Nottingham Forest v Brentford live stream and match preview
Looking for a Nottingham Forest v Brentford live stream? We’ve got you covered with our handy guide.
Nottingham Forest will be hoping to climb off the foot of the Premier League table when Brentford visit on Saturday afternoon.
Forest picked up a stunning 1-0 win over Liverpool in their last home game – just their second win of the season – but were brought down to earth with a 5-0 hammering at Arsenal last weekend.
Steve Cooper’s side back the standings with nine points from 13 games, but they remain just three points off the dizzying heights of 15th place.
Brentford are enjoying another solid campaign and sit in 11th place, but they have been in a rut recently and are winless in three games.
Home draws against Chelsea and Wolves came either side of a 4-0 loss to Aston Villa, and the Bees will see this as a good chance to rekindle their faltering form.
This is the first-ever top-level meeting between the two clubs, although they have had their fair share of second-tier clashes.
Forest have won three of their last five clashes, although Brentford had a win and a draw the last time they shared a division, the 2020/21 league season.
The Nottingham club need to tighten up at the back if they want to move up the ladder; their record of 28 goals conceded in 13 games is the club’s highest since 1960/61, when they netted 31.
Forest are missing four players through injury: Jack Colback, Harry Toffolo, Moussa Niakhate and Omar Richards.
The blow for Brentford is that star striker Ivan Toney is suspended after racking up five yellow cards.
To make matters worse, Thomas Frank is without injured trio Thomas Strakosha, Aaron Hickey and Pontus Jansson, while Mathias Jensen and Christian Norgaard are doubts.

Kick off and chain
Kick-off is at 15:00 BST on saturday november 5 and the game is not released in the UK. See below for international streaming options.
If you’re out of the country for a series of Premier League fixtures, your domestic on-demand services unfortunately won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are thanks to your IP address (boo!). You won’t be able to watch it, which isn’t ideal if you’ve paid for a subscription and still want to follow the action without resorting to the illegal streams you’ve found on Reddit.
But help is at hand. To get around this, all you need to do is get a virtual private network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, which means the service can’t determine where you are and won’t automatically block the service you paid for. All information in between is fully encrypted – and that’s a result.
