Brentford and Doncaster Rovers will try for a third time on Tuesday night to play their FA Cup third round tie with Derby County awaiting the winners.
The Bees are in good form at the moment and are unbeaten in their last five games.
Last time out on Saturday they beat Carlisle United 3-1 at home.
Their home form is quite impressive winning five, drawing six and losing just two games in League One.
They have already played the top four at home and are unbeaten, beating Norwich and Colchester and drawing with Charlton and Leeds.
Recent home form: WDdWWD
Rovers have just played their first game since Christmas last Saturday and beat Watford 2-1 at home to move into the top half of the Championship.
In their last away game on Boxing Day they lost 1-0 at Coventry City after conceding a late penalty.
So far on their travels in the Championship this season they have won two, drawn four and lost six.
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.

1981/82 Brentford 2-2 Doncaster
1982/83 Brentford 1-0 Doncaster
