THE PREDICTION

A huge clash awaits at the top of the table as league leaders Norwich host second placed Brentford. Thomas Frank’s Bees have responded well to losing three Championship games in a row, bouncing back to win their last two. Norwich however, have established a lead of seven points at the top of the table, having won their last five league matches. The Canaries don’t have to take any risks in this game with a draw perfectly fine for them. Brentford however, will be forced to impose themselves on Norwich offensively, pushing bodies forwards in a bid to score. Whilst this may lead to them finding the net, it also leaves them vulnerable at the back with the hosts more than capable of cutting them open as a result. Therefore, regardless of the final outcome the smart play here may well be both teams to score.
