball this is from Ryan Fraser, bending over low, and Sorensen does just enough to get a small touch that lifts him above Wilson, who’s up close and personal came

15 mins: Strange, strange decision by Emiliano Marcondes, who makes his run into the box well to reach the end of Canos’ cross but then tries to reach the chest when he could easily hit the goal can chance away

Mads Sorensen makes a hash by trading in a ball and Callum Wilson takes advantage of pouncing on the loose ball and cracking a shot at goal from a tight angle, but Luke Daniels is at his near post up to knock him away

9 minutes: Newcastle only tries to take the trick from Brentford’s quick start with possession Jonjo Shelvey drops low to get on the ball and try to dictate matters

Thomas Frank said at his press conference yesterday that he expected Shelvey to “run the show”

Ethan Pinnock loses his man to shoot over the front post and get his head on a decent corner delivery, but he can only run across the bar. Good chance that

3 mins: Still, it was a good start from the hosts and Samman Ghoddos is not far from giving Darlow his first job of the night and shooting a few feet out of range

2 minutes: the first thing to say is that the playing surface doesn’t look too good tonight and the scars of the London Irish presence here shows what it seems

The teams are on their way to West London Can Brentford reach the last four for the first time in the club’s history?
