Brentford were once again undone in the first half against Hull City, owing to two goals from Fraizer Campbell in the North East. The Bees are now heavily in need of three points, and take on Bolton at Griffin Park, where a 2-0 home win is priced at 6/1 at LeoVegas SPORT.
Statistically, Brentford appeared to have the upper hand against Hull. They enjoyed 72% of the ball - incredibly high for an away side, and managed 16 attempts as they pushed for a positive outcome. Early defensive mishaps were quickly punished by the Tigers, and those type of situations are one Thomas Frank is pushing to eradicate.
Bolton's form offers food for thought, with The Trotters failing to find a win in their last 12 games. Their last league win came back in September against Derby. They stood up well to Leeds last week, eventually falling to a 1-0 home defeat. Phil Parkinson's men sit in 23rd place, however, are only four points below Brentford. Despite only being December, this feels like a tough six pointer for both sides.
Bolton failed to register a single shot on target at home to Leeds, and this game offers the opportunity for Brentford to calm their nerves at the back. We're offering the home team to win to nil at 7/5 and you can also get the Bees to win both halves at 29/10. Past meetings also point to a Brentford win, with the Bees having won each of their last three league games against Bolton.
Leo's Prediction: Brentford 1-0 Bolton, priced at 23/4
Goal scorer: Neal Maupay is available at 3/1 to score first
