Josh DaSilva’s second-half goal was sufficient for Brentford to make some club history in their EFL Cup last-eight bind with Newcastle. Thomas Frank hailed his players for “making another section” for the West London outfit in what was a merited triumph over Premier League resistance.

Brentford fans currently have a lofty semi-final to anticipate, regardless of whether they are probably not going to be permitted in the ground face to face, yet for the time being all attention is on the Championship. Advancement is the focus on Frank’s men and, based on the recent months, they look great incentive to procure advancement to the top level of English football.

The Bees have not lost since going down 3-2 to Stoke City toward the finish of October, gathering 25 points from a potential 39 from that point forward. They beat individual advancement competitors Reading 3-1 last break in the league and are three points off the top two. Be that as it may, given the tight idea of the division, a defeat for Brentford on Boxing Day could see them exit the end of the season games altogether if different outcomes conflict with them.

The Welsh side have won three of their on going four on home soil, keeping a clean sheet in portion of those games, and they likewise have a decent record against Brentford on their own fix.

Cardiff City are nine without rout against the Bees at Ninian Park and the Cardiff City Stadium since 1995. By and large, in the interim, they have lost just one of the last six experiences home and away.
