Brentford lost 3-2 to Stoke City in the league in October 2020

Brentford reached the Carabao Cup quarter-finals for the second season in a row after winning for the first time on the Stoke City side of the championship.

Last season’s semi-finalists moved forward when Ivan Toney set up Sergi Canos to break through at home after a corner kick.

Toney continued his assist with his own goal as the forward scored three for the season when he returned home 12 yards for a changed Brentford side.

Stoke knocked out Watford in the previous round but couldn’t add a second Premier League scalp, despite the deficit narrowing thanks to a nice finish from the edge of the box by former Bees player Romaine Sawyers.

Brentford, who has made a good start to life in the Premier League this season, will find his opponents in the quarter-finals on Saturday.

The Bees had never won before at Stoke and lost 3-2 in the Championship at the same location last season before finally getting promoted.

Boss Thomas Frank made eight changes, but his team – put to work by Stoke after half-time as the hosts threatened to return – produced a thoroughly professional performance.

Brentford are now unbeaten in five away league and cup games this season.

Stoke boss Michael O’Neill: “It was a difficult first half for us. We were too passive and conceded two bad goals. We missed tackles for both goals. The reaction in the second half was better.

“We are disappointed to come out. “

Brentford boss Thomas Frank: “Usually we played a good game. We controlled the game with and without possession in the first half and we created a lot of chances and pressed hard.

“In the second half we got a little sloppy, but overall it was a very good performance away from a good team. I am very happy. “
