Nottingham Forest Preview – Another defeat for the lowly Reds?

Chris Hughton made a solid impact at the City Ground when he first took over from the sacked Sabri Lamouchi. The experienced boss guided the Reds to wins over Blackburn Rovers, Coventry City and Wycombe Wanderers, and draws with Rotherham United, Derby County and Luton Town.

However, since back-to-back home wins over the Sky Blues and the Chairboys, Forest have taken just one point from the last 18 on offer. In the past week, Nottingham Forest have been beaten at Reading and Norwich City.

Our betting prediction:
Brentford to win to nil

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1605 GMT, Friday 11 December)

Forest find themselves down in 21st place at present, picking up only 13 points from 17 fixtures. The Midlands club hover just above the bottom three, a point a place above rivals Derby.

Nottingham Forest will be desperate for all three points on Saturday. Hughton’s side are the underdogs on their own patch, but can they cause an upset against one of the Championship’s big boys?

Brentford Preview – Bees to extend unbeaten run with three points on the road?

Brentford have been extremely hard to beat in recent months. In fact, since a 3-2 loss to Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium back on October 24th, the Bees are unbeaten in ten, though six of those have ended in draws.

After three wins on the spin, Brentford have been held to two stalemates in the last seven days. They battled to a 2-2 draw with Blackburn Rovers last weekend before being held to a 0-0 draw by lowly Derby at the Brentford Community Stadium in midweek.
