Brentford will face Middlesbrough again after Boro's one season in the Premier League ended in relegation, with Aitor Karanka sacked in March.
The Bees have a torrid record against the Teessiders, losing their last nine games, including six in the last three years.
Brentford have not met Middlesbrough often since the second world war, with their only league meeting, prior to the 2014/15 season coming in the 1986/87 campaign.
Indeed, the last time the Bees picked up a win in the league was in December 1938; a 2-1 win at Griffin Park.
In total, the two sides have faced off 23 times with Brentford winning seven, drawing three and losing 13.
Below, GetWestLondon takes a look at a handful of games between the two teams.
Last meeting: Brentford 0-1 Middlesbrough (January 12 2016)
Brentford's poor record against Boro continued as the Teessiders ground out a 1-0 victory thanks to a David Button own goal.
The Bees had the better of the play but Aitor Karanka's side were able to restrain the Bees, by fair means and foul.
Brentford finished ninth at the end of the season while Boro clinched promotion to the Premier League, although they were confirmed as being back in the second tier less than a year later.
First meeting: Brentford 1-0 Middlesbrough (February 2 1907)
The first meeting between the two sides came in the FA Cup second round and it was the west London side that tasted glory with Patrick Hagan scoring in the 1-0 win.
The Bees faced Crystal Palace in round three and, although they drew 1-1 against the Eagles in south London, Palace emerged triumphant in the replay.
Memorable meeting: Brentford 2-1 Middlesbrough (January 4 1964)
Brentford haven't had many meetings with Boro but this one in 1964 was the last time the Bees emerged triumphant.
John Dick and Billy McAdams found the net as the west Londoners claimed a 2-1 win. Brentford bowed out in the fourth round against Oxford after a replay.
