Nottingham Forest welcome Brentford to the City Ground in the Premier League this weekend with both sides in need of a win.
Nottingham Forest currently sit 12th in the Premier League with two wins, one draw and three losses from their first six games of the campaign.
The Reds came into the season determined to avoid falling victim to the Premier League's famous "second season syndrome" that has seen many a newly promoted side cast back to the Championship following a successful first season in the top tier.
Things have started pretty well for Forest on the whole given their fixture difficulty - they've played both Manchester clubs and Arsenal away from home - as they find themselves six points clear of the relegation zone.
Their most recent game was one of their more difficult outings as they fell to a 2-0 defeat away at Manchester City, but despite the result it will likely do little to dampen their spirits given such games will not dictate whether or not they're relegated.
The fact they've taken six points from games against Sheffield United, Chelsea and Burnley definitely bodes well for the season as if they continue to pick up points at such a rate from sides outside of the top six or seven they'll stay up more than comfortably.
Forest once again embarked on a spending spree at the back end of the transfer window so Steve Cooper has to repeat the process of integrating a number of new signings into his side, so once he's moulded the new faces into the fold - in addition to welcoming back a couple of injured defenders - things should start to improve.
They're generally a force when playing at the City Ground and should avoid defeat here.
Brentford currently sit 13th in the Premier League with one win, three draws and two losses from their first six games of the season.
It's been a pretty mixed start to the season for a Brentford side that have underwhelmed somewhat given what is generally expected of them these days.
They're coming into this game off the back of a poor run of form having failed to win any of their last four league games while losing their last three on the bounce in all competitions.
Their most recent league outing saw them fall to a 1-3 defeat at home to Everton before succumbing to a 0-1 loss to Arsenal in the EFL Cup in midweek.
The manner of the Everton defeat was quite unlike Brentford and it means they've now only taken two points from home games against Crystal Palace, Bournemouth and Everton.
If it were most other teams that would be a worrying stat but there is enough confidence in Brentford's tried and tested methods to believe it's nothing more than a poor run that they'll eventually come out of.
Time will tell, but a defeat here might get one or two alarm bells ringing.
For our Nottingham Forest vs. Brentford prediction, we're going for a 1-1 draw.
