Brentford vs Brighton by Isaiah
Wolves seemed to want the victory more than Brentford and fairly they won at home with the score of 2:1. Brentford started the match with a shot to the bar but Wolves scored the first one just in the 7th minute. Although the game gained a very good pace with goal action from both teams, only the second half produced more goals, with Wolves to score the second one thanks to an own goal and Brentford to reduce ten minutes before full time.
Like most of Brentford matches this season, this one was no exception. Again many action and lot of goals. Anyway, Brentford coach Mark Warburton announced only two or three changes in the lineup for the FA Cup match against Brighton. Central midfielder Alan McCormack and striker Scott Hogan are again not available due to injuries, no more problems for Brentford.
Brighton was more substantial than Fulham and took the victory with the score of 2-0. Fulham was considered favorite to win the match, but they hardly justified this by their performance. Apart from one or two good moments in the first half, they did not threaten Brighton. Brighton was better in the second half and opened the score with a penalty, while left midfielder Solly March scored the second one three minutes before full time to ensure the victory.
This victory brought Brighton out of the relegation zone. Meanwhile they found a coach as they agreed with Chris Hughton (former Norwich) and he will make his debut in the FA Cup game against Brentford. Brighton will have several changes to their lineup as striker Darren Bent, defender Greg Halford, midfielder Gary Gardner and midfielder Elliott bennett had their loan deals terminated and returned to their clubs, while defender and captain of the team Gordon Greer is doubtful. Right back Bruno is suspended and winger Kazenga LuaLua is unavailable due to injury.
Brentford will face the game as usual with fast pace and open minded, while Brighton is coming from a great result and will enter the game with heads up. I think that this will be another open game with more than two goals.
