Ahead of the game | In-form Bees beckon for Royals this weekend

22 November 2019

Chris Gunter returns to the bench for the Royals, after being part of the Wales squad to secure Euro 2020 qualification earlier in the week.

Lucas Boyé has also recovered to take a place among the substitutes, after being absent with an injury. Having gained game time with our Under-23s, he makes the step back up to the first team on Saturday.

Former Bees players in the Royals ranks will be taking on their former club this afternoon, with John Swift and Liam Moore both having taken in loan spells at Griffin Park in the past.

Reading will be backed by a sold-out away end for what will be, barring an away cup draw, their final visit to Griffin Park on Saturday afternoon, as Brentford get set to move grounds next season.

A settled side to take on the Bees this afternoon, then, with the teams lining up as follows:

Brentford: Raya, Henry, Pinnock, Jansson (c), Mokotjo, Jensen, Mbeumo, Dalsgaard, Dasilva, Benrahma, Watkins.
Subs: Daniels, Thompson, Sorensen, Zamburek, Racic, Oksanen, Roerslev.

Reading: Rafael, Yiadom, Moore (c), Morrison, Miazga, Richards, Rinomhota, Ejaria, Swift, Baldock, Pușcaș.
Subs: Walker, Gunter, McCleary, Boyé, Méïté, Blackett, Pelé.
