Brentford prepare to entertain Barnsley at Griffin Park on Tuesday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Bees are clearly on top, having won 14 and lost only 4 of the 25 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Griffin Park was just last season, in November 2003, the Bees carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a League Division Two match.
