Nottm Forest v Brentford – Football & Racing News – Star Sports

In the only Sunday fixture in the Premier League this weekend, Nottingham Forest take on Brentford at the City Ground.

It has been a bit of a mixed bag so far for Forest this season in the Premier League with Steve Cooper’s team taking away seven points from their opening six league fixtures.

There have been some impressive results along the way, particularly their 1-0 away win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, but did suffer defeat in their most recent outing; a 2-0 loss to reigning champions Manchester City.

Brentford will be keen to put things right on Sunday as they come into this fixture having lost back-to-back games in the Premier League.

Their most recent defeat, a 3-1 home defeat to struggling Everton, will have come as a shock and will have been particularly disappointing for Thomas Frank.

There are still key players missing; namely star striker Ivan Toney who is suspended until January for breaching betting rules. However, the Bees will be keen to get back to winning ways to stop this blip turning into a rut.

Both of these sides know where the back of the net is but can also be prone to conceding at the other end. Both teams have found the back of the net in four of Forest’s six league games so far this season and Brentford’s usual defensive solidity seems to have fallen away slightly in their games.

For those reasons, I like the look of both teams to score at 4/5 with
