The Bees have not played in the division since a 2-1 win over Bournemouth on December 30.

Brentford return to Sky Bet Championship action for the first time in three weeks when they host Luton on Wednesday and will have head coach Thomas Frank back in the dugout.

A positive coronavirus test saw the Dane forced to self-isolate and miss their FA Cup victory at Middlesbrough on January 9 while further cases at the club saw league games with Bristol City and Reading postponed.

Frank was back at the training ground on Monday along with the rest of the squad after it was reopened and preparations for the clash with the Hatters continue, but captain Pontus Jansson will be absent after ankle surgery.

Midfielder Josh Dasilva has two more matches of a three-game ban to serve following his red card at Tottenham and Shandon Baptiste (knee) and Christian Norgaard (ankle) have struggled for game time due to their respective injuries.

Luton could hand a full debut to Kal Naismith after he impressed off the bench in the 1-0 win at Bournemouth last weekend.

The new recruit was called into action early after Tom Lockyer suffered a nasty blow to the face which resulted in Jefferson Lerma being sent off.

Lockyer will need to be assessed ahead of the clash in London while Martin Craine (calf) is still absent.

Matty Pearson was on the bench for Saturday's match and is another in contention to start.
