As well as the media work undertaken by Brentford FC Head Coach Thomas Frank and the players in recent days - which can be seen here - there has been other interest in the Club. With the last match at Griffin Park played last Wednesday, when The Bees beat Swansea City to reach the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off Final, there have been pieces written and interviews conducted about the stadium. We have also had some visitors to the ground.
Sky Sports were on site on Friday to speak to attacking trio Saïd Benrahma, Bryan Mbeumo and Ollie Watkins. That feature will air ahead of the Play-Off Final this evening, when The Bees face Fulham. Coverage of the game will begin at 7pm. A write up of some of that interview can be seen here.
BBC News were also on site today to speak to supporters and capture some views of the ground while ITN News have also been speaking to fans for a piece ahead of the game. Keep an eye on both channels this evening for some Brentford coverage. Fans from Beesotted, the Brentford fans' network, were also on BBC Radio 5Live this morning to discuss the game.
