Fortress Griffin Park remains impregnable after five wins from five for Dean Smith’s men on home soil this campaign, Wigan Athletic the latest to leave West London pointless. The Royals too haven’t enjoyed their recent trips to West London either, with just one win in five, so The Bees will be keen to extend both those runs to six tomorrow.
Back on track
Tomorrow’s visit from The Royals kicks off another busy run of three Sky Bet Championship games in seven days. Birmingham City head to TW8 on Tuesday before our televised trip to Leeds United next weekend. First up it’s Reading though and, after just one point from two away games, The Bees will want your support to start an important week on the right foot and get back into the Play-Off places.
Bring the noise
8,500 Bees fans out-sung 40,000 Arsenal fans at The Emirates on Wednesday night with Dean Smith’s side pushing The Gunners all the way in the Carabao Cup. With The Royals set to be backed by a sold out away end on Saturday, Griffin Park will be rocking with a derby atmosphere this weekend as ticket sales head towards 11,000.
Right on target
Averaging 17 shots a game, it’s no surprise that only one side in the Sky Bet Championship has found the target more times than The Bees on home soil this campaign. The second tier’s leading marksman, Neal Maupay, has also enjoyed his outings at Griffin Park this term, finding the net, on average, every 46 minutes so far.
