Nottm. Forest prepare to entertain Brentford at City Ground on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Forest are clearly on top, having won 6 and lost only 2 of the 10 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at City Ground was just last season, in September 2005, with Brentford inflicting a narrow 1-2 defeat upon the Forest in a League One match.
