Meanwhile, the visitors make the trip to Griffin Park knowing that they can not afford another defeat if they wish to remain as one of the main contenders for a playoff spot.
Brentford boss Thomas Frank has stressed after recent games that maintaining momentum from their own performances and results is as important as either Leeds United or West Bromwich Albion dropping points above them.
However, after witnessing West Bromwich Albion only record a draw against Blackburn Rovers, that stance may have altered slightly as they anticipate the possibility of a season-defining defeat for the Baggies.
Heading into this week, the Bees sit three points adrift of West Brom with three matches remaining, but their superior goal difference leaves them in a position to pounce should their direct rivals lose out to either Fulham, Huddersfield Town or Queens Park Rangers.
Nevertheless, Frank will not lose sight of the fact that Brentford must still win another three matches, hoping that his front three continue to showcase themselves as the standout trio in the division.
Said Benrahma has been the star of the show over the last three matches, contributing six of his team's most recent eight strikes.
From Preston's perspective, they travel to the division's best-performing team having put together a much-needed three-match unbeaten streak of their own.
On the back of six defeats from eight matches, Alex Neil has witnessed his side collect five points from games against Huddersfield, Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest.
Although the North-West side remain two points adrift of the playoffs ahead of such a difficult fixture, Neil at least has something to work with after Preston recently surrendered their top-six spot.
There will also be a feeling that there is less pressure on their shoulders heading into this contest, something which could play further into their favour if West Brom leave the door open for their hosts.

Brentford head coach Frank could hand a recall to right-back Henrik Dalsgaard for this contest.
Having sustained a knock at the weekend, Ben Davies is expected to miss out in the centre of Preston's defence.
Brentford possible starting lineup:
Raya; Dalsgaard, Pinnock, Jansson, Henry; Jensen, Norgaard, Dasilva; Mbuemo, Watkins, Benrahma
Preston North End possible starting lineup:
Rudd; Rafferty, Bauer, Storey, Hughes; Pearson, Johnson; Potts, Gallagher, Barkhuizen; Stockley
We say: Brentford 3-1 Preston North End
Despite Preston's resurgence, it would come as a surprise if Brentford did not record another three points. Although it may prove to be more competitive than some of their recent games, the Bees have been relentless since the resumption and there is no reason to think that will not continue on Wednesday.
