After a surprise victory over Liverpool, Nottm Forest put in a disappointing but familiar display against Arsenal and returned to the foot of the Premier League table. Conceding five goals in that fixture drew them level with Bournemouth for the leakiest defense in the division. To make matters worse, Forest’s top scorer Taiwo Awoniyi has only scored three goals this season. In all fairness, bringing in 21 new players in the summer would make it hard for even the best players to gel and Steve Cooper has used a joint third-highest 25 players this season.  This has not been helped by injuries and currently, Moussa Niakhite, Jack Colback, Omar Richards and Harry Toffolo are all long-term absentees. Although it is a largely new side, Forest can take some encouragement from the last time the Bees visited the City Ground, when they won 3-1. 

Thomas Frank’s Brentford will be disappointed with their last two results. A 1-1 draw to struggling Wolves was not ideal but the 4-0 loss to a poor Aston Villa side the game prior was very concerning for Bees fans. Facing another team in the relegation zone, Brentford will hope it is third time lucky to both inflict serious damage to a rival and move clear of any relegation questions. Although they sit 11th, the West London side are still only four points away from the drop zone. Unlike their opponents however, Brentford have had no trouble hitting the back of the net this season, with their tally of 19 goals more than double Forest’s haul. Brentford will be hoping to welcome back midfielders Mathias Jensen and Christian Norgaard from injury with three points at the City Ground. 

Brentford have been involved in some high-scoring games this season, and with Nottm Forest’s shaky defence this could be a high-octane, hell-for-leather matchup. You won’t want to miss the Nottm Forest vs Brentford live stream.

Here's how they line up: 

Nottm Forest: Henderson, Aurier, Cook, Williams, Gibbs-White, Johnson, Kouyate, Yates, Freuler, Dennis, McKenna.

Brentford: Raya, Henry, Pinnock, Jensen, Dasilva, Wissa, Mee, Mbuemo, Lewis-Potter, Janelt, Roerslev.
