The Brentford vs Nottm Forest live stream will have a huge impact on the relegation battle, with both teams looking over their shoulders. The match is also set to herald the return of a star center forward — and you can watch it from anywhere with a VPN.
The big news for Brentford is that Ivan Toney is now able to return after an eight-month ban for gambling violations. Boss Thomas Frank had already confirmed that the striker would start and captain the Bees. There is no doubt Toney’s presence will be a huge boost to a team that has been struggling for a large part of the season, but his match sharpness remains a doubt. Yoane Wissa is away on AFCON duty.
Nottm Forest go into the weekend just one place and one point ahead of their rivals, and in the better form, having beaten Newcastle and Man Utd in their last two Premier League outings. They also overcame Blackpool after after extra time in a midweek FA Cup replay. Will the extra rest help their opponents, particularly as the Tricky Trees have a number of players at the Africa Cup of Nations?
Here’s how they line up:
Brentford: Flekken, Pinnock, Roerslev, Collins, Mee, Jensen, Janelt, Damsgaard, Lewis-Potter, Maupay, Toney
Nottm Forest: Turner, Tavares, Murrilo, Omobamidele, Montiel, Danilo, Mangala, Hudson-Odoi, Yates, Dominguez, Wood

How to watch the Brentford vs Nottm Forest live stream wherever you are
The Brentford vs Nottm Forest live stream will be shown on many different channels across the world, but what if you're not in your home country and want to watch it on your usual service?
The answer is to use a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN will let you tune into your home coverage from wherever you are — meaning that if you're abroad, you can use one of the best VPN services to watch the games live as if you were in your lounge.
Our favorite right now is ExpressVPN, thanks to its combination of superb speed, great customer service and excellent device support. It also offers a no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee, so you could check it out without having to sign up long-term.
Using a VPN is incredibly simple.
1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.
2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance, if you're in the U.K. and want to view a U.S. service, you'd select U.S. from the list.
3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to Peacock or another service and watch the game.
