Bournemouth Preview – Can Cherries take advantage?

Bournemouth will have first bite at the cherry when they play host to Brentford in this crucial Play-Off 1st leg at the Vitality Stadium as Bournemouth will look to shrug off three recent defeats on the trot in the English second tier.

Recent defeats against tonight’s opponents, Brentford (1-0 at home), Wycombe Wanderers and Stoke City was a disappointing end to the season for the south coast outfit, especially as The Cherries had previously put together an impressive seven-match winning streak which had helped them into the play-offs.

Results at home though have produced mixed returns for Bournemouth as they’ve won three and lost three of their last six at the Vitality Stadium, so this could be a tough 1st leg tie on Monday night.

Our betting suggestion:

Brentford Preview – Can Bees keep buzzing?

By contrast, Brentford finished their Championship campaign in excellent fashion, winning their last four matches on the trot with victories gained over Bournemouth, Rotherham United, Watford and Bristol City and indeed, The Bees finished the season with a solid 12-match unbeaten sequence.

This unbeaten run consisted of six wins and six draws and four of Brentford’s six wins during the run-in were picked up away from home too, so this will give the London club plenty of confidence as they prepare for their trip down to the south coast on Monday evening.

Brentford are also unbeaten in their last six matches on their travels as well, winning four and drawing two which includes wins at Blackburn Rovers, Preston NE, Bournemouth and Bristol City but the slate is wiped clean when the play-offs start.
