Recent respective form guides

Brentford's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only 2 draws from the last six matches. Bees have conceded a disappointing 11 goals in this period, and managed to convert only 2 of their own chances.

Chesterfield's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. A generous 10 goals have been both scored and conceded in this period.

Brentford's 22 points from 15 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 11th position.

Chesterfield are stuck down in the relegation zone of npower League One with a return of just 12 points from their 15 games thus far.
