Match Preview

  • Brentford are now four matches unbeaten (W2, D2), but a concern is that they have conceded a first-half goal in three of those matches. Nevertheless, Brentford have the best first-half record in the Championship (W13, D13, L7), and they have lost just one league clash this season when scoring first (W14, D3).
  • Though the ‘Bees’ have won just once in their last four at home overall (D1, L2), only three other teams in the league have more home points than Brentford. However, they failed to keep a clean sheet in four of their last five league victories here. Also, their last three home league wins have seen them score at least three goals, and lead inside 25 minutes.
  • Blackburn Rovers have lost just once in seven matches (W4, D2). They’ve won their last two matches without conceding, and the same can be said about six of their previous eight wins. Three of their last four games contained fewer than 2.5 goals, whilst only one of those saw a goal scored before the 30th minute.
  • Rovers are unbeaten in their last three away (W2, D1), but they haven’t gone four without defeat since April 2018. Seeing their Championship away encounters this season averaging 3.13 goals, the East Lancashire outfit have failed to score just twice away in league action this term.
  • Players to watch: Ollie Watkins has scored in each of Brentford’s past five league wins, including the final goal on three occasions.
  • Rovers’ resident ‘ruffian’ Darragh Lenihan has received the most league yellow cards for Blackburn this season, averaging one every three appearances.
  • Stat attack: Brentford have scored 21 league goals before the 30th minute this season (38.89%).
  • Blackburn have won five of the last six H2H meetings, with four victories yielding a one-goal margin.
  • ‘Rovers’ have either been winning or losing at half-time in 12 away league fixtures this season (75%).
