That's good news for us that Brentford aren't as strong - was thinking that a weakened Leicester side might actually struggle but I'm not convinced we will now. We can't take Brentford too lightly. Admittedly the game's at a shit time for us, right before Villa and after a midweek PL game so we'll be changing more than is ideal but we're yet to lose a cup game this season, so we keep getting it right.

Depends, strongest squad there is

Daniels

Roerslev - Jeanvier - Pinnock - Henry

Dasilva - Norgaard - Mokotjo

Mbeumo - Marcondes - Halil/Valencia

We could go with a back 3, Racic at centre back, Marcondes in centre mid and one of Norgaard and Mokotjo out. All depends on how we want to line up against Forest on Tuesday. With that said the squad is missing Raya, Dalsgaard, Jansson, Jensen, Watkins and Benrahma and they're all first teamers so fairly weakened but still strong, more of a testament to our squad depth really

Big crowd expected for our game. Excitement of potentially getting to the 5th round for the first time since Andy Carroll was a 16 year old :4_joy:

Imagine if we fuck this up man.

I think we'll be heavily changed too with a markedly more important game on Tuesday, with no disrespect to you. 

Vardy definitely out. Think Soyuncu and Maddison won't play. 

Would probably see Morgan, Fuchs, Praet, Kelechi, Gray, Justin, Ward playing.

Champions League qualification is more important for you, that’s normal. Same for us with promotion

We’ve gone very weak, 5/7 of those subs walks in to that eleven

Decent side from us. Plenty of experience in that side. 

Soyuncu, Perez, Iheanacho, Praet, Morgan, Fuchs. 

No slip ups please given Brentford's side too but need to be wary given early exits in past few seasons.

I’d expect you to win comfortably tbh, we’ve a few players like Marcondes, Valencia and Dervisoglu who have first team expectations but are yet to hit the ground running so they could provide a surprise but really it’s as close to our B Team as we can get without actually fielding our B Team

I know the squad was out yesterday but still surprised your best players aren't even on the bench, just incase.

For all the chewing off BBC did of Brentford pre-game, they’ve started this game like a League Two side and have, finally, been punished. Based on the opening five minutes, it could be as many as Leicester want it to be.

That was a fucking beautiful pass from Praet to Justin.

Beating Forest could be the difference between play offs and automatics, we’ve a history of fielding weak teams in cup competitions and it going wrong but I’m glad they’re being rested. This is just a novelty tie really, a good development game for our fringe players

Worried me for a few moments there. Especially Marcondes' shot!

Marcondes has a lot of talent, but has struggled to show it since arriving. Capable of more than a lot of people watching today would be aware of, hopefully he can rise to the occasion

Roerslev is a talented right back, doesn’t look phased at all. Will eventually give Dalagaard problems for a first team spot.

We've got no momentum at all. Gone a bit scrappy.

Lost your discipline. If there was ever a time to bring on Mbeumo it’s be now for us

We've been poor this half. Mbuemo should have come on earlier. Still not comfortable though.

Through to the next round but poor in that 2nd half. 

Job done though as required.

Played a B Team essentially and I still can’t watch an opposition player time waste without screaming at the Tele 😂

Good game overall, sloppy and slow at times but to be expected

Brentford really didn’t want that replay. Just passed it around aimlessly for 4 minutes of injury time.

You'd have beaten us if you played the first team tbf but can understand where the priorities are.

Think that Southampton beat Spurs today considering the form they are in.

Commentator was going on about if we had been a little more bold and played some more first team players...bold...we’re pushing for automatics 😂

And the Saints have equalized. Think it would have been a bit unfair considering how they played most of this game to walk away with a loss.
