Breaking News ! Neil Thompson has cranked up the pressure on Brentford ahead of Sheffield Wednesday's trip there tomorrow night. The Owls are second-bottom in table and have lost their last two games - the latest of which was a morale-sapping defeat to Birmingham City at Hillsborough last Saturday. Given the Bees' lofty position - Thomas Frank's side sit in the second automatic promotion spot with 15 games remaining - not many would back Wednesday to come away from their first-ever visit to the Brentford Community Stadium with anything other than defeat. However, the hosts are in poor form themselves. They have lost three games on the spin and will be without the injured Ivan Toney, the Championship's most prolific marksman, on Wednesday evening.

Wednesday have a poor record away against Brentford, having lost their last three visits there. Incidentally, the last outing was a sorry 5-0 thrashing at Griffin Park. Then Owls' boss Garry Monk laid into his players post-match, saying: "It was embarrassing. Former Wednesday boss Garry Monk labelled the defeat at Brentford last March as "embarrassing". "It is probably the most embarrassed I have ever felt in all my time involved in football." That was the final game before last year's lockdown and proved to be the final occasion that supporters saw a game at the old stadium before the tenants moved to their plush new ground. It was also the last time that Wednesdayites saw their team in the flesh.
