Millwall travel to Brentford fully aware of the threat Thomas Frank’s side possess.

Despite the Bees’ sitting 17th in the Championship, two places below the Lions, Franks outfit are regarded as one of the most forward-thinking sides in the division.

Millwall goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski is aware of what Brentford are capable of and won’t be taking their underwhelming league position into account when they visit Griffin Park at the weekend.

“It’s a tough place to go and always has been for me personally,” he told Millwall Official.

“Brentford have spent a lot of money and have signed players, and they’re a really good team which maybe they’re not showing as much at the moment.

“They’re a footballing side and they try to play some good stuff.

“We have to stop them creating like we have done before, and hopefully we’ll be okay.”

Losing last season’s top-scorer Neal Maupay in the summer, they’ve turned to Ollie Watkins to fill the void, and recent performances-maybe not results, have shown they are close to finding their form.

According to Frank ‘it’s a matter of time before it clicks.’

Millwall themselves have had an eventful start to the season, winning two of their opening three games before a winless run that saw Neil Harris step down as manager.

Adam Barrett was placed in charge of their last outing, a 2-1 win over Leeds United, a result that Bialkowski hopes will give his side belief going into Saturday’s fixture.

“We want to take the momentum from our last game and go and beat someone else, but it won’t be easy against a good Brentford side.

“It will be another massive one for us to go and put in a top performance.”

Brentford will be without Sergi Canos and Luka Racic for the tie, while Millwall have Ryan Leonard sidelined with injury.
