FT: Brentford 3-0 Fulham. The hosts are into the League Cup quarter-finals for the first time, as the Bees claim their third Premier League scalp of this season's competition, with this one meaning that little but more. Thanks for joining us. Goodnight.
Three minutes of added time here.
Kebano clips a nice cross into the middle, but nobody can get on the end of it.
Fulham are all over the place at the back. So bad.
A threat in front of goal as well as creating them.
Terrible defending again from Fulham presents Emiliano Marcondes with a chance, he prods for goal, but Rodak is across to make the save.
Mitrovic leaves it for Kebano, but that is never going to trouble Raya.
They are not an easy watch.
That is that for Benrahma, as Finley Stevens comes on in his place.
- GoalSaid BenrahmaBrentford
Premier League quality from the in-demand Benrahma. Lovely flick through Hector's legs from the Brentford superstar, before curling a sumptuous finish into the net. More suitors are sure to come calling after that.
GGGGGOOOOOAAAALLLLLL!!!!!! Brentford 3-0 Fulham. Brilliant from Benrahma as he puts this game to bed.
Kebano, cuts onto his left foot, drills for goal, but that is always heading into Raya's arms.
Brentford are doing a fine job of managing this game now, slowing the pace right down.
First sight of goal for Mitrovic, but he cannot get on the end of a low cross.
Double change for Fulham, too, with their talisman Aleksandar Mitrovic and Denis Odoi on for Knockaert and Aina.
Double change for Fulham, with Ghoddos and Dasilav replaced by Sergi Canos and Christian Nørgaard
The marking left much to be desired...
It had not.
Fulham have let their heads drop here after that goal.
- GoalSaid BenrahmaBrentford
Free-kick into the middle finds Ethan Pinnock, who loops a header towards the back post, and Benrahma arrives right on cue to score his first of the season. Killer goal for Fulham, who were on top. Undone, again, by their poor defending.
GGGGGOOOOOAAALLLL!!! Brentford 2-0 Fulham. Awful defending from Fulham as Benrahma makes it two.
MISS! Brilliant from Lookman again as he picks out Seri, on the edge of the box, in plenty of space, but he gets underneath his shot and the ball loops well over the top.
Dasilva with the shot this time, but straight at Marek Rodak. Great game this now.
A marked different from Fulham this half. They are moving the ball around really well.
Kebano lines up a free-kick, again gets it over the wall, but the ball flashes wide.
SAVE! There it is! Better from Fulham as Lookman immediately makes an impact, picks out Johansen, who pulls the ball back for Kebano, The Fulham forward pokes for goal, but Raya springs across his goal to make a superb save.
Two early cautions in the second half for Fosu and Stefan Johansen.
Great trickery from Benrahma as he dances his way to the byline, but Raya cuts out his low cross.
- OffJosh OnomahFulham
- OnAdemola LookmanFulham
KICK OFF! Change for Fulham at the start of the second half as Ademola Lookman comes on for his debut in place of Josh Onomah.
On the money.
- End of 1st Half
HT: Brentford 1-0 Fulham. The hosts are good value for their lead and their chance at revenge for their play-off final defeat, with Fulham offering very little as an attacking force.
Two minutes of added time at the end of the first half.
Long, long throw into the Fulham box causes problems, but Ghoddos cannot quite get on the end of it.
A fine goal it was, too.
Such poor quality from Fulham in the final third. Kamara looks very leggy, indeed.
Kamara tries to latch onto a ball over the top, goes to ground, but nothing is given.
A lovely, sweeping move from the home side, newboy Ghoddos feeds the ball across for the onrushing Forss, who rifles into the net, first time. Fine, fine goal.
- GoalMarcus ForssBrentford
GGGGGOOOOOAALLLLLL!!! Brentford 1-0 Fulham. Forss to the fore as he gives the Bees the lead!
NO GOAL! Marcus Forss puts his hand on the ball as he tries to get to his feet, just before Emiliano Marcondes scores, ruling the strike out.
He really doesn't...
CLOSE! Raya again the mistake, as he gets his pass all wrong, the ball falls for Knockaert, who blazes high and wide.
David Raya comes out and try and see the ball behind for a goal kick, but the ball doesn't have the pace on it, Kebano gets there, seems to be bundled to the ground, but referee Moss is having none of it.
Defences very much on top in the first half hour here.
Long ball into the middle sees the offside flag raised against Ghoddos.
CLOSE! Tariqe Fosu does well to pick out Josh Dasilva, who cuts inside, before firing just wide.
It appears Brentford are targeting Maxime Le Marchand at the back for Fulham.
Still Fulham cannot influence this game. Brentford keeping possession well.
They are busy behind the scenes, too.
Fulham finally get on the ball, but they are offering next to no threat.
You'd think it was Brentford who were the Premier League side here. They are playing much the better football and doing all the attacking.
A simple ball over the top picks out Saman Ghoddos, but the debutant drags his effort across the face of goal.
Appeals for handball against Aina, but nothing given. No VAR in this.
- Yellow cardAboubakar KamaraFulham
Early yellow card for Aboubakar Kamara as he pulls his man back.
POST! What an effort from Kebano, who is something of a dead-ball specialist, as he clips a free-kick over the wall, it beats David Raya in the Brentford goal, but comes out off the outside of the post.
Jean Michael Seri, on a rare start, tries to thread it through for Neeskens Kebano but again there is too much on it.
Knockaert again on the ball, but he is forced out by Dominic Thompson.
Saïd Benrahma looks to thread the ball through but gets too much on it.
Anthony Knockaert tries to clip a cross into the middle but gets it all wrong.
- 1st Half
KICK OFF! We are off and running at the lovely new Brentford Community Stadium.
So here we go. Fulham have not been at it since returning to the Premier League, and their local rivals will be out to compound their woes tonight, with a place in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals up for grabs.
No sign of defensive acquisitions after this bizarre rant from the chairman. Must have really boosted the current Fulham defenders...
Chance to blood the away strip
A reminder of what went down last time....
