Brentford vs Fulham by Shibby
Championship action again today in a game that will see 2 sides battle it out for pride alone. The game will be played at Griffin Park, Brentford and will kick off at 15:00 UK time.
The hosts head into the game in very inconsistent form, they went on a very good run of 6 games without a defeat, this consisted of 5 wins and a draw. Brentford fans feel that they should be higher up the league and with Andre Gray going last season I fear that Alan Judge could be the next victim to leave to move to a higher club. He personally has had a great season and stands out for me as their best player, he creates chances for his team mates and also scores goals.
6 of Brentford's last 7 games has seen BTTS as they fought their way back up the table, they now sit in 10th, however, a play off place is not possible. Their last games was a 2-0 defeat away at Hull City, who still had everything to play for. Brentford are one of the highest goals for/against this season, they have scored 64 goals and conceded 66 from just 44 games!! So as you can see they often score and concede in games!
The visitors for the game are Fulham, who like Brentford will struggle to keep hold of their players this season as they currently lie in 21st in the table! Even the mighty Rotherham United have overtaken them :)
Fulham like Brentford have scored and conceded a lot of goals this season, 65 scored and 76 conceded from just 44 games!!!Only Bolton have conceded more goals.
Their form of late hasn't been great, they have not won in their last 3 games, losing 2 and drawing the other. 9 out of their last 10 games has seen BTTS! So yet again I expect that Fulham are safe they can relax a little and play some of the football we know they are capable of.
I expect both teams to score, I think the bookies expect this too as it's only 1.44 for BTTS! Therefore I'll be backing BTTS and over 2.5 goals in the game at a price of 1.65 with William Hill. Good Luck all.
