Brentford’s season has been one of disappointment with the west London side hopeful of making a genuine push for promotion but failing miserably in this regard. Indeed the Bees are languishing in the bottom half of the Championship table and will be eager to bounce back from their recent defeat to Huddersfield Town.
The Terriers came to Griffin Park on Saturday afternoon and boosted their promotion bid by taking all three points back home with them. This defeat came on the back of a decent run for Brentford in which they won three and drew one of their previous four games and we believe that they can bounce back on Tuesday evening by claiming a maximum points haul at the expense of struggling Wolverhampton wanderers.
Paul Lambert’s men have never been far from the relegation zone since the start of the season and they remain dangerously close to the bottom three as we head into Tuesday evening’s round of fixtures. The West Midlands side do enjoy a distinct advantage over the sides around them in that they enjoy a couple of games-in-hand over their principal relegation rivals and this should count for something – as long as they actually manage to grab some points from them.
Going on Wolves’ form this season we’re not so confident of their chances. Lambert’s side managed a much-needed win on Saturday afternoon but that was against rock-bottom side Rotherham United and prior to this Wolves managed just a solitary point from their previous six Championship outings. Indeed Brentford are going to provide tougher opposition than the Millers and we don’t envisage the home side being too troubled by a Wolves outfit which have failed to find the net in four of their last seven games in all competitions.
