Thomas Frank takes his in-form Brentford to Ashton Gate this Saturday to play Nigel Pearson’s free-falling Bristol City. This is the Bees’ final EFL Championship fixture before their play-off journey begins. After last weekend’s results, Brentford will finish third no matter what happens this Saturday. As you would expect, the London side are the clear favourites in this Championship clash.

Bristol City Preview – Robins’ winless run to go on?

On the whole, Bristol City have had a pretty retched season. It started well with Dean Holden at the helm, but the Robins have picked up just five Championship wins since Boxing Day.

The experienced Nigel Pearson took over back in February, but the new boss has only managed to win two of his 13 games in charge. After a 3-0 victory at Birmingham City on 13th March, City have gone on to lose six and draw three of their subsequent nine.

Our betting prediction:
Brentford to be winning at half time & full time
8/5

(odds taken 0828 GMT, Friday 7 May)

 
Bristol City’s home form in recent months has been horrendous. After four straight victories at Ashton Gate, the Robins have taken just one point from a possible 27. Only Rotherham United and Birmingham have accrued fewer home points this season.

After last weekend’s embarrassing 4-1 loss at Millwall, Bristol City languish in 19th place with 51 points to their name.

Brentford Preview – Another easy win for the Bees?

Brentford have had another excellent season in the Championship. The Bees may have missed out on automatic promotion again, but Thomas Frank’s troops are the favourites to win the play-offs and secure their spot in next term’s Premier League.

Brentford have racked up 84 points, which would have been enough for automatic promotion last season. The London side have made a strong finish, winning three in a row and losing only one of their past 14.
