Match preview: Forest vs Brentford in association with Football Index

11 December 2020

Check out all you need to know ahead of Nottingham Forest's clash against Brentford on Saturday, in association with Football Index.

The Reds return to The City Ground to face Brentford on Saturday (kick-off 3pm) looking for some home comforts after two tough away trips.

Defeats came against high-flying duo Reading and Norwich but Chris Hughton's men will be hoping to build on the positives from the Norwich loss when they take on The Bees.

After play-off heartbreak last season, Brentford have bounced back and will provide a tough test on Trentside.
