Bees to move into automatic promotion spots

The race for promotion to the Premier League looks set to be as thrilling as ever. One of the teams hoping to win promotion from the Championship is Brentford. The Bees suffered a 1-0 play-off final defeat against Fulham last season.

Thomas Frank’s team are once again in the hunt and could move into the top-two in the Championship with a win over Bristol City on Wednesday night.

A 2-1 home win over Bournemouth last time out means that the home team are unbeaten in their last 15 matches in the Championship. The win over the Cherries was also the Bees fourth victory in their last five league outings.

Brentford have been fairly prolific of late in the second tier, scoring at least two goals in four of their last five Championship matches.

The home side is unbeaten in nine league games on home soil, although five of those undefeated games have finished in draws.

Bristol City are currently tenth place in the table and will be looking to challenge for the play-off spots this season. The Robins booked their place in the FA Cup fourth round last time out, beating Portsmouth 2-1.

However, their recent Championship form has been poor, as the visitors have lost four of their last five league outings. The visitors league games have been relatively low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in five of their last seven matches.

City have struggled on their travels of late, as they have lost four of their last five away games in the top-flight. A lack of clean sheets has been a major issue for the Robins on their travels, as they have kept just one clean sheet in their last ten away outings in the Championship.

Forebet predicts that Brentford will move into the automatic promotion spots in the Championship with a victory in a high-scoring clash.
