Brentford vs Nottingham Forest betting tips


Brentford are a real bogey team for Nottingham Forest and that hoodoo is expected to strike again when Mark Warburton returns to his former club on Saturday.

As the stats below illustrate, the Bees have kept on beating their rivals from the East Midlands over the last few years and that could be more significant than how they each began the 2017-18 campaign last weekend.

Nottingham Forest were among the teams to get the new Championship season under way on the Friday night and they made a winning start, 1-0 at home to newly-promoted play-off victors Millwall thanks to a goal by Barrie McKay, their summer signing from Rangers.

Warburton, of course, knew all about McKay’s abilities for he was his manager in Glasgow until parting company with the Scottish giants in mid-February, taking over at Forest five weeks later.

The ex-Bees boss should get a good reception from the home crowd because he led them to promotion and the Championship play-offs before leaving in 2015 due to a disagreement with the club’s board, but that is likely to be where the generosity ends.

Brentford also faced a team last weekend that have just come up, League One champions Sheffield United, and lost 1-0 away from home. But their manager Dean Smith noticed a discernible improvement on how his side had performed compared to when they were beaten 2-1 by Huddersfield in their opening game of last term.

With four players having made their debuts against the Blades, Brentford should have improved as a unit for that outing and they are expected to get their first points of the season on the board at the expense of their former manager’s new charges.

Brentford vs Nottingham Forest stats


  • Since being promoted to the Championship in 2014, Brentford have taken 16 points from a possible 18 against Nottingham Forest 
  • Brentford have not lost any of their last four opening home league matches of the season
  • Nottingham Forest have been beaten to nil in their first away league game in each of the last two campaigns
