Brentford boss Thomas Frank denies advantage facing Leicester

Brentford boss Thomas Frank insists they have no advantage facing Leicester City today.

City travelled to Russia to take on Spartak Moscow on Wednesday afternoon, with four goals from Patson Daka giving Brendan Rodgers' side a 4-3 win over their opponents in a crucial group C game.

While City were in European action, the Bees had all week to concentrate on this weekend's game.

"No. I'm pretty sure they are well-trained and fit, and they have a strong squad and they will rotate a few players," he said in his pre-match press conference.

"I'm pretty sure Vardy will start!

"I think when you have three days, no problem. Two days, you could say a tiny bit but I know we played 20 games Saturday-Tuesday/Wednesday in a row last year, managed to keep a better intensity in some games.

"They will be fine and ready - I'm 100% sure."
