After two home wins in four days, Brentford are back on their travels on Wednesday, facing the only team above them in the Sky Bet Championship table. Ivan Toney scored the winner as Brentford came from behind to beat Stoke City 2-1 yesterday, following on from a 3-0 victory over Sheffield Wednesday on Wednesday. Next up for The Bees is a trip to Norfolk to face Norwich City, the league leaders.
Norwich beat Wycombe Wanderers 2-0 earlier today to extend their lead at the top of the table. They are seven points clear of Brentford, who sit second, while The Bees are three ahead of Watford, with a better goal difference. Swansea City are fourth, four points behind Brentford with two games in hand. The Welsh side are 11 points behind Norwich.
The top four all play on Wednesday night with Brentford and Norwich kicking off first, at 5.30pm, in a game that will be shown live on Sky Sports. Watford host Wycombe while Swansea travel to Stoke. That game will also be shown live by the EFL's broadcast partner.
The last two games between Norwich and Brentford have been 1-1 draws in West London. When Norwich won promotion in the 2018/19 season they beat Brentford in Norfolk to take four points from the two matches. Earlier this season Brentford had the better of the draw but were forced to a settle for a point. The Bees had a 1-0 lead going in to the final three minutes thanks to Ivan Toney but a shot from Kenny McLean that was more than a little speculative deflected in off Mads Bech Sørensen and Norwich had a share of the spoils.
The win over Wycombe today was the fifth in a row for Norwich. They lost at Swansea at the start of the month, but that was the end of the a four game run without a win in all competitions and they have been faultless since. The Canaries have won ten of 16 games at home and have only lost to Derby County at the start of October. They have only conceded nine goals at home all season.
