Brentford midfielder Christian Norgaard is a big doubt for the Bees ahead of the Championship playoff final clash with Welsh outfit Swansea City. The Danish international has endured injuries throughout the course of this season and he could miss the estimated £170m match with Swansea City at the iconic Wembley Stadium on Saturday with the injury that made him miss the second leg of the playoff semi-final tie with Bournemouth.
Danish player Norgaard is a defensive midfielder by trade but he will most likely start in a deeper role as one of the three centre backs against Swansea City if he’s fit. Norgaard has impressed a great deal in the latter part of the season as one of the three central defenders. If Norgaard is not fit for the Swansea City game, Brentford manager Thomas Frank is likely to deploy Henrik Dalsgaardon the right side of the three centre backs with young player MadsRoerslev starting at wing back.
It has already been confirmed that the duo of left-back Rico Henry and long-term absentee Josh da Silva will miss the Swansea City game. Rico has made just one appearance for Brentfordsince February. The left-back made a brief appearance in the first leg of the playoff semi-final tie with the Cherries.
Thomas Frank and his players would be hoping that they are second time lucky ahead of the playoff final this season having lost at the same stage last season. Fulham defeated Brentford in the playoff final last term thus securing a place in the Premier League this season. The winner of the playoff final between Swansea City and Brentford this season will seal a place in the Premier League next season.
