The Bees have the chance to take top spot in the Championship if they can secure three points at Reading on Wednesday night.
Stoke were the last Championship team to beat Brentford, back at the end of October, since then they’ve gone on an 20-game unbeaten run in the league and can take advantage of Norwich’s recent slump in form to reach the summit.
They’ve been winning with some style lately too, banging in 14 goals in their last three games.
Reading are in pretty good form too, unbeaten in seven in the league (W4 D3) but on their day Brentford are the best team in the division.
Leicester City (7.30pm)
Brendan Rodgers enjoyed an excellent cup record in Scotland when boss at Celtic, sweeping all before him and he’s led Leicester to the quarter-finals last season before losing out to Chelsea due to an under-par performance. He did field a strong line-up so hopefully he can be reiled on to treat the visit of Brighton with the respect it deserves.
The good news is that Jamie will feature for the Foxes as he continues to work his way back to full-fitness. Rodgers has admitted he’ll make changes but promised a strong XI.
The Seagulls still have a list of injuries to contend with and may not have the same luxury as Leicester when it come to resting key men. Therefore a home win at 17/20 is worth adding to the acca.
Games in hand are builing up for Inverness but they’d rather have the points on the board than having to squeeze in matches to catch up with the rest of the league. They’re just three points off the bottom, but with four games on most other teams in the Championship they could potentially be second top if they win them all.
They need to start soon though because too many draws have hampered their promotion ambitions.
Internacional (Brazil Série A – 10pm)
Internacional are engaged in a title fight with Flamengo as the Briazilian top flight draws to an exciting climax. They’re a point clear and with a game in hand could extend their lead on Wednesday.
The Colorado haven’t tasted defeat in the league since November 22nd, a 2-1 home loss to Fluminese which remains their only defeat at Estádio Beira-Rio.
Visitors Sport Recife have won just 13 points from 17 away matches and have failed to find the net in ten of those, making them the lowest scoring team in the division.
- Brentford 1/1
- Leicester City 17/20
