Brentford face a trip to Luton Town at Kenilworth Road on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Bees will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 22 and win only 6 of the 34 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was earlier this season, as the visitors ran out cosy 0 - 2 winners in a F.A. Cup match.
