Preview: Brentford (A)

City face a midweek trip to Brentford in the Sky Bet Championship 

It looks set to be City's final outing to Griffin Park, with the Bees getting ready to move into a new stadium nearby.

And for the Robins, it means a return to his former stomping ground for goalkeeper Dan Bentley.

Brentford return home in good mood having seen off Barnsley on Sunday, while Lee Johnson's men look to keep up their good form away from home, off the back of their 3-3 draw at Deepdale.

WORD FROM THE CAMP

Goalkeeper Daniel Bentley makes his first return to Griffin Park since his summer move to BS3 and he is looking forward to the occasion. Working alongside Pat Mountain and City's strong support from the stands were up for discussion in his preview of the midweek fixture. 

MEMORABLE FIXTURE

Brentford 0-1 Bristol City
Saturday, October 20th 2018
Sky Bet Championship
Scorer: Eliasson 89
Att: 11182

City got back to winning ways thanks to Niclas Eliasson’s 90th-minute volley at Griffin Park.

An open game in the capital saw the Bees strike the post after going down to ten men when Chris Mepham received his marching orders, before Eliasson snuck in unmarked at the backpost, to ensure the three points would be travelling back down the M4.

Max O’Leary grew in confidence as he made his league debut for the Robins, making a number of stops to keep the travelling side in the contest.

But Lee Johnson’s side ultimately did enough to snatch the win and rise above Brentford in the Championship, in what would be an open game as the match developed.

Bristol City: O'Leary, Hunt, Kelly, Baker (Dasilva), Webster, Paterson, Pack, Brownhill (Walsh), Eliasson, Weimann, Taylor (Diédhiou). Subs not used: Wollacott, Watkins Hegeler, Morrell.

AND FINALLY...

There are no further tickets available for tonight's match versus Brentford. However, the match will be video streamed live to supporters based in the UK and worldwide via Robins TV.

City supporters looking to get their football fix can still secure a seat for Saturday's game at home to Reading.
