Griffin Park will be on fire on Saturday 16th March 2019 when Brentford host West Bromwich. The action will kick-off at 15.00GMT. Brentford will be looking for a golden opportunity overturn their Tuesday’s 2-0 loss to Sheffield United. However, West Bromwich is ready to humble them.
Brentford at number 14, seem to be doing relatively better of late despite a few losses here and there. They have managed to win 4 of their last 6 matches. Their last 2-0 midweek loss to Sheffield United will not deter them from forcing a draw against West Bromwich.
The 4th placed West Bromwich want to retain its position among the top six in the championship. They are not ready to let anything stand on their way for a chance for play-offs towards a stab at the Premier League next season. They have managed to wipe away their 0-4 traumatizing loss to Leeds United on 01/03/2019 to draw against Ipswich Town. Their midweek 3-0 triumph over Swansea is something they would like to build on for another victory.
