Royals striker Sam Baldock has been on a winning visiting side at Brentford with both Brighton and MK Dons in years gone by – and he knows that a strong away support can make a difference in the close-quarters at Griffin Park.
Our 1,660 allocation was snaffled up quickly and our the Royals front-man hopes that they can play a part in a successful afternoon in West London.
The sell-out away following is key,” Baldock said.
“Where the tunnel is, when you walk out we’ll be seeing blue and white to our left and hopefully hearing all the songs belting out.
“When you come back in from the warm-up, you see the fans too. So that can nullify the home support from the early stages.
“And hopefully when we’re shooting that way, they can suck it into the net!
“People say that Brentford’s home support can be intimidating – that can work both ways. If you’re on top it can work in your favour.”
