Stepping away from the league action for this mid-week might help Brentford in getting their A-game back on track.
Brentford will be eager to bounce back quickly from the weekend disappointment when they play host to League Two side, Gillingham, in the EFL Cup. Brentford were just seconds away from securing a much-needed victory in the Premier League at the weekend. However, a late own goal shared the spoils with bottom-side Nottingham Forest. Stepping away from the league action for this mid-week might help Brentford in getting their A-game back on track.

They have 16 points from 14 games to sit 11th in the standings. Brentford made a decent start to the season but the recent poor form has disrupted their progress.
