Brentford vs Newcastle LIVE: Team news, line-ups and more ahead of Carabao Cup fixture tonight


Brentford travel to St James’ Park tonight as they take on Newcastle in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup. 

Brentford, who sit fourth in the Championship after coming up short in last season’s play-off final, will seek to upset Newcastle, who are 12th in the Premier League, as they bid for a spot in the final four of the competition. The Championship side have two wins and three draws in their last five games, while Steve Bruce’s team have two wins, two defeats and a loss across the same number of matches.

Newcastle were eliminated by Leicester on penalties in the second round of the Carabao Cup last season, so have already drastically improved upon last term’s efforts in the tournament, but fans of the club are still of the belief that their players should be able to go all the way in a cup competition. 

Brentford supporters, however will certainly see this as a winnable tie, and if the Bees are to succeed in getting past Newcastle tonight, they could come up against the winners between Arsenal and Manchester City, Everton and Man United, or Stoke and Spurs in the semi-finals.
