Brentford will be looking for a third win in seven days when they travel to Stoke City on Saturday. The Bees have beaten Coventry City and Sheffield Wednesday in the past four days and have the third of seven games in three weeks at Stoke. The win at Wednesday last night was Brentford's third of the season and first away from home and they will be looking to continue that form at Stoke in a game that kicks-off at 3pm.
Stoke were also in action last night, drawing with Barnsley. The Potters fell behind twice in the first half but were level when they had Nathan Collins sent off on the hour. The game ended as it was at that point, 2-2, as Stoke picked up their ninth point of the season. They have won two and drawn three so far this term and sit tenth in the table, three places and one point behind The Bees.
Stoke have picked up most of those points away from home, with two wins and a draw. They have drawn with Birmingham City at home and also lost to Bristol City but have had Carabao Cup success on home turf, beating Gillingham. That was part of a run that has included victories over Wolverhampton Wanderers and Aston Villa that has taken Stoke, like Brentford, to the last eight of the competition.
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.
