Nottingham Forest vs Brentford
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 10 April 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: The City Ground (Nottingham).
The Bees look to have instilled some confidence into them once again as back-to-back wins over Br9itsol City and Ipswich Town brought them back into the contest for the relegation playoffs. The sixth-laced Middlesbrough are only five points away at the moment. A win here could entirely join Dean Smith’s men into the promotional battle.
Nottingham Forest practically have nothing to play in the remaining five games of the season. They sit 17th at the moment, but with a comfortable nine-point cushion ahead of Barnsley in the drop zone. The Reds have been struggling for goals badly of late. They haven’t found the net in five consecutive Championship affairs and they’ve lost each of last two to Millwall and Middlesbrough.
Given that the Bees have been pretty solid at the back recently, we can hardly see the end f such a dreadful attacking form of Nottingham’s. Brentford have kept back-to-back clean sheets against Bristol City and Ipswich Town. It was team’s top scorer Neal Maupay who has provided the finishing touch against both the Robins and the Tractor Boys and he will no doubts be the man to look after here against the Reds.
