Brentford Preview – Can the Bees bounce back with a vital victory?

Brentford have had another superb season under Thomas Frank. After a sluggish start, the Bees have really kicked into gear, picking up 19 wins from 36 games. They are the league’s top scorers by some distance, netting an outstanding 64 times so far.

However, the Premier League chasing Londoners have not had it all their own way in recent weeks. In fact, the Bees have won just three of their last eight in the Championship. Over the past month or so, Brentford have suffered defeats to the likes of Barnsley, Queens Park Rangers, Coventry City and Norwich City.

Our betting prediction:
Brentford to win to nil
8/5

In midweek, Frank’s troops let a 2-0 lead slip at Pride Park to draw 2-2 with Wayne Rooney’s Derby County. Can they dust themselves down and return to winning ways on home turf at the weekend?

Nottingham Forest Preview – Reds’ winless run to stretch to six games?

Since taking over at the City Ground, the experienced Chris Hughton has certainly steadied the ship at Nottingham Forest. However, the Reds could do three points sooner rather than later having failed to win in five (three losses, two draw).

After taking a mere two points from 12 on offer, Nottingham Forest fell to another defeat in midweek. League leaders Norwich City left the City Ground with a comfortable 2-0 win, with early goals from Teemu Pukki and Kieran Dowell doing the business.

Nottingham Forest are currently in 18th place in the Championship table, nine points clear of 22nd-place Rotherham United. However, the Millers have four games in hand on the Reds. Hughton and his team will be desperate to avoid another defeat this weekend.

 

Brentford vs Nottingham Forest Betting Advice

Brentford cruised to a 3-1 win when these two squared off at the City Ground back in mid-December. Henrik Dalsgaard opened the scoring early on, with late goals from Josh Dasilva and Ivan Toney making sure of the points. Joe Worrall netted the last goal before Anthony Knockaert was sent off.

 

Key Facts – Brentford vs Nottingham Forest Betting Tip

  • Nottingham Forest beat Brentford 1-0 home and away last season
  • The Bees have won just three of their previous eight
  • Forest are without a win in five, drawing two and losing three

 

Nottingham Forest have definitely improved under Hughton, but the Midlands club are in danger of being dragged back towards the bottom three after three defeats in five. The Reds have taken a measly two points from the last 15 on offer, and we can see them crashing to another defeat on Saturday.

Brentford will be eager to bounce back from the midweek disappointment at the home of Forest’s rivals, and the visitors could be on the receiving end of a Bees backlash. Take a punt on the hosts to win -2 at 5/1.

Ivan Toney is well on his way to winning the Championship Golden Boot. Toney, who netted in the reverse fixture at the City Ground, is available at 15/4 to score two or more goals in this one.
