Brentford vs Nottingham Forest match preview

After climb out of the bottom three in mid-week, can Nottingham Forest take another gigantic step towards safety?

On Wednesday night, the Reds came from behind to win for the first time this season, beating Brighton 3-1 at the City Ground.

Brennan Johnson saw a tenth minute penalty saved, meaning Forest had missed three successive spot-kicks.

The Reds did manage to equalise in first half stoppage time, courtesy of a fluke own goal, before Danilo’s strike and then Morgan Gibbs-White’s penalty, ending that particular hoodoo, snatched the win.

Before this, Steve Cooper’s team were winless in 11 Premier League games, losing each of the last four.

Now though, Nottingham Forest are out of the drop zone, one point above Leicester and two clear of Everton; those two meet on Monday.

Thus, if the Reds can claim just their second away win of the season, they’d be on the cusp of survival.

No such concerns for Brentford as they kick off in ninth, having claimed a famous victory of their own on Wednesday.

An own goal followed by Bryan Mbeumo’s deflected shot saw the Bees comfortably swat aside West London rivals Chelsea 2-0 at Stamford Bridge.

Thomas Frank’s team were without a victory in six beforehand, but are now above both near-neighbours Fulham and Chelsea, very much hoping to remain there.

At home, Brentford have lost just three of their last 21 Premier League fixtures, beaten by Leeds on the final day of last season, Arsenal in September and Newcastle three weeks ago.

Given that, will the Bees string the Tricky Trees at the Brentford Community Stadium?

Brentford team news

Thomas Frank switched to a back five on Wednesday with Mathias Jørgensen, who’s header deflected in for the first goal, drafted into defence.

Here though, a 4-3-3 is more likely, with both Kevin Schade and mid-week match-winner Bryan Mbeumo returning up front, with Yoane Wissa therefore back on the bench.

Christian Nørgaard is a doubt, having hobbled off against Aston Villa, so Josh Dasilva is set to come into midfield.

Ivan Toney, who’s scored 20 times this season, would miss their next two games, Liverpool (A) and West Ham (H), if booked.

Predicted XI (4-3-3): Raya; Hickey, Pinnock, Mee, Henry; Dasilva, Jensen, Janelt; Mbuemo, Schade, Toney.

Nottingham Forest team news

Neco Williams suffered a rather gruesome broken jaw against Brighton meaning he’ll be out for the rest of the season, with Serge Aurier set to start as the right-wing-back.

Orel Mangala partnered Danilo in midfield on Wednesday, so it’ll be intersting to see if Remo Freuler returns.

Fellow midfielder Jonjo Shelvey will not feature; he’s be excluded from the squad following his reaction to not being in the starting XI at Anfield last weekend.

The front three, Brennan Johnson, Morgan Gibbs-White and Taiwo Awoniyi, have scored 16 Premier League goals between them this season, which is over 55% of Forest’s total.

Predicted XI (5-3-2): Navas; Aurier, Felipe, Worrall, Niakhaté, Lodi; Mangala, Danilo, Gibbs-White; Johnson, Awoniyi.
