Speaking ahead of the clash, Brentford boss Thomas Frank said: “There is no doubt that Newcastle are aiming to be a top six side in the future. Eddie Howe, his staff, and players have done a very good job so far. Last year, they stabilised the club, and, this year, they’ve only lost to Liverpool.

“They look very strong, dynamic, physical, and aggressive. St James’s Park is one of the most difficult grounds to go to, but we’re up for the challenge. We will go out there with the best intentions of getting three points.”
