Brentford hosts Bristol City in round 23 of the English Championship. The match will be played on Wednesday, January 13th at Brentford Community Stadium (London)
Brentford was unable to resist only Tottenham. The Bees played excellently in the League Cup, where they reached the semifinals for the first time in history. Truth be told, the powerful Tottenham beat Brentford without any problems (2-0). But Thomas Frank's charges did not seem particularly upset - they played their role as a football Cinderella with dignity. Moreover, the Bees eliminated Middlesbrough from the FA Cup last weekend. But, perhaps, their main task is success in the Championship. There Brentford has not lost since October and won four of its last five matches. But there are enough competitors, so it is advisable to win now in order to keep up with them.

Bristol City keeps at its usual level. The Robins are perceived as a strong middle peasant in the Championship. Sometimes they are aiming for something more and are seriously fighting for promotion. In 2008, they lost only in the final of the playoffs. But in the last draw, Bristol City took a modest 12th place. And now it hasn't really changed anything. It seems that Dean Holden, who received the status of head coach after a couple of years of work as an assistant, managed to start powerfully - the club won four times in a row. But then his team quickly lost ground and gradually lowered to the equator of the standings. And the results are getting worse in winter. Bristol suffered four defeats in the last five rounds of the Championship and managed to beat only Wycombe, which is the worst representative of the division. The Robin won at home (2-1) thanks to the decisive goal scored by Diedhiou in the 87th minute. But even Bradley's own goal did not prevent Luton from beating the Robins with the same score before the New Year.
Brentford gave a head start to its opponents, but only because of the workload in the cups. Now the Bees need to catch up and outrank their competitors, so they must win at home. Bristol City is hardly ready to offer resistance now, so we are waiting for the victory of the hosts.
Prediction for the match: Brentford to win
