Brentford have named an unchanged 18 for their game with Cardiff from the side that beat Leeds United by three goals to one.

The Bees are going into the game on a nine match unbeaten run and the win over the Yorkshire side saw them climb into 12th place.

And Dean Smith has opted to name the exact same starting XI and bench as that win over Leeds. Josh Clarke continues at right back with Yoann Barbet lining up on the opposite flank.

Lewis Macleod will be hoping to come on and make his maiden first team appearance since the 2-0 win over QPR in October 2016, where he suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

Cardiff, on the other hand, have made three changes with Danny Ward, Liam Feeney and Loic Damour coming into the side.

Cardiff: Etheridge, Manga, Bamba, Moirrson, Bennett, Damour, Ralls, Bryson, Hoilett, Feeney, Ward.

Substitutes: Murphy, Tomlin, Pilkington, Connolly, Gunnarsson, Paterson, Gounongbe.

Brentford: Bentley, Clarke, Egan, Bjelland, Barbet, Woods, Sawyers, Yennaris, Watkins, Maupay, Jozefzoon.

Substitutes: Daniels, Macleod, McEachran, Mokotjo, Vibe, Mepham, Canos.
