Date, time and venue
Brentford vs Fulham is scheduled for a 5:30pm BST kick-off tonight.
This match will be played behind closed doors at the Brentford Community Stadium with no fans due to be present due to government guidelines regarding coronavirus.
How to watch
TV channel: The match will be shown live on Sky Sports’ Football and Main Event channels, and is available via Now TV.
Live stream: Sky Sports subscribers can stream the match online via SkyGo and the SkyGo app.
Brentford will be without Rico Henry who has a minor hamstring problem, but new signing Saman Ghoddos is available after receiving international clearance and Said Benrahma will be involved despite the possibility that he may be sold before the end of the transfer window.
Scott Parker will be without Kenny Tete, Harisson Reed and Mario Lemina and is likely to rotate some of his key men ahead of Sunday’s trip to Wolves.
Prediction: Brentford 2-1 Fulham
The two sides are surprisingly similar to the ones that met at Wembley, with Ollie Watkins Brentford’s only major exit so far and Fulham yet to make many signings.
However, this competition provides more of an incentive to the Bees – with Frank having spoken of a desire to make history – than to Fulham, for whom picking up their first Premier League points of the season is the big priority.
