Two in form sides meet at Griffin Park on Saturday, and Tony Mowbray is completely aware of the challenge his side face when Rovers take on Brentford.

The Bees are unbeaten in their last nine games in all competitions, with the latest result being a 3-3 Emirates FA Cup draw at Barnet.

But Rovers are in fine fettle themselves, and have won each of their four Championship games in 2019.

“We face Brentford on Saturday, who I think are unbeaten in the last eight or nine games, we soon have Bristol City to come who are second in the form table," Mowbray said when discussing Rovers' upcoming fixtures.

“We’re in a run where there are some pretty good teams and we’re in good form ourselves.

“Let’s look forward to these games. With total respect to Ipswich and Millwall, they were teams who weren’t top when we played them and were games we hoped we would win.

“This next game against Brentford is a real good test for us. Let’s go there and do what we do and see if we can come out of the game victorious."

The boss adds that his side will go prepared for a tricky test against Thomas Franke's side, who have turned a corner in recent months.

“We can go and win every game, but you have to respect every team," the boss said.

"Brentford have some very good, technical players, the likes of [Neal] Maupay up front, [Sergi] Canos, [Ollie] Watkins.

“If you don’t respect them, they can score goals. The plan is to go there and get the result we want.

“If you go there without doing any work on them then you could get caught out. But we shouldn’t forget about us and our strengths, playing with belief."
