MATCH PREVIEW: BRENTFORD

21 November 2017

READ our match preview ahead of this evening’s Championship fixture against Brentford at Griffin Park (7.45pm).

HEAD 2 HEAD



The Brewers and The Bees have only met on two previous occasions which were league games last season, and it’s not great reading for the Brewers. Dean Smith’s side turned over Burton both times with a 2-1 win at Griffin Park before a 5-3 victory at the Pirelli Stadium.

SEASON SO FAR




Brentford have struggled to find any kind of consistency so far this season and currently sit 13th in the Championship table.

It took them nine league games to finally register their first win which came against Bolton Wanderers, but they followed that victory up with crucial back-to-back draws against Derby County and Middlesbrough in September.

They remained unbeaten for eight games after that first win but their run was halted on Saturday when they lost 2-0 to Cardiff City at the Cardiff City Stadium.

BRENTFORD TEAM NEWS



Sergi Canos impressed off the bench against Cardiff and could start ahead of Florian Jozefzoon out wide. Rico Henry and Alan Judge are both sidelined with long-term injury problems, while Henrik Dalsgaard is also out through injury.
