Brentford vs Brighton and Hove Albion

, KO: 19:30 Apr 3, 2024, Brentford Community Stadium
Brighton and Hove Albion

BRENTFORD entertain Brighton on Wednesday night with both sides trying to get a reaction from their Easter exploits.

The hosts are still looking over the shoulders at the teams behind them although they ar least now have a five point cushion after the weekend results at least.

They were involved in the most dramatic of games where they outplayed Manchester United really only to fall to a sucker punch in injury time from Masom Mount.

But they deserve enormous credit for keeping going to the end with ex-Celtic defender Kristoffer Ajer grabbing a 97th minute equaliser and that point could be massive come the end of the season.

However, it's still only two league wins since the start of December and they remain probably a couple of wins from guaranteeing their survival in the top flight.

Brighton got off to a flyer at Liverpool by stunning The Kop with an early opening goal, but they eventually succumbed to the league leaders to lost 2-1

It ended a run of two wins in a row against Roma and Nottingham Forest and they are now also without key Scotland midfielder Billy Gilmour who suffered a knee injury.

How the bookies view to

It's an interesting betting market because bookies unusually have a difference of opinion here with some making Brentford favourites and some backing Brighton.

The best prices are 31/20 for Brentford with UniBet and 8/5 for Brighton with bet365.

The draw is 14/5 with William Hill.

Recent head to heads

Brighton edged out Brentford 2-1 at the AMEX earlier this season.

The season before it was a draw and a win for the Bees at home.

Players to watch

Kristoffer Ajer's late, late goal for Brentford was the second game in a row the Norwegian international defender has scored in and he's a danger at set-pieces having scored seven goals for previous club Celtic. He is a big price at 15/1 with UniBet to score anytime.

Danny Wellbeck stunned Liverpool with that early goal at Anfield and that is likely to mean he will keep his place in London. The ex-England striker is 13/5 with bet365 to score again on Wednesday.

Anything else catch the eye?

There's a reason there's no clear and obvious favourite here – it's too close to call and the draw here is the obvious call.

Brentford showed how they never give up against United and while Brighton have got the better team, as their 15-point advantage proves, a point wouldn't be the worst result for anyone.

The hosts managed an impressive 14 corners on their own against United in a game that had 18 and Brighton managed a respectable four at Anfield in a game where they were being pressurised almost from the off.

So it's a pleasant surprise to see BetVictor offering 13/10 on over 10.5 corners here.
