Brentford v Derby Live Stream – How to Watch
While it wasn’t enough to lift them out of the relegation zone, it was enough to lift them off bottom spot. The Manchester United will view that as a huge positive, but knows the hard work must continue to avoid catastrophe.
With two wins, five draws and nine losses, they now sit 23rd on 11 points.
Brentford meanwhile have enjoyed a positive start to the campaign. They sit sixth on 27 points, just four off leaders Norwich.
Thomas Frank’s men have seven wins, six draws and just three losses to their name this season.
The west London side have three wins and three draws in their last six, with Derby posting one win, two draws and three losses.
After a three-game winning run, the Bees could only draw with ten-man Blackburn on Saturday. Joe Rothwell put the visitors ahead, with Ivan Toney levelling from the spot after Darragh Lenihan saw red.
Sergi Canos then put the hosts in front, but a late Jacob Davenport strike ensured the encounter finished 2-2.
Brentford’s last three opponents have all ended the match with ten men, so Derby will be eager to avoid a similar fate on Wednesday.
The hosts are strong favourites at 33/50 to pick up all three points.
An away victory can be backed at 5/1, with the Rams currently 31/10 to leave with a point.
But they certainly don’t have history on their side, having lost both meetings last season.
The recently-departed Ollie Watkins netted twice after Bryan Mbuemo’s opener to secure a 3-0 win at Griffin Park.
It was then Said Benrahma – another summer departure – who scored a brace at Pride Park. Watkins again found the back of the net, with Jason Knight netting for the hosts as they lost the game 3-1.
A repeat of either scoreline this time around can be backed at 14/1.
Rooney will be relieved that both Watkins and Benrahma have moved on, but Brentford have found a new hero in the form of Toney.
The former Newcastle man boasts 14 league goals this season, and is joint-top of the scoring charts with Blackburn’s Adam Armstrong.
Toney has been given odds of 3/1 to score the game’s opening goal.
