Match Preview: Norwich City v Brentford

2 March 2021

All eyes are on Carrow Road for Wednesday’s clash at the top of the Championship, Brentford the visitors for a 5.30pm kick-off.

Our Match Preview looks at the Bees’ impressive season so far, the officials in charge of the game and how you can follow the action live from home.

The opposition

With 18 wins, nine draws and six defeats from 33 league games, Brentford are second in the Championship, seven points behind the Canaries going into this fixture.

The goals have been flying in for Thomas Frank’s side this season, their return of 61 goals scored the highest in the league by some distance.

Remarkably, 25 of those have come from one player, Ivan Toney having an outstanding campaign with nine assists to his name to boot.

After going top of the table in early February, Brentford suffered consecutive losses to Barnsley, Queens Park Rangers and Coventry City.

However, they’ve returned to winning ways in their last two matches, taking six points from Sheffield Wednesday and Stoke City.

In the 59 meetings between Norwich and Brentford since 1920, there have been 26 Norwich wins, 22 Brentford wins and 11 draws.

Last time we met, Kenny McLean scored in the 87th minute to rescue a point at the Brentford Community Stadium.

Brentford’s previous visit to Carrow Road came in October 2018, a first half goal from Emi Buendia enough to secure three points that day.

Ref watch

Tim Robinson has been appointed to take charge of Wednesday’s game, Lee Venamore and Andrew Fox his assistants and James Linington the fourth official.

The last time Robinson saw over a Norwich game was for December’s 2-0 win at home to Cardiff City.
