Brentford may need to display some of the grit and determination that has seen them impress in the cup competitions when hosting Sheffield Wednesday in front of the television cameras on Sunday.
Andy Scott’s team have collected only one point from their opening four League One outings this season, but have yet to be defeated in reaching the third round of the Carling Cup and round two of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
Brentford are 12/5 to claim their first three points of the campaign against the current league leaders, who have started the season impressively with three wins from their four league fixtures.
Colchester are the only team to have gained a result off of Alan Irvine’s team in a 1-1 draw and the manager has been particularly outspoken in his praise for his midfielders, who have done their share of scoring so far.
Giles Coke has found the target in the last two league games and he is 10/3 to score at any time against Brentford.
Strikers Neil Mellor and Clinton Morrison also have two league goals each and are both 5/1 to break the deadlock at Brentford.
The last showdown between the two teams came in the 2005 League One play-offs, with Sheffield Wednesday winning both legs of the semi-final.
In fact, Brentford have failed to win in their last six home meetings, with the Owls 11/10 to collect the three points or 12/5 to extend this record by leaving Griffin Park with a draw.
Sheffield Wednesday won 2-1 on their last visit to Brentford and a repeat is 8/1. See the whole correct scoreline market.
