Match Preview

An interesting clash is set for the City Ground on Sunday, as Nottingham Forest and Brentford will both be looking to get back on track after suffering defeats in their most recent fixtures. Forest suffered a third defeat of the campaign last weekend, as they were easily edged out by Manchester City at the Etihad.

However, Forest have been excellent at the City Ground since returning to the Premier League, as they have lost just twice in their last 17. Over that period, they have recorded eight wins, with their only home losses coming against Newcastle and Manchester United in March and April, respectively.

Brentford will be looking for a response this weekend, as their undefeated start to the season has ended with back-to-back losses. However, the Bees have an excellent record in this fixture, as they have won five of their eight away matches against Forest at the City Ground in league competitions. They are also unbeaten in their last four against Forest.

A response will be required this weekend, as Brentford have gone four without a victory in the Premier League. That came after a run of four wins in five matches. The Bees haven’t suffered three defeats on the bounce in the Premier League since April, and a victory this weekend would be considered essential to get their campaign back on track.

Nottingham Forest vs Brentford Prediction

Forest’s home record since returning to the Premier League is a very challenging trend to overlook. But, we do expect to see an improved performance from Brentford this weekend. Therefore, we could see the most likely outcome being the draw on Sunday.
