Our football match prediction:
Brentford will be aiming to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Sheffield United when they square off against Nottingham Forest at their Griffin Park. The Bees suffered a 1-0 loss to Chris Wilder’s troops on the opening day of the season, but it has to be noted that they failed to turn their dominance into goals. Brentford, though, are a real force to be reckoned with at home and they will be looking to record their first win of the season on Saturday afternoon when they take on Nottingham Forest in their first home game of the season. The Bees aim to book their place in the Championship play-offs and they need to make a flying start to the season if they are to meet the goal. The Reds recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over newcomers Millwall at the weekend, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Saturday’s football match against Brentford.
Highligted Player (Josh McEachran):
Josh McEachran is a professional football player who was born on 1 March, 1993. The English footballer plays as central midfielder, but he is capable of playing as both attacking and defensive midfielder as well. McEachran is a product of Chelsea youth school, but he made no more than 11 appearances for the senior squad at Stamford Bridge. After spending several seasons on loan at Swansea City, Middlesbrough, Watford, Wigan and Vitesse, he signed a four-year deal with Brentford on 10 July 2015 for an undisclosed fee. Just 15 days later he suffered a fractured foot and, as a result, he was out of contention for three months. McEachran made his Brentford debut on 15 December in a 2-1 win over Reading and he went on to make 14 appearances for the Bees in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign. Josh was born in Kirtlington, Oxfordshire, England, but his parents are Scottish. The Brentford midfielder was in a relationship with English actress Brooke Vincent.
Highlighted Team (Nottingham Forest):
Nottingham Forest, the club that are often referred to as Forest, were formed in 1865. They have been playing their home games at the City Ground since 1898 and the capacity of the stadium is 30,445. Nottingham Forest are regarded as one of the greatest English clubs as they won the European Cup on two occasions. In 1979 Forest outplayed Malmo (1-0) at the Olympiastadion in Munich in the final of the elite competition, with the team beating Hamburg in 1980 in the title game at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu (1-0). Nottingham Forest won the national championship in the 1977/1978 season, with the team finishing the campaign seven points clear of second-placed Liverpool. To make things even better for the fans, the City Ground outfit clinched the FA Cup trophies in 1898 and 1959. Derby County are regarded as Forest’s bitterest rivals and the two local rivals contest in the East Midlands derby. In their first ever meeting in the local derby Forest recorded a 3-2 win over Derby County.
