Our match prediction:
As expected, Brighton experienced all sorts of problems in a 2-0 defeat to Newcastle United on Matchday 5. The Seagulls are eager to return to winning ways in the Championship and they are eyeing their third consecutive win at home ground. Brighton outclassed the likes of Nottingham Forest and Rotherham United in previous two games at their American Express Community Stadium and it is no surprise they are considered favourites on paper to emerge triumphant in Saturday’s football game against Brentford. The Bees have been playing below expectations in the new Championship campaign and seeing that they were beaten by Huddersfield Town and Rotherham United in last two away fixtures in the English second tier, we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from the American Express Community Stadium clash. A man to watch in the home team will be Antony Knochaert, who has netted three goals this season to date.
Highligted Player (Sam Baldock):
Sam Baldock is an English footballer who plays as a striker for Brighton. Baldock was born in Buckingham, England on 15 March 1989 and he began his senior career at Milton Keynes Dons. After spending six years at Stadium mk, Baldock signed a four-year contract with West Ham United on 26 August, 2011. However, after failing to impress in the 2011/2012 campaign, he was sold to Bristol City at the end of the season. Sam Baldock scored 34 goals in 83 appearances for the club and in 2014 he joined his current club Brighton. The English attacker signed for the Seagulls for an undisclosed fee, which was believed to be in the region of £2m. Sam Baldock has a contract with Brighton, which expiries on 30 June, 2018. It has to be noted that he represented England at the 2009 FIFA U20 World Cup in Egypt. His main position is centre forward, but he is capable of playing at both left and right back as well.
Highlighted Team (Brentford):
Based in London, Brentford compete in the Championship and they were founded in 1898. Griffin Park has been the home ground of the club since 1904 and the capacity of the venue is 12,300. The Bees have yet to play in the Premier League and it has to be noted that they made it to the FA Cup sixth round on four occasions (1937/1938, 1945/1946,1948/1949, 1988/1989). Brentford played in the League Cup round 4 in the 1982/1983 and 2010/2011 season and that is the club’s biggest success in the competition. Brentford’s main rivals are Fulham and Queens Park Rangers and they take on each other in the West London Derby. The rivalry with the Cottagers is probably the biggest and you should bear in mind that the clashes between the two teams have always been marred by crowd violence. The colour of Brenftord’s shirts is red and white and they wear black shorts.
