Brentford Preview – Will the Bees secure another three points this weekend?

Thomas Frank’s boys are knocking on the door of the top two, with West Bromwich Albion and Leeds United dropping points recently. After taking just one point from two games, Brentford struck back with a stunning win at Hull City last weekend.

Brentford ran riot at the KCOM Stadium, with the excellent Said Benrahma helping himself to a hat-trick – the prolific Ollie Watkins was also on the scoresheet in the 5-1 rout in East Yorkshire. Having drawn one and lost one, that was just what the doctor ordered for the Bees.

Our betting prediction:
Brentford clean sheet

(odds taken 1405 GMT, Thursday 6 February)

Despite losing to Leicester City in the Emirates FA Cup and being beaten by Nottingham Forest in the Championship in their last two home affairs, Brentford have been superb on their own patch in recent months. Before those defeats, Brentford had won seven in a row at Griffin Park in all competitions.

Frank’s troops start the weekend just five points away from the automatic spots. The London side are in fifth position, three points ahead of seventh. Can they put another three points on the board with a vital home victory on Saturday?

Middlesbrough Preview – Will Boro continue their revival with a positive result in the capital?

After a 3-1 loss to Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium in mid-December, Middlesbrough were just three points above the drop zone. However, four successive wins lifted them away from trouble.

Boro have now gone four league games without winning, but they have been beaten just once in the Championship since that poor defeat in South Wales. Jonathan Woodgate’s boys still have plenty of work to do in the race for survival, but Boro are now seven points above the bottom three in 18th place.

However, those two wins have come against West Brom and Preston North End, who are among the strongest home sides in the division. Can Woodgate’s team claim a shock victory at Griffin Park this weekend?
