The second half of the Sky Bet Championship season is now underway and Brentford have the first of two away games in five days next on their agenda. The Bees started the concluding portion of the season with a 1-1 draw away at Swansea City last night. The point kept The Bees fourth in the table and they face Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday, 30 January, in a game that will kick-off at 3pm.
The draw ended a run of four straight league wins for The Bees and leaves them two points behind Swansea, who sit second, with a game in hand. Watford are in third place on the same number of points as Swansea and have played two games more than The Bees. Leaguer leaders Norwich City are six points clear at the moment.
Wycombe come to West London for the second time this season for the third meeting between the teams in five months. The league meeting between the teams was drawn 0-0 and was a largely forgettable affair. The other game was more memorable.
Wycombe were the first visitors to our new home in a competitive game at the start of September. Ethan Pinnock put Brentford in front in a Carabao Cup First Round tie but Daryl Horgan equalised and the tie went to penalties. Brentford won through and went on a run that took them to the Semi-Finals against Tottenham Hotspur.
Wycombe have also faced Tottenham this term, losing to them in an Emirates FA Cup Fourth Round tie on Monday. They are currrently bottom of the Championship, having taken 15 points from 23 games. But they have games in hand on the sides above them and no team has played fewer games than The Chairboys.
That loss was only their third game of the year and two of them have been in the FA Cup. They lost to Middlesbrough in their last league match and a win over Cardiff City in the game before that was their only victory in 13 Championship fixtures. They have one win and five points from 11 away games so far.
The match will, unfortunately, be behind closed doors. It will, however, be available live on iFollow Brentford.
