Frank - Bees won't sit back

03 March 2021 03:46:15 GMTPlus10

Thomas Frank insists Brentford will not be afraid to take the game to their hosts in Wednesday's massive Championship clash at Norwich City.

The Bees had topped the standings last month following a four-game winless streak for the Canaries but they themselves then lost form, losing three on the bounce.

A five-game winning run has seen Daniel Farke's men open up a seven-point cushion in the table with 13 games remaining, although his own side's upturn means Frank is confident his side can upset the leaders on Wednesday night.

After losing three on the bounce, Brentford have won back-to-back games, scoring five goals in the process, and the manager insists his players will give a good account of themselves against the "best" side in the division.

Speaking to Brentford's official website, Frank said: "I expect to see a game between two sides who want to dominate, want to take control of the game, and want to take the initiative.

"I think we are in a good place and we go into this game with confidence, but I am totally aware that, against the best team in the Championship in Norwich, we can perform top and still lose."

Pontus Jansson, Rico Henry and Shandon Baptiste remain sidelined for Brentford, who are three points clear of Watford in third, but Matthias Jensen and Sergi Canos are pushing for a recall to the starting XI.

Norwich will be without influential playmaker Todd Cantwell for the visit of the Bees due to a calf injury, while the game may also come too soon for Marco Stiepermann.

The Championship leaders have lost just once at Carrow Road this season and are 2.10 to move ten points clear, while Brentford are available at 3.40 to pick up a crucial three points, with the draw at 3.40.
