Nottingham Forest look to continue their good form against Brentford at Griffin Park in their midweek Championship clash.
The Reds are unbeaten in their last six games as Sabri Lamouchi’s side look to cement their places in the play-off spots.
Brentford are only one point behind Forest in fifth place but The Bees are unbeaten in their last eight games and have not lost at Griffin Park since 2 November.
In the pre-match press conference, Lamouchi said that there are no fresh injuries but new signing Adama Diakhaby is ready for team selection after his arrival from Huddersfield.
Lamouchi said: “We’ve not entered the ‘money-time’ of the season yet but we’re in the race. It is an exciting game for both teams tomorrow.”
Despite faulting against Reading last time out, Lamouchi said: “My job was to pick the players up and say ‘keep working hard, keep fighting and keep battling for every single point’. That’s what we will do when we go to Brentford tomorrow.”
Brentford have got the top scorer in the league in Ollie Watkins who has netted 18 goals this season, averaging a goal every 140 minutes.
Speaking after The Bees FA Cup match defeat to Leicester, manager Thomas Frank said: “We were brave on the ball. We wanted to play forward. We pressed high. We did everything we wanted to do as Brentford Football Club.”
Only Leeds and West Brom have got more points away from home this season than Forest, and the Reds will be hoping this form continues.
Both Forest and Brentford’s head to head record is incredibly even at 12 wins each and eight draws.
Sky bet odds: Brentford win 8/13, draw 11/4, Nottingham Forest win 19/4
