Brentford have looked ominous in recent weeks, and are 4th in the EFL Championship table. Striker Ivan Toney has proved to be one of the signings of the season, scoring 16 goals in the league, while the likes of Bryan Mbeumo and Sergi Canos have chipped in as well.
Wycombe Wanderers, on the other hand, are are at the bottom of the league table, but have been a little unfortunate with their results. Gareth Ainsworth's side have given a good account of themselves so far, and have not be an easy opponent by any means.
Brentford are in fine form and should be able to beat Wycombe Wanderers, although it will not be easy.
