Brentford to see off Cardiff at Griffin Park

Brentford suffered a second defeat away from home on the trot in the Championship on Saturday when they were handed a 2-1 loss at Sheffield Wednesday, but The Bees will still be confident of bouncing back with a win at Griffin Park against Cardiff City on Wednesday night.

A previous defeat at Blackburn Rovers slowed down Brentford’s steady ascent up the Championship table but last time out at Griffin Park, The Bees trounced poor Luton Town 7-0 and having won 3 of their last 4 matches at home in the second tier, they look fairly well set for further success in this upcoming clash.

Earlier wins against Millwall 3-2 and Reading 1-0 have helped lift Brentford to within striking distance of the Championship play-off pack, and having suffered just 3 defeats out of their last 21 matches overall at home in the Championship, not many teams come away from Griffin Park with a result.

It’s true that Cardiff City have won the last 3 encounters on the trot against Brentford, but the visitors have gained just 1 away win all season to date…

Onto Cardiff City then, and the visitors sit just one league position and 1 point above Brentford ahead of this important clash in the nation’s capital on Wednesday night thanks to picking up a third win on the trot on Saturday when they registered a 3-2 home win against hapless Barnsley.

The win over Barnsley followed earlier victories against Stoke City and Nottingham Forest as The Bluebirds are starting to build some momentum under former Millwall manager, Neil Harris, but their recent form will be tested by this away trip to Brentford.

With just 1 away win from their 10 matches on the road so far this season, The Bluebirds seemingly have their work cut out if they’re to get anything out of this clash, while the bigger picture shows that the Welsh club have collected just 3 away wins out of their last 15 matches on their travels in the Championship.

In addition, having kept just 4 clean sheets from these last 15 away matches, Cardiff City’s defence will come under very close scrutiny from Brentford, particularly from forward Watkins who has bagged 12 goals already this campaign.

Brentford therefore look the more likely for the points here.
