Nottingham Forest v Brentford Match Preview
Nottingham Forest have lost three of their last four and won just two of their last ten as their promotion hopes are sliding. They are down to 12th though the gap between them and the play-offs is still just five points.
At the City Ground, the East Midlands outfit have won two of their last three but also lost three of their last five. Six of the last eight at their own place have seen one or both teams fail to find the back of the net.
Brentford have won three straight and are seven without a defeat in the second tier of English football. They have seen a combined 19 goals from their last four in the league netting 13 of these themselves.
Away from Griffin Park, the London side have lost just one of their last five with three of these finishing all-square. Ten of their last 13 netted on the road have come after the half-time break.
Brentford are the favourites to win this game and could be popular given their recent form and the struggles Forest have had. The Tricky Trees through are difficult opponents at their own place and with the Bees having been in FA Cup action in midweek I would look elsewhere to find the value.
Over 2.5 goals looks a bet here as the last three Brentford league matches have gone not just over that margin but over 3.5. Forest have seen a total of 11 goals from their last three league fixtures at their own place. Both teams have scored over 60% of their goals after the break so try a little interest on over 1.5 goals in the second-half alone.
