Brentford manager Thomas Frank has no fresh injury concerns for his side’s Sky Bet Championship play-off final against Fulham at Wembley.

The Bees are looking to secure promotion to the English top flight for the first time in more than 70 years.

Dane Frank will hope his prolific front three of Ollie Watkins, Said Benrahma and Bryan Mbeumo can continue their goalscoring form at the national stadium.

Skipper Pontus Jansson was impressed with 26-goal Watkins’ defending from the front in the win against Swansea, and said: “When we defend well, we attack well as well. For us the primary thing is always to defend well. Ollie’s performance against Swansea was one of the best defensive performances I’ve ever seen from a striker.”

Fulham will have talisman Aleksandar Mitrovic fit for the final.

The 26-goal striker has recovered from a hamstring injury which saw him miss the ties with Cardiff.

Boss Scott Parker confirmed the Whites have a fully-fit squad to choose from.

It means Harry Arter and Ivan Cavaleiro will be available after they missed the second leg against the Bluebirds due to knocks.
