Brentford have played three of their last four games away from home but will be back in West London for back-to-back games this week. The first of those is coming on Tuesday when Swansea City come to town. The game, which will kick-off at 7pm, is the sixth of seven in an intense 21 day period and The Bees have taken ten points from the first five so far.
Brentford come in to the game having taken four points from their last two at home - beating Coventry City and drawing, unluckily, with Norwich City. The Bees also won at Luton Town yesterday to climb in to the top ten in the Sky Bet Championship after nine bames. This will be Brentford's fifth home fixture of the season and they won two and drawn one of their four at their new stadium so far.
The next visitors to our new stadium will be the team in second place in the Sky Bet Championship. Swansea have beaten Stoke City and Blackburn Rovers on their own home turf this week and have climbed in to the automatic promotion spaces in the early table with 18 points from their nine games. They are four points behind leaders Reading and are unbeaten away from home so far this term with two wins and two draws.
Swansea were, memorably, the last side to play a competitive First Team fixture at Griffin Park. They came to TW8 with a 1-0 lead in the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off Semi-Final. But Brentford won the second leg 3-1 to book an, ultimately fruitless, trip to Wembley. Swansea look set to challenge for promotion again this season after finishing sixth last term. They are currently seven places and four points ahead of The Bees.
