Fulham Manager Felix Magath has revealed the Brentford victory has put the players in a confident frame of mind heading into the Cardiff clash.
Mohamed Al Fayed has also hit back at the Fulham manager after he blamed the club's former owner for their recent demise.
The Cottagers were relegated from the Premier League in May after 13 seasons.
He accused Al Fayed of "not spending money", despite injecting around £200 million into the club over 16 years.
Fulham sold the best players and brought in average players. You cannot go on doing that for a long time.
Al Fayed has described suggestions he is to blame as "absurd."
Parsons Green Lane in Fulham is closed to both traffic and pedestrians due to a fire at the junction with Novello Street.
The Parsons Green Tube station is also believed to be affected.

After last week's 3-1 defeat against Spurs, time is running out for Fulham. To keep their hopes of playing in next season's Premiership alive, a win at Craven Cottage today is critical. The Lillywhites have won two of their last three home matches.
Fulham manager Felix Magath remains confident that his side can stay in the Premier League if they win their home games.
The west London side, who are currently two points adrift of safety in 19th, face Hull City at Craven Cottage on Saturday ahead of a trip to Stoke City and a final home game against Crystal Palace.
"I am convinced we will stay up if we win our home games, but we have another game next week away at Stoke and there is always a chance to win three points," Magath said.
"We will not only try to win at our home games, we try to win every game."
Fulham will continue their fight to stay in the Premier League with a home clash against Norwich today.
Manager Felix Magath does have Scott Parker up for selection, after the midfielder was given the green light to play following more than a month out with a knee injury.
Darren Bent, Dan Burn and Giorgos Karagounis have also returned to fitness, although injured striker Kostas Mitroglou is still not in contention.
Fulham are currently eighteenth in the table and remain in the relegation zone, whilst opponents Norwich are one place and five points ahead of them.
Elsewhere, Crystal Palace welcome Aston Villa to Selhurst Park whilst Tottenham travel to the Hawthorns to face West Brom.
