Thomas Frank (pictured) will be hoping to maintain Brentford’s winning run in late-season surge for automatic promotion.

Brentford (3/1 Top 2 finish) can put some serious pressure on West Brom in the race for automatic promotion as the Championship offers up another action-packed programme on Tuesday.

The Bees have enjoyed a fine return to footballing activities this month, winning back-to-back games against promotion rivals to climb up to third in the standings.

Victory over West Brom last time out, which extended their winning run to three, has offered hope of a late push for an automatic promotion berth.

Brentford go to Reading on Tuesday (Match Betting – Reading 4/1, draw 11/4, Brentford 8/11) with a further three points in their sights and will move within two points of second-placed West Brom if they pick up the maximum.

Reading, who sit 15th and with little to play for, have yet to win since the restart and fell to a 1-0 defeat in the reverse fixture when Ollie Watkins struck.

West Brom don’t play until Wednesday when they travel to Sheffield Wednesday and that also offers table-toppers Leeds (1/4 Championship Outright) the chance to extend their advantage at the summit.

The West Yorkshire outfit bounced back in style to best Fulham 3-0 at Elland Road on Saturday and victory over Luton on Tuesday will open up a six-point gap.

Luton are refusing to go down without a fight after picking up four points since the restart, while they are unbeaten in five and have only tasted defeat once in their last nine outings.

There are seven games scheduled for Tuesday night in the second tier with plenty of interest at both ends of the table.

Millwall and Swansea square off in the 17:00 kick off as both clubs look to enhance their playoff hopes (Match Betting – Millwall 8/5, draw 21/10, Swansea 2/1).

Fulham, without the suspended Aleksandar Mitrovic, will hope their short trip to QPR ends in success after losing both of their outings since the restart.

Meanwhile, Blackburn head to relegation-threatened Barnsley at 18:00 and Cardiff, who moved up to sixth after beating Preston on Saturday, are seeking a fourth successive win at home to Charlton.

The Addicks are in good form, winning successive games, to pull three points clear of the bottom three despite being without top scorer Lyle Taylor.

Elsewhere, Wigan and Stoke meet at 19:45 in another game that could have huge reverberations at the wrong end of the standings.
