Brentford News and Form – Can the Bees return to winning ways?

Thomas Frank’s side were beaten at Sheffield Wednesday last weekend, failing to hold on to a lead in an eventual 2-1 loss. However, they hit Luton for seven in their previous home game, with the excellent Josh Da Silva helping himself to a hat-trick in the stunning victory.

Brentford have been in patchy form of late, though, winning three and losing three of their past six. At Griffin Park, the Londoners have won three of their previous four, losing only once since August. Overall, they have won four, drawn three and lost just twice on home turf.

Brentford have blown hot and cold in recent weeks, but when they are good, they are very good. The recent win over Luton was one of the best performances in Championship history, but last weekend’s reverse at Hillsborough was no doubt a real setback. Can they secure a statement win in midweek over one of their promotion rivals?

Cardiff City News and Form – Will the Bluebirds make it four wins on the spin?

Cardiff City have made a huge improvement since Neil Harris joined the club. The Bluebirds had an outstanding time under Neil Warnock, but it was the right time for the popular boss to move on from South Wales.

Under Harris, City have won three and drawn one. After coming from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Charlton Athletic at The Valley in Harris’ first match in charge, the Bluebirds have secured successive Championship wins over Stoke City, Nottingham Forest and Barnsley. Cardiff’s recent win at the City Ground was their first away triumph of the season.

The Welsh outfit have turned themselves into genuine promotion candidates seemingly overnight. Cardiff have gone back to basics, and they have shot up to eighth in the table as a result. An away win at Griffin Park on Wednesday would send out a real signal of intent to the rest of their Championship rivals.
