After a draw with high-flying Swansea City last night, Brentford take on another of the teams above them in the table on Saturday. A late equaliser from Swansea denied Brentford the win last night after Ivan Toney's tenth goal in his last eight Sky Bet Championship games had given them a first half lead. The draw extended Brentford's run to one defeat in their last six as they face the seventh game in a 21-day period when Middlesbrough come to West London on Saturday, November 7, for a match that will kick-off at 3pm.
Brentford have taken five points from their last three at home and it has taken late equlisers from Swansea and Norwich City to prevent a clean sweep of wins. The Bees sit eighth in the Championship after the draw last night and are three places and two points worse off than Middlesbrough. Both teams could slip down the table after games this evening but are likely to be two of the top ten when they meet on Saturday.
The North East side come to West London on a fine run of form. They have not lost since the opening day of the season and have won three and drawn three of their six games in this intense period. Their only loss came away from home at Watford on the first day of the season and they have drawn three and won one, at Bristol City, since.
The match will, unfortunately, be behind closed doors. It will, however, be available live on iFollow Brentford.
