Brentford will continue their season with their twice-suspended fixture against Bristol City next on the agenda. The Bees extended their winning run at home to four successive Sky Bet Championship games with a 7-2 victory over Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday. Bristol City are the next team to come to West London for a game that will kick-off at 7.45pm on Wednesday, 3 February.
The sides were due to meet on Saturday, 2 January and then on Tuesday 13 January but neither game was able to take place. The original game had to be suspended as Covid-19 symptoms had been noted in the City squad. Due to the New Year Bank Holiday closure of the testing laboratory, Bristol City were unable to arrange the testing of the entire squad and backroom staff ahead of the match. The game was then suspended again last week and scheduled for a third time before it was confirmed for Wednesday as it will be shown live on Sky Sports.
The win over Wycombe on Saturday took The Bees up to this in the Championship table. Brentford have games in hand on the two teams above them. Norwich City top the table and are six points ahead of The Bees while Swansea City sit second and have two points more. Brentford also have the best goal difference in the division. Watford could climb in to the top two with a significant win over Queens Park Rangers this evening.
Bristol City were beaten by Derby County on Saturday and have 39 points from their 27 games so far. They six places and nine points adrift of Brentford and have played a game more. They are also on an inconsistent run having won three and lost six of their last nine league games.
They are, however, making progress in the Emirates FA Cup. City have beaten Portsmouth and Millwall in the cup so far and face Sheffield United in the last 16 next week. City have won five of their 13 away games in the league so far and also won at Millwall last week in the cup.
The match kicks-off at 7.45pm on Wednesday and will, unfortunately, be behind closed doors. It will, however, be available live on Sky Sports. As per Club communication, those that froze their Season Tickets will be able to watch on iFollow Brentford. See more here.
