Brentford vs Preston North End Match Preview

9 February 2018

The Lilywhites head to the capital once again this weekend as we face up against Dean Smith’s Brentford at Griffin Park.

The Bees have once again impressed this season with their style of play and attacking intentions, with stats showing they have the highest efforts on goal in the top four divisions.

North End will be looking to pick up their first win in the Hounslow area since Neil Mellor’s brace and a third from Iain Hume gave Phil Brown’s side a 3-1 win back in 2011.

They are also looking for their third win in a row, to keep the pressure on the top six, with Alex Neil’s men currently three points off the Play-Off positions going into the latest round of Sky Bet Championship fixtures.

With Brentford’s progress on their Lionel Road site for their new stadium, this could be one of the last opportunities to head to Griffin Park, so join what is set to be more than 1,000 North Enders heading down to London once again.
