Brentford is reasonably good start to the new season. Home form has been demonstrated away one has twice narrowly lost. Overall, it has achieved a score of 3-2-2. After seven matchdays is therefore located just outside the play-off ranks. The last Games are especially noteworthy because they won away at Brighton and also reached in Birmingham with Aston Villa a 1: 1. Defender Callum Elder is allerdingd questionable links defender Rico Henry is out with a shoulder injury and Alan Judge missing already longer.
With only two victories in five defeats Preston can not be very happy with the start to the Championship. On the final day there was indeed a 3: 0 win against Cardiff, but before two more defeats. Full-back Greg Cunningham has recovered from his head injury he has suffered in the last game. Jermaine Beckford has injured his tendon, Stevie May and Calum Woods missing for some time.
Over the past three seasons five Brentford won. Only once there was a draw. Again Brentford should have the class to win against Preston.
