West Brom vs Brentford (By: Shibby)
Championship action again for me, a cold Monday night will see West Brom welcome London club Brentford to Birmingham. The game will be played at the Hawthorns and will kick off at 20:00 UK Time. the game will be played between West Bromwich Albion and Brentford.
The home side were one of the favourites for promotion this season, they know that a win in-front of their home fans here will see them sneak above promotion rivals Middlesbrough and into 3rd in the table. Keeping the pressure on Leeds and Norwich.
West Brom manager Darren Moore did a great job last season despite The Baggies being relegated to the Championship. He was then offered the role on a permanent basis, so far he hasn't disappointed. He has one of the best squads in the league in my opinion and the addition of Dwight Gayle is insane! He is a very proven striker at this level and his 9 goals so far shows this. West Brom are a vert entertaining team and that can be seen with their 41 goals scored already this season (from 19 games). They also leak goals at the back too with 27 conceded from 19. The Baggies have managed 10 wins, 4 draws and 5 defeats so far this season and of late their form looks good. At home this season they've lost just 2 games.
They head into this match vs Brentford in very good form, confidence will be high as they've managed 3 wins from 3 vs some tough teams (Leeds 4-1, Ipswich 2-1 and Swansea 2-1). The home game vs Leeds I actually watched and West Brom could have scored 10, they were that good against a tough side in Leeds who have conceded just 17 goals (4 against West Brom).
The away side I expected big things from this season, I watched them rip Rotherham to pieces in the first game of the season 5-1 and they looked so good, the issue is their manager Smith has recently moved to Aston Villa and new manager Frank doesn't seem to have hit the ground running as of yet. Their last 7 league games has seen Brentford win just once (2-0 at home vs Millwall) and then they have lost the remaining 6 games. Their last 3 games they've missed out by a goal as they lost to Sheff Utd 3-2, Middlesbrough 2-1 and QPR 3-2.
I do expect an entertaining game, however, I would fully expect West Brom to win here. That said I will be backing Over 2.5 goals and BTTS at a good price of 2.00 with Bet365. Good luck all.
