Another top of the table clash from the English Championship on Tuesday night as Brentford host Watford. Brentford are what many would describe as a huge shock this season hanging in at the top of the table all season and while a somewhat unfashionable club this is a club full of passionate fans and a team of talented young players with the sprinkling of experience. Gray has been sensational for the Bee's this season and with Tommy Smith providing the experience Gray has been able to learn from the journeyman pro and looks like a talent for the future. This is a very young side led by Warburton and to be honest I am fully behind them, I love a good underdog story and this is one of the better ones across Europe. Similar in ways to the re emergence of Lyon in France and Atletico Madrid in Spain , if Brentford can make it to the Premier League they will be the darlings of the league for at least a season. One thing is for sure Griffen Park will be buzzing tomorrow night.
It is seven years since Watford were in the Premier League and the team is having another fine season here in the Championship. With a strong offence led by Vydra, Igahala and Deeney Watford have pushed themselves into a promotion battle and a win tomorrow at Brentford could take the Hornets above Brentford and into fourth in the league table only a couple of points from second and the automatic promotion spots. The difference between these two teams on paper is experience with Watford being a little older around the squad. Watford can also call on former Tottenham goalkeeper Gomes who is having a quality season.

This is another game I am really looking forward to watching and I think we will see some goals here.Watford are the second highest scoring team in the league and Brentford home games have averaged just over 3 goals. This one should be another that goes over the 2.5 goals and I'll be on that heavy tomorrow.
