The hosts played well last year following their difficult start of the season. The team was always lying somewhere between mid-table and top 6 and this year will be looking to improve.

They opened up this season with a bang scoring 5 against Rotherham. Their true test was at Stoke which the team managed to pass although not with the highest of grades. The Bees managed to get a point and perhaps were a bit better than their opponents. Midweek they also played well against Southend in the Carabao Cup getting an entertaining 4-2 victory.

Sheffield Wednesday continues to struggle. The team was nowhere near its usual standard last year and it looks like their best days are over.

The preseason preparation didn’t go according to plan and the season also looks like the friendlies.

Defeat to new boys Wigan and a home draw against Hull conceding 4 goals in 2 games is nowhere near the required level of play.

Luhukay was brought in following Carlos Carvalhal failing to bring the team to 3rd playoffs in a row and now his place begins to under pressure from the start.

A bit of relief was the Carabao Cup victory over Sunderland but the manager needs to do a lot more than that to earn the fans respect.

Brentford vs Sheffield: Predictions

Brentford were a decent host last term and the same could be applied to this season judging by their strong opening game. The team knows how to score and often does so. Sheffield are shaky especially away from home and the team may struggle on Sunday. All the signs are for comfortable Brentford victory.
