Brentford v Swans
Saturday, December 8 (3pm)
Address: Griffin Park, Braemar Road, Brentford, TW80NT
Away supporters are housed in the double-decker Brook Road Stand. Known affectionately by the Brentford fans as the 'Wendy House', the stand has seating on the first tier and terracing below. Food on offer includes a selection of pies, pasties, hot dogs, burgers and sausage rolls.
There is a small pay-and-display car park in Layton Road (first right off Ealing Road) which costs £5 for three hours. Some roads in the area such as Somerset Road (off the A3002 Boston Manor Road) also allow pay-and-display parking at around £6 for three hours. However, there are resident-only parking schemes in operation on some of the roads, so it is important that you pay attention to the small parking information signs.

*Please note, there are currently weekend closures of the A4, in both directions, between Clayponds Avenue and Ealing Road. There is also one lane closed Eastbound between Boston Manor Road and Ealing Road. These closures will affect Saturday's game.
To get to Griffin Park, supporters heading East down the M4 are advised to come off at Junction 3 and use the A312 and A4, bearing in mind there may be more traffic than usual on this route. Those supporters using the North Circular or A4 from the North/Central London should exit at the Chiswick Roundabout and use the South Circular and A315 to approach Griffin Park via the Ealing Round.
