CHARLIE MacDonald would be happy to play the lone frontman at Elland Road tomorrow if it means Brentford grind out another impressive result.
The Bees successfully deployed the 4-5-1 formation when the Bees held Leeds United to a goalless draw at Griffin Park in December.
Boss Andy Scott stuck with defensive line-up for games against MK Dons and Charlton later that month, yielding an impressive four points.
And MacDonald insists he'd have no complaints if the Bees did the same tomorrow.
He said: "It's difficult playing as a lone striker, but we got a result against them at home. [Jermaine] Beckford had two great chances but Wojciech [Szczesny] made two great saves.
"However, on another day we could've easily lost, and If you don't get the support you can be very isolated up top.
"But the 4-5-1 has worked for us, and you can't rule it out. We used it at MK Dons and won it late on, although we rode our luck that day too.
"They're not unbeatable, and are going through a bit of a rocky spell. Their FA Cup run looks to have taken it out of them.
"We'll go there with no fear and have a game plan and stick to it."
