As Brentford strive to earn more points, another tough task is on the horizon with the Bees taking on Sheffield United at Griffin Park, where the draw is priced at almost 5/2 at LeoVegas SPORT.
Brentford stood up to second-placed Middlesbrough firmly, registering five more attempts on goal than their opponent, and nearly forcing an equaliser after Alan Judge's 75th minute strike offered a foot-hold. Brentford had more possession, more shots, more passes and more corners but could not find that little bit of extra quality to earn a credible draw.
Thomas Frank put the defeat down to "small margins" and was also pleased to see the return of injured players in a difficult time for the club. The young squad is full of promise and Frank is confident of significant improvements in the upcoming matches.
Sheffield United sit in fifth place, and have managed two draws on the trot, falling to a late leveller at Rotherham on Saturday. They are the type of side which Brentford can dominate, especially if Brentford can mirror their second half rally against Middlesbrough.
Ollie Watkins is priced at 15/2 to get himself back in about the goals by netting the opening goal of the game, with Alan Judge available at 12/5 to score anytime against the Blades. One of the best value bets looks to be the drawwith both teams scoring. We'll give you that at 33/10 while a 1-0 home victory is also now available at 15/2.
Leo's Prediction: Brentford 1-0 Sheffield United, priced at 15/2.
Goal scorer: Alan Judge to score anytime at 12/5.
Leo's Tip: You get the feeling Brentford are getting close to turning the corner. One home win under the lights can turn the season around!
