Following Saturday's late drama, we welcome Birmingham City to Griffin Park this evening as the Sky Bet Championship action comes thick and fast. It promises to be another enthralling evening but if you need any more persuading why to join us, here are our five reasons.
Griffin Park under the lights
There’s something magical in the air on midweek matchdays at Griffin Park. The floodlights rising above the rows of terraced housing act as a beacon to Bees fans for miles around, drawing them in after a day’s work. Then there’s the atmosphere and electricity in the air which makes a night-time trip to TW8 one not to be missed.
Still unbeaten at home
We might have left it late on Saturday, but Yoann Barbet’s header means that Fortress Griffin Park still hasn’t been conquered! The Frenchman’s goal extended our unbeaten sequence to six this campaign, and 11 in total, stretching back nearly seven months.
Back in the top six

The top half won't change whatever happens in that game: We have new leaders in @WBA and both @NorwichCityFC and @BrentfordFC move into the top six. pic.twitter.com/mDTjpB9GWC
Not only did Yoann’s goal ensure we remain unbeaten at home it also lifted us back into the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off places. And with just five points separating second and 15th in the table, three points tonight could see us climb back into the top two!
Birmingham City, we’ve been here before
A Tuesday night, under the lights, with Birmingham City the visitors, remember what happened last time! It was a night not to be forgotten by those in red and white as The Bees ran riot at Griffin Park, netting five without reply to secure our joint-biggest win back in the second tier. Could lightning strike twice?
It’s not just on the pitch where there will be entertainment tonight as Oktoberfest, the German folk festival, returns to Griffin Park. To get into the festival spirit we will have German beers and food on sale around the ground and we’ll be treated to a traditional Oompah Band before the match and at half-time. Prost!
Join us tonight from £28 adults, £22 seniors, £20 young persons, and £6 juniors. Tickets will be on General Sale right up to kick-off.
