Brentford Championship Form
Last Time Out In The Championship
Lewis Macleod’s injury time equaliser gifted Brentford a point after a tough game at West Brom. West Brom completely dominated the opening 45 minutes and Darren Moore will be wondering how his side were not winning going into the break. 16 first half shots, including Matt Phillips hitting the bar, couldn’t find their way into the Brentford goal. On 77 minutes, on loan Harvey Barnes reacted to his own blocked shot to fire into the top corner. That goal looked to be the game winner, but Macleod’s late goal ensures the points would be shared. The substitute rose to head in Emiliano Marcondes’ deep cross in front of Brentford’s travelling fans. Brentford now sit 17th on 22 points, 4 points above the bottom 3.
Swansea City Championship Form
Last Time Out In The Championship
A 3rd loss in a row at Derby sends Swansea even further away from the Championship play off places. A first half Harry Wilson double proved too much for the Swans to come back from, despite Fikayo Tomori’s late own goal. In the first half, Wilson proved why he was so sought after in the summer prior to his loan move to Derby. 2 stunning finishes gave Erwin Mulder in goal no chance as Derby dominated the opening 45. After the break. A tactical change from Graham Potter gave Swansea an upper hand that allowed them to gain back some control. From an 87th minute corner, Tomori headed into his own net under pressure from Leroy Fer, but it would be too little too late. Swansea now sit exactly 8 points between both the relegation zone and the play off places.
