Brentford travel to Carrow Road tomorrow for a difficult match agaisnt in-form Norwich, boosted by the news that keeper Szczesny remains at Griffin Park for another three games
TICKET NEWS - Norwich have lowered Brentford's allocation to 900 seats which have now almost sold out so Brentford are advising supporters to buy tickets in advance and not to travel unless they have a ticket although BIAS have contacted the Canaries regarding the release of more seats so keep an eye on the Official Site today
Carl Cort told the Advertiser 24 website this week :
"It would be wrong for them to take us lightly; the boys' confidence is really high. On paper our Christmas programme had some really hard games but we pulled out some good results and it has lifted everyone.
"We're strong at home but on our day, if we do what we do best, I think we can match anyone in the league.
"It will be interesting. Norwich like to get the ball down and play, and we're more of a side who will grind teams down and use our fitness.
"I thought the club, and especially the fans, were really patient with me given all the injuries and it'll be nice to go back. I'm looking forward to it."
Norwich will probably continue with the team that battered Colchester five nil last weekend.
The Norwich striker is always a handful and is the country's leading goalscorer.
Szczesny will replace Lewis Price in goal despite a decent performance from the Derby loanee midweek.
New signing Toumani Diagoruaga is likely to go straight into the starting XI in central midfield - and Andy Scott may be tempted to revert to a compact 4-3-3 formation.
Tommy Smith is likely to replace Alan Bennett in central defence.
The commanding centre back will have a tough game tomorrow against a fluent footballing side who also possess a physical threat in the form of Holt.
Brentford are unbeaten in the league for five games - and have won their last two away games.
Brentford return to Griffin Park on Tuesday night against Southampton.
