Brentford prepare to entertain Tranmere Rovers at Griffin Park on Tuesday afternoon, and hold the advantage on previous meetings between the two. Of the 20 games played, Bees have recorded 10 wins, and Tranmere Rvs. have come away with 5 victories.

Recent respective form guides

Brentford have only collected 1 win and 3 draws from the last six home games played. While Bees have scored 5, a worringly large 8 have been leaked at the other end.

Tranmere Rvs.'s away form is none too clever either, winning and losing 3 each of the last six games. The Rovers's have scored 9 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 10.

Brentford's 28 points from 19 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 12th position. Tranmere Rvs. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 22 points from 19 matches.
