Championship clubs Brentford and Wycombe Wanderers meet in the first round of the Carabao Cup on Sunday. It will be the first competitive game at the Brentford Community Stadium.

Brentford suffered play-off final heartache as Fulham were promoted to the Premier League, while Wycombe were on the other side of the fence in winning promotion from League One.

Brentford Form


Brentford fell at the final hurdle as they lost the Championship play-off final 2-1 in extra time as Fulham earned promotion to the Premier League. Automatic promotion was in the Bees' own hands, only to finish third after losing their last two games.

Thomas Frank's side will be out to put that disappoinment firmly behind them when they begin the new season with a League Cup clash with Championship new boys Wycombe.

Brentford have prepared for the new season with three friendlies, a 3-0 win over Derby County, 2-1 loss to West Ham and a 2-2 draw with Oxford.

Brentford Team News


Brentford have allowed a number of players to leave including Nikos Karelis and Kamohelo Mokotjo. Jaakko Oksanen, Luka Racic and Julian Jeanvier has also exited on season-long loan deals.

The Bees have splashed out on Peterborough forward Ivan Toney, signed Northampton's Charlie Goode and AS Beziers defender Tristan Crama as well as snapped up free transfer signings Mads Bidstrup, Ben Hockenhull, Wraynel Hercules, Fin Stevens and Lewis Gordon.

Wycombe Wanderers Form


Wycombe secured promotion to the Championship when they defeated Oxford 2-1 in the League One play-off final at Wembley. Gareth Ainsworth's side had overcome Fleetwood Town 6-3 on aggregate in the semi-finals when the season restarted in July.

Since earning promotion, Wycombe have played three pre-season friendlies and suffered two heavy defeats. Having started with a 1-0 win over Southampton U23s, they then lost 5-1 to Premier League West Ham and 5-2 to top flight Aston Villa.

Wycombe Wanderers Team News


Wycombe have made six signings in preparation for life in the Championship, bringing in goalkeeper Curtis Anderson from Charlotte Independence, defenders Giles Phillips (QPR), Jason McCarthy (Millwall) and Ryan Tafazolli (Hull), winger Daryl Horgan from Hibernian and forward Uche Ikpeazu from Hearts.

Jacob Gardiner-Smith, Sido Jombati, Craig Mackail-Smith and Jamie Mascoll have all left since the play-off victory.

The last competitive meeting between the sides came back in 2012 when Brentford won 5-2 in League One, with Wycombe winning only one of the last six clashes. There have been four friendlies played since 2012 with the Bees unbeaten courtesy of two wins and two draws.
