Tony Mowbray has named an unchanged team and substitutes for the away clash at Brentford's Griffin Park.

That means Elliott Bennett continues to captain the team in place of the injured Charlie Mulgrew, who remains out with a hamstring injury picked up at Newcastle United at the start of the year.

Bennett starts for the 350th time in his career, whilst there is a milestone for Harrison Reed, who makes his 100th career appearance.

Brentford, like Rovers, name an unchanged starting XI from their last league outing against Rotherham United, which they won 4-2 away from home.

The two in form teams in the Championship go head to head, with the Bees unbeaten in their last nine games in all competitions, whilst Rovers have won each of their last four league games in 2019.

Kick-off this afternoon is at 3pm and you can follow all the action via iFollow Rovers or across our social media channels.

Brentford: Bentley, Henry, Maupay, Watkins, Mokotjo, Sawyers (c), Benrahma, Dalsgaard, Jeanvier, Konsa, Barbet.

Substitutes: Daniels, Odubajo, Canos, McEachran, Dasilva, Ogbene, Sorensen

Rovers: Raya, Bennett (c), Rodwell, Lenihan, Bell, Evans, Travis, Reed, Dack, Armstrong, Graham.

Substitutes: Leutwiler, Williams, Smallwood, Rothwell, Brereton, Nuttall, Conway.
