Our prediction for this Championship match:
Thanks to a come-from-behind win over Bristol City Wolverhampton cemented top position in the Championship standings and, no doubt, they are high on confidence ahead of Tuesday’s football match against Brentford. The Wolves are undisputedly ready for a return to the Premier League, but they can’t afford any complacency in the remainder of the season. Wolverhampton are a real force to be reckoned with at home and despite the fact that defender Danny Batth misses the Brentford game through suspension, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. The Bees, on the other hand, are on a three-game winning run in the Championship, but they will have a big fish to fry against the league leaders in their first game of the year. You should bear in mind that the Wolves are after their tenth home win of the season, speaking of league fixtures.
Highlighted Player (Ben Marshall):
Ben Marshall began his youth career at Manchester United back in 1997 at the age of six. The winger, who is capable of playing at right back as well, was born on 29 March 1991 and he signed for Stoke City on 8 July 2009. After spending three years on loan at Northampton Town, Cheltenham Town, Carlisle United and Sheffield Wednesday, he was sold to Leicester City on transfer deadline day (31 January 2012) for a fee of £750k. Marshall scored seven goals in 56 appearances for the King Power Stadium outfit and on 28 August 2013 he joined Blackburn Rovers. Marshall played 44 matches for Blackburn in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and it has to be noted that he scored six goals for the Ewood Park outfit in all competitions. The winger made his debut for England U21 on 6 September against Azerbaijan. In the 2010/2011 season Ben Marshall won the Football League Trophy with Carlisle United and that is considered the biggest success of his career.
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 Brentford’s shirts is red and white and they wear black shorts.
