Brentford welcome Doncaster Rovers to Griffin Park for a FA Cup third round tie on Saturday.
Brentford held second placed Charlton to a 1-1 draw at home on Bank Holiday Monday.
The Bees have enjoyed a decent December losing just one of their six games, they have beat Colchester and drawn with both Leeds and Charlton at home.
They are currently sat in eleventh place in League One.
In the first round they beat Gateshead in a replay 5-2 at home after being held to a 2-2 draw away.
In the second round they defeated fellow League One side Walsall 1-0 at home.
Recent home form: DdWWDW
The Rovers have enjoyed a good December winning four of their five games played.
Their Bank Holiday Monday game with Leicester City at home fell to the freezing conditions.
In their last game, they lost 1-0 at Coventry City after conceding a late penalty.
Recent away form: LWWLLL
The two sides have met 25 times at Griffin Park with Brentford having the slight edge winning ten to Rovers seven.
Rovers are in good form at Griffin Park losing on only one of their last eight visits.
The two sides have only met once previously in the FA Cup and it was as recent as 2006.
Rovers won 1-0 thanks to a first half goal by Lewis Guy but the game will probably be best remembered for the goal that wasn`t given.
Mark McCammon stooped low to head in from close range, the ball went through a hole in the back of the net and behind the goal. To the astonishment of the Rovers players the referee failed to see this and gave a goal kick.
