Head-to-Head


This will be the first-ever meeting between the two sides. 

Brentford Form


Brentford continued their unbeaten start to the Premier League with a 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace. The result followed a 2-0 home win against Arsenal. 

Thomas Frank’s side edged Palace with 14-7 shots, but the West Londoners couldn’t break the deadlock. Bryan Mbeumo came closest, hitting the crossbar. 

Brentford are in good form at home. They are unbeaten in 12 of their last 13 at the Brentford Community Stadium.

Brentford Injuries & Team News


Midfielder Joshua Dasilva is ruled out. Mathias Jensen could be in contention following his recent injury.

Thomas Frank is likely to rotate his squad. Yoane Wissa (forward) and Alvaro Fernandez (goalkeeper) should make their debuts. 

Forest Green Form 


Forest Green maintained their 100% winning record in League One with a 6-3 win against Crawley.

Rovers had 19 shots and 64% possession. Nicky Cadden scored a hat-trick and Matt Stevens, Jamile Matt added and Jake Young completed the rout. 

Forest Green have scored 15 goals in their first five matches. They progressed in the EFL Cup after beating Championship side Bristol City. 

Forest Green Injuries & Team News


Jordan Moore-Taylor and Josh March have recently recovered from respective injuries. They could make the starting XI against Brentford.

Verdict

Brentford’s squad rotation will disrupt their consistent start to the season. Forest Green are in fine form and should hold the Bees. I am tipping a 1-1 draw.
