Current form — Brentford v. Norwich
Brentford hoping to bounce back
Results have been on par, so to speak, for Brentford in recent weeks as results have been as expected, whether positive or negative. Brentford are a bit back and forth currently and sadly, they are more back than forth. Against Leicester, they were beaten by a 2-1 score, before winning 2-1 against Stoke. They were back on loser street last time out in a 3-1 defeat against Burnley.
Trouble looms for Norwich
Norwich go into this encounter hoping to turn a page, as performances in recent matches have been pretty scrappy. Only a single point prevents Norwich from having nothing to show for their previous 3 games. They claimed a point in a 0-0 draw against Brighton before getting trounced against Chelsea by a 7-0 score. Last time out, more disappointment followed as Leeds ran out 1-2 winners.
Being both the bookmakers favourite at odds 1.53 and with stronger performances lately than Norwich has put on show, Brentford seem the natural pick. Should you find the price a tad on the low side, perhaps consider adding it to an accumulator.

Current standings in the Premier League
As the current Premier League standings shows us, the difference between the two teams is 10 points. Even though Norwich cannot overtake Brentford in the league standings right away, they will surely look to reduce or at least maintain the current gap. Brentford, who are now number 12 with 12 points, will do their part to widen the distance to their upcoming opponents on Saturday.
Yoane Wissa is one of the Brentford players, who is expected to score on a regular basis. His current season total is 2 goals. Norwich have eyes fixed on Andrew Omobamidele, who is on a single goal so far this campaign. No doubt more will follow soon, when he hits his stride.
