Norwich vs Brentford by Shibby
Championship action again for me in a game that will kick off at 15:00 and will be played between Norwich City and Brentford. The game will be played at Carrow Road, Norwich.
Both sides head into this game in terrible form, the hosts manager Alex Neill is under some serious pressure now and he knows that if he doesn't turn things around soon he will soon be out of a job. Norwich's last 6 league games has seen them draw just once and lose five, this has seen them slip to 8th in the table and outside the play off places. Earlier in the season they looked sharp and I like many others thought that Norwich would be in with a chance of going straight back to the Premier League.
Their last five games in the Championship have all ended in defeat and something has to give sooner rather than later. Neill will know that they are still within touching distance of a play off place, however, to get into the top two spots now is looking more difficult as each week goes on.
Norwich have also lost their last two home league games, 1-0 against Preston and 3-2 against Leeds. I have seen the games and they don't look too bad, it just seems to be a lack of confidence, which I believe they will shake off this weekend in-front of their home fans.
The visitors for the game are Brentford, they have also struggled in recent weeks and their last 5 league games has seen them win once vs QPR 2-0 and the other four games have ended in defeat. These defeats were against Barnsley, Fulham, Blackburn and most recently Birmingham.
They don't look like the team they were last season and currently lie in 16th in the league, just 4 points above the relegation zone. This game vs a tough Norwich may be too much for a Brentford side also low on confidence. I think that Norwich at home will win the battle and get the three points that they desperately need. This will kick start Norwich and will hopefully kick start their season back up before the new year
I'll be backing a Norwich victory at a good price of 1.95 with Marathonbet. Good luck.
