Brentford won the London derby against Fulham easily (1:4) having Stuart Dallas in a great day. With two goals in 24′ and 58′ Dallas gave a very important lead for Brentford, while Fulham got back in the match with a penalty by McCormack, they asked for a second penalty later, but Brentford took a very important victory thanks to goals from Alan Judge and Jota.
With this victory Brentford returned to the positions of playoffs and coach Mark Warburton stressed that his team have the situation on their own hands. They do not need to look at what the other teams are doing at this moment, they have no reason to worry, and I think that if they will manage to win at least all their home games, they will enter playoffs. No new problems with injuries or suspensions, so changed are not expected for the match against Nottingham.
Wolves were more determined to win by Nottingham and took the victory with the score of 1:2. Although Nottingham got stronger in the game, Wolves scored early in the second half with Benik Afobe, Nottingham tried to react, but Wolves won a penalty and made the 0:2, while Nottingham only managed to reduce to 1:2 in injury time with a goal by Blackstock.
This was the first home defeat of Nottingham, since they got Dougie Freedman as a coach. Of course this defeat had no significant effect, since the Forest has already been out of any target. Key striker Britt Assombalonga, key midfielder and captain of the team Chris Cohen and main striker Matty Fryatt will all miss the game. Logically, Friedman will refresh the lineup.
Brentford fights for its presence in the playoffs, something that is already lost for Nottingham. With this in mind, and the fact that Brentford is coming from a great victory to the London derby against Fulham, I expect Brentford to win this game difficult or not.
