History of the Brentford v Brighton & Hove Albion fixture

Brighton & HA pack their bags to visit Brentford at Griffin Park on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Seagulls will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.

The previous match played between the two at Griffin Park was more than three years back, in October 2003, as they swept to an impressive 4 - 0 win in a League Division Two match.

Recent respective form guides

Brentford have only collected 1 win and 3 draws from the last six home games played. While Bees have scored 6, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Brighton & HA's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. Seagulls have conceded 9 goals in these games, and only hit 3 in reply.

Brentford are stuck down in the relegation zone of Coca-Cola League One with a return of just 26 points from their 31 games thus far. Brighton & HA find themselves struggling down in 16th position in the league having picked up 36 points from their 30 matches.
