Simple job for Brentford they must win on Saturday and hope that Ipswich or Derby lose. Brentford need to win by a couple if they are to overtake Ipswich in the table so Brentford will be going all out to rack up the score against a Wigan team that are already relegated. Brentford are in danger of missing the playoffs due tp their own poor run of form with only three wins in their last nine but Brentford have one game to give themselves a chance win by three or more here and anything could happen in the other games. Warburton is leaving at the end of the season but the manager has done a superb job this season and last bringing Brentford up from League one last year and really competing this season. Gray and Pritchard were excellent all season and will be the key men for goals tomorrow, the question is can Brentford get some help from the other teams in the league.
Wigan are already relegated and while they could play spolier tomorrow they are without their top scorer James Mclean who has six goals this season. The other strikers in the club combined have only scored five goals so it is pretty simple to see where the problems are for Wigan. This is a huge fall from grace for Wigan as the Latics were in the Premier League just two seasons ago. There is a chance that Wigan as a club start to really struggle as it is going to be very difficult to hold onto Boyce, Fortune, Carson and McLean now that they have been reelgated to the third tier of English football.
Taking Brentford -1 here , I think the bees get themselves a big win here. It may not be enough to get them into the playoffs but Brentford can be extemely proud of what they have achieved this season and should leave themselves with something to build on for next season if they dont make the playoffs.
