Brentford and Nottingham Forest both ended extended spells without victory in midweek, although Forest’s win was arguably more important seeing as the club is fighting relegation.

The home side have been one of the most enjoyable teams to watch across large sections of the season, although they suffered a dip by going six games without a win.

Thomas Frank will be pleased with how his side responded in midweek, going to a troubled Chelsea and winning 2-0. It keeps them in the hunt for European places, although they need a significant turnaround.

Nearer the bottom of the table, Nottingham Forest clambered out of the bottom three with a dramatic 3-1 win over Brighton in midweek. 

With four teams, including Forest, within two points of one another, it’s set up to be a thrilling final few weeks of the season.

Brentford FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful:

     Great win over Chelsea in midweek

     Lost just twice at home this season

Reasons to be fearful:

     Their opponents are desperate for points

     Top-seven finish appears outside of the reach now

Thomas Frank will be pleased at how his players bounced back from their winless run to claim victory at Chelsea, even if their opponents are playing dismal football right now.

At home, the Bees are often too strong for visiting teams, having won seven, drawn seven and lost just two of their 16 matches this season.

Nottingham Forest are desperate for points, so Brentford will need to keep their levels high in order to claim victory.

The Bees are also having to cope with a number of injury concerns currently. Jansson and Lewis-Potter are out for the season, while Norgaard and Strakosha are also sidelined.

They saw just 27% possession against Chelsea, which helped them counter on the Blues efficiently. They’ll have a lot more here and will need to be patient to break Forest down.

Star Man – Ivan Toney 

As the season draws to a close, the rumours about Toney’s future will increase with a number of clubs looking to sign him in the summer. With 20 goals this season, you can see why.

Nottingham Forest FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

     Impressive and vital win over Brighton in midweek

     Players like Gibbs-White and Johnson are stepping up recently

Reasons to be fearful

     Just one away win all season

     Conceded 39 goals from their 16 away games this campaign

Nottingham Forest gave themselves a lifeline by beating Brighton in midweek, climbing out of the bottom three in the process. 

It may still not be enough to save them this season, with the likes of Leicester, Everton and Leeds all battling for points at the bottom.

Forest’s away form has been troubling to say the least, having claimed just a single victory on their travels, scoring just seven goals and earning six points in the process.

A win here would be a surprise, especially considering Brentford’s away form, but Steve Cooper’s would be in a promising position if they could.

Star Man – Morgan Gibbs-White

Two goals and an assist in his last two appearances shows that Forest’s record signing has come to life in recent weeks. Alongside Brennan Johnson ahead of him, his contributions are key to Forest’s survival.

     Brentford will see more of the ball

     Forest will prefer playing on the counter

     A game decided by a small margin

Brentford will see a lot more possession here, in contrast to their game against Chelsea in midweek. The key to their success will be how they use it, with Thomas Frank’s side still a little out of touch.

Nottingham Forest will prefer to play on the counter, using the lightning pace of Brennan Johnson and the goalscoring form of Morgan Gibbs-White to hit Brentford on the break.

If there is a winner, and Brentford are favourites to claim three points, it’ll likely be by a small margin.
