The postponement of the Cardiff fixture gave The Bees the opportunity to rest and regroup, while shifting focus to the important away clash at Burton on Tuesday night. With Burton struggling in the Championship this season, Brentford are priced at 4/5 to bounce back from the Leeds defeat with a victory.
Tuesday is the first of two games on the road this week, with the team heading to Millwall on Saturday before returning to Griffin Park for two home games in four days next week against Cardiff City and then Middlesbrough.
Nigel Clough’s Albion have been inconsistent this season, and have registered a win, draw and loss in their last three games. February saw Burton earn respectable goalless draws against Ipswich Town and Nottingham Forest, while they also took all three points away from home against Barnsley.
Brentford will be looking to flush the Leeds defeat out of their system and are priced at 11/8 to get off to a good start and win the first half. Sergi Canos netted twice when the teams met in March last year and he is 7/1 to score first this time round at LeoVegas SPORT.
Ollie Watkins will be set on adding to his 10 goals this season and is 13/2 to score first or 13/5 to net anytime.
If Dean Smith’s men are to get back to winning ways another strong effort is going to be needed from a backline which has already kept four clean sheet in the Championship in 2018. Can Brentford register their fifth league clean sheet of the year? The Bees are priced at 2/1 to win the game to nil.
Leo’s Prediction: Burton 0-2 Brentford, 15/2
Outside Punt: Brentford to win both halves at 22/5
