Brentford head coach Thomas Frank delivered a positive injury update ahead of the Bees’ Premier League game against Luton Town.

Kristoffer Ajer is fit and available having recovered from a minor calf strain which kept him out of the 2-0 victory over Sheffield United. Captain Christian Nørgaard, who has missed the last five games due to a back injury, is also in contention, while striker Ivan Toney is “pressing” to start.

“From the last squad, everyone should be available,” Frank began.

“Ivan is pressing. He is desperate [to start], and I am desperate, so let’s see tomorrow. They [the Brentford fans] know how much I like Ivan and how important a player he is for us, so let’s see.

“He, like any other player, wants to make a difference. Of course, he would like to perform. With all your important players, you are willing to push them hard to play. And all of the important players normally have an extraordinary mentality and can push through things.

“And the best news is that Christian Nørgaard is available for selection.”

Frank was full of praise for Rob Edwards and his coaching staff ahead of Saturday’s trip to Kenilworth Road.

The Hatters sit 18th, one point behind Nottingham Forest on the other side of the dotted line with five games left to play.

“I like Rob Edwards and the coaching staff and the club, everything about the club,” said the Bees boss.

“Rob has done a top job, together with his coaching staff and the players. Very impressive with likely the lowest budget.

“They have been quite impressive in terms of how they are hanging in there in games and scoring goals in the last 15 minutes. That is hugely impressive.”

Frank added: “They make it very difficult for every opponent. The atmosphere is very good and it will be a big battle in every way.

“We know, at home especially, they have been really good. They have drawn with Liverpool, lost narrowly to City and were close to getting something from the Arsenal game.

“More importantly, only one team has gone there and kept a clean sheet, and that was funnily enough Tottenham with 10 men.

“They’ve been able to score at least one in many of their games. We need to be up for it, and we need to perform.”
