Hello and welcome to GetWestLondon’s live coverage of the final Brentford game of 2017 as Sheffield Wednesday visit Griffin Park.
The Bees go into the game on the back of an impressive 2-1 win at Norwich City last Friday before a win by the same scoreline over Aston Villa on Boxing Day.
The Owls, on the other hand, were beaten by Middlesbrough at the start of the festive period, a result that saw Carlos Carvalhal leave the club, before claiming a 3-0 win over Nottingham Forest on Tuesday.

GOAL FOR BRENTFORD!
Brentford hit Wednesday on the counter attack and Florian Jozefzoon makes it 2-0. Griffin Park heaves a sigh of relief. The game is not over but that’s a big step towards three points
Neal Maupay comes on for Lasse Vibe
Ollie Watkins comes on for Sergi Canos
Mokotjo for McEachran
Liam Palmer is replaced by Jack Hunt
It’s been a scrappy game, which suits Sheffield Wednesday more. When Brentford get on the ball, they play it around nicely and create chances.
Barbet nearly turns the ball in from the corner
When Brentford get on the ball, they are so dangerous. They work the ball forward and Florian Jozefzoon’s cut back is turned towards goal by Vibe but a crucial block is made
Lasse Vibe shoots but it’s straight at Wildsmith
Double change for Sheffield Wednesday at the break
Almen Abdi and Lucas Joao on for Atdhe Nuhiu and Ross Wallace
That’s the half. After a slow start, Brentford took control and Lasse Vibe’s goal is the difference. It could be more though.
Florian Jozefzoon is caught late and Sam Hutchinson is booked. Lasse Vibe then goes down in the box but it was a clean challenge according to the officials
Ross Wallace is booked for a foul on Romaine Sawyers. He’s unhappy with something and reacts. The Brentford man is also booked.
Deep corner knocked back and Florian Jozefzoon miscues his shot over the bar. That was a chance.
Lasse Vibe the next man to be denied by Wildsmith – Canos plays him in and the keeper makes a big save
Brilliant play from the Bees. Canos works the ball down the left and finds Vibe in the box. He tees up Woods and his shot is well saved by Wildsmith
Beautiful interchange between Lasse Vibe and Romaine Sawyers sends Florian Jozefzoon clear. It’s a narrow angle and Wildsmith makes a good save.
That’s six goals in five games for Lasse Vibe! He’s in great form at the moment.
GOAL! Brentford lead
Brentford’s best bit of football results in a goal. Lasse Vibe picks up the ball, turns his man and curls a shot into the net. Bees lead!
Brentford will have to prepare for 80 more minutes of aerial bombardment. Nuhiu is massive and strong. The Bees aren’t the tallest side so will have to compete well to cope with this.
Nuhiu has a header that Bentley saves well
First shot of the game from Adam Reach. It was not threatening Dan Bentley’s goal
Some good play from Brentford but the final ball is not falling at the moment.
Sawyers sees his shot blocked in a similar position to his goal against Villa
Off we go then!
Here come the two teams
Worrying stat is in Brentford’s last two home games with Sheffield Wednesday, they’ve had a man sent off (James Tarkowski and Lasse Vibe) and the Owls have scored crucial last minute goals (a winner in 2015, an equaliser in 2016)
We’re under 10 minutes away from kick off.
Atdhe Nuhiu is in the Sheffield Wednesday team as they look to have a bit of height up front. Defending set pieces has been a weakness of Brentford’s so far this season.
