Holden warns of "dangerous Bees"

Dean Holden says Brentford will be dangerous despite their point-less start to the 2017/18 campaign.

The Bees have been beaten by Sheffield United and Nottingham Forest in their two Sky Bet Championship fixtures to date and host City tonight (7.45pm) at Griffin Park.

Holden has worked and played under Brentford boss Dean Smith, so knows exactly what to expect in West London tonight.

Speaking on BCTV, Holden said: “Dean Smith gave me my first opportunity in coaching at Walsall, taking the Under-21 lads.

“I hold him in the highest regard along with his assistant Richard O’Kelly. I still keep in touch with them and look forward to seeing them.

“They’ve had two defeats on the spin in the league but if you look at the games, they have been trying to play their football the right way and they’ve got dangerous players.

“I know Dean said after the Forest game that he might look to mix it up a bit, so we’ll have to see what they throw at us.

“However, as we’ve said previously, the focus has to be on ourselves and how we can be dangerous.”

Joe Bryan is rated 50/50 to feature after picking up a knock at Birmingham City. Matty Taylor and Milan Djuric remain absent.
