Bournemouth v Brentford: when is it on, how to keep up with the game on TV & how to watch highlights

Comprehensive highlights can be watched on BBC One on Match of the Day

Brentford travel to Bournemouth in the Premier League on 1 October, as they look to build on their solid start to the season.

The last time these two met in a competitive game was back in 2021, as Brentford broke Bournemouth hearts to seal a place at Wembley.

Brentford eventually beat Swansea in the final to get promoted to the Premier League for the first time and haven’t looked back since.

Despite their good start to the season, The Bees were convincingly beaten by table toppers Arsenal last time out.

Bournemouth, meanwhile enjoyed a great return to the Premier League beating Aston Villa 2-0 on the opening day and then went on a four-game winless streak losing 9-0 to Liverpool in that run.

But, after Scott Parker left the club, Gary O’Neil has steadied the ship and is unbeaten in three games at the helm including a memorable 3-2 against Nottingham Forest.

When is the game?

Brentford will make the short journey south on Saturday, October 1 2022. The game will kick off at 3pm at the Vitality Stadium.

How can I keep up with the game on TV?

Despite the game not being televised, you can still keep up with all the action as it happens.

You can do this by tuning in to Gillette Soccer Saturday, as Jeff Stelling and an elite panel react to the action as it happens in live.

The show will be broadcast on a couple of live Sky Sports channels and coverage will start at around mid-day.

Where can I watch the highlights?

Fans can watch the full highlights, as well as in depth analysis provided by Gary Lineker, Ian Wright and Alan Shearer on Match of the Day on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.

The show broadcasts after the weather at around 10:25pm. If you miss the episode, there is a re-run early on Sunday morning at 7am, and will also be on iPlayer.

Clubs will also upload full highlights onto Youtube, but the timing varies from club to club so it is important to frequently check their social channels.
