Brentford form and stats

When playing at home in the Championship, Brentford, who have the most scored goals (56) in Championship, have managed 8 wins, 5 draws and suffered 2 defeats from 15 games. Brentford has three losses from their three previous games and the tension is increasing in the dressing room for both the manager T. Frank and the players.

In their previous game, the manager T. Frank led his Brentford to a defeat in the Championship match away at Coventry City. The manager is hoping to put things right immediately here at Brentford Community Stadium. Heartbreak before that as Brentford lost 1-2 at Queens Park Rangers's place.

Some members of the home team might already be thinking of their next match, the Championship game versus Stoke City in only three days. This game is also played here at Brentford Community Stadium.

A decent goal production from Brentford in their home games so far, with 29 goals from 15 league matches. Brentford's goalkeeper has had to pick the ball out of their own net 17 times. For more goal stats, check the Statistics tab above.

Sheffield Wednesday form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Sheffield Wednesday, who have the fewest scored goals (21) in Championship, so far with only 11 points returning home. The records show 3-2-10 (win-draw-lose). The travelling fans think it's time that their travel expenses are covered with some points now, as Sheffield Wednesday have lost on their last two travels.

Sheffield aren't clicking offensively as they have gone 194 league minutes without a goal. A. Reach was the last player to find the net.

Sheffield failed to get anything from their last game, a Championship home match vs Birmingham City (placed 21st) that ended with defeat 0-1. Prior to that match, the Sheffield Wednesday manager A. Holdsworth faced defeat when travelling to Stoke City and losing 0-1.

There might be some complaints about the fixture list from the Sheffield manager A. Holdsworth as the team has another away game coming up in only three days, this time against Luton Town.

The attacking power of Sheffield when travelling is not overwhelming with 9 goals scored from 15 league matches away. Sheffield's defence is not exactly unbeatable as they have conceded 23 goals from these trips.

Head 2 Head

This is not the first time this season these parties meet, as the history books show this recent fixture: Sheffield Wednesday - Brentford 1-2. Last ten meetings between the teams: Brentford won five, Sheffield Wednesday won four and one draw. six games with over 2,5 goals, four matches with two goals or less.
