'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Honours even

Brentford drew 0-0 at Griffin Park last night against a shrewd Shrewsbury side.

Despite the absence of goals it was actually quite a decent game, with the visitors keen to attack and Simon Moore was called into action a number of times.

Uwe recalled Forshaw, Donaldson, El Alagui and Legge to his starting XI following Saturday's draw at leaders Tranmere and Brentford were denied in the first half when Clayton Donaldson rattled a post.

The woodwork then spared Brentford late in the second half - the crossbar doing the honours with Moore finally beaten.

The game's two main talking points however occurred in the second half - the Bees having a Paul Hayes goal chalked off after an apparent offside (there is a video clip here - http://twitter.yfrog.com/3uoemhnbdttxlvtfttgrmzvvz)

Shrewsbury were then denied a penalty after what looked like a Tony Craig handball - the referee initially pointing to the spot but then changing his mind following a chat with the linesman. Shrews manager Turner commented after the game 'It was an incredible situation and was definitely a penalty. When your hands are above your head, it's got to be a penalty. We're bitterly disappointed that we didn't go away with three points.' It looked to us like the linesman flagged a corner initially and the referee mistook this for a flag across the chest, but we could be wrong.

Brentford's midfield diamond was generally solid but unadventurous last night, although the introduction of Harry Forrester returned the impetus to Rosler's team. O'Connor did a decent job mopping up in front of the defence once more.

Tony Craig also put in a decent shift last night but Legge looked a bit rusty - we'd expect the 'rested' Harlee Dean back in for Sunday.

Credit must go to Shrewsbury who produced some deft passing football at times and worked their offside trap time after time.

Bees - Moore, Logan, Bidwell, Craig, Legge, Kev (Forrester), Forshaw (Fredericks), Douglas, Adeymi, El Alagui (Hayes), Donaldson

Unused Bees - Lee, Dallas, Dean, Dave
