After back-to-back home draws, Brentford are back on their travels on Saturday afternoon. The Bees extended their unbeaten run to ten as they drew 0-0 with Derby County last night. The next game on the schedule is Nottingham Forest and Brentford head to The City Ground on Saturday, 12 December, for a match that will kick-off at 3pm.
Brentford will be looking for a third straight away win when they head to Forest. The Bees have beaten Barnsley and Rotherham United away from home in their last two away fixtures. The ongoing ten-match unbeaten run includes four away games and The Bees have taken ten points from those fixtures.
Brentford sit seventh in the table after the successive draws. They are three points behind second-placed AFC Bournemouth and the teams in third to sixth, the Play-Off places, are all two points ahead of The Bees. Stoke City are only behind The Bees on goal difference and the teams from second to eighth are separated by three points.
Nottingham Forest are not having a good campaign. They missed out on a place in the Play-Offs last season due to an incredible goal difference swing as they were heavily beaten at home on the final day of the season by Stoke. Swansea City took the top six spot with an equally unlikely large win away at Reading.
Forest lost their first four games this season, a run that prompted a change in manager with Chris Hughton taking charge. They won three and lost just one of their next seven but have now lost five, and taken one point, in the last six. Two of Forest's three wins this term have come at home and they have lost only one of their last six at The City Ground but they currently sit 21st in the table, outside of the relegation zone by one point.
Nottingham is currently under tier three Covid-19 regulations so Saturday's match will, unfortunately, be behind closed doors. It will, however, be available live on iFollow Brentford. As per the EFL communication on the broadcast arrangements for the new season, all of a team's games not selected for live coverage by Sky Sports will only be available on that platform.

The announcement here also confirms that a team's away matches can only be purchased on a game-by game basis. Fans that want to watch will need to sign up for iFollow and pay £10 to tune in (£7 for international fans). Buy your Match Pass and watch the game as we take on Forest.
