Brentford vs Nottingham Forest Predictions


Brentford have improved in the Championship recently and they are particularly strong at home. I am backing the Bees to win against a struggling Nottingham Forest with Ivan Toney to score. 

  • Brentford have won 7 of their last 8 home matches (Championship).
  • Brentford’s Ivan Toney has scored 11 goals in his last 10 starts (Championship).
  • Brentford’s Ivan Toney has scored 5 goals in his last 5 home matches (Championship).
  • Nottingham Forest have lost 3 of their last 4 matches (Championship).
  • Nottingham Forest have failed to score in 3 of their last 4 matches (Championship).

Head to Head


In 34 meetings, Brentford and Nottingham Forest have won 13 matches each with 8 draws. 

Brentford beat Forest 3-1 in the reverse fixture this season with Henrik Dalsgaard, Josh Dasilva and Ivan Toney on the scoresheet. 

Brentford Form


Brentford drew for the first time in 12 matches on Wednesday. They were held to a 2-2 draw at Derby.

Goals from Sergi Canos and Ivan Toney put the Bees 2-0 up at half time but late goals from Derby denied Brentford a fourth win in five matches.

Brentford have won three of their last five matches in the Championship and won eight of their last nine at home.

Brentford’s Ivan Toney is the top scorer in the Championship this season. He has scored 11 goals in his last 10 starts and scored five goals in his last five home matches.

Brentford Injuries & Team News


Shandon Baptiste and left-back Rico Henry are ruled out for Brentford through injury. 

Brentford captain Pontus Jansson returned for the Derby match this week. He is expected to keep his place in an unchanged starting XI. 

Nottingham Forest Form


Nottingham Forest is winless in five Championship matches following a 2-0 defeat at home to Norwich.

Forest conceded two early goals and struggled in the match, registering five shots on goal and 30% possession. 

The result was Forest’s third loss in four Championship matches and they have returned 2 points from the last 15 available.

Forest are winless in their last two away matches and have lost two of their last four on the road. Chris Hughton’s side have failed to score in three of their last four Championship games.

Nottingham Forest Injuries & Team News


Joe Worrall, winger Joe Lolley and Harry Arter are all ruled out through injury.

Anthony Knockaert and Brice Samba are expected to return after missing the Norwich match.

Chris Hughton made four changes to his starting XI for the 2-0 loss to Norwich. He could make further changes this weekend with several key players out injured.
