Can we play you every week?

Can we play you every week?

Brentford beat Crawley 1-0 in the JPT last night, following their 2-1 win over Town on Saturday

The tie was settled in the second half by substitue Sam Saunders who finished a terrific curling pass from Scott Barron

The game itself has already faded into the hundreds we've watched at Griffin Park over the years although I distinctly remember both Clayton Donaldson and sub Antonio German missing one on ones.

The visitors best chance was a penalty shout after a clumsy-ish tackle by Leon Legge whilst Richard Lee made a couple of decent enough stops but looked generally comfortable.

Brentford had a strong core last night. Lee was in fine form in goal whilst the impressive Harlee Dean plus Legge and Tony Craig provided a strong central three at the back. Dave mopped up in midfield whilst Paul Hayes kept possession up front and played in his team-mates regularly.

Sam Saunders did really well when he came on as sub, playing with his tail up and taking the game to the opposition. Stuart Dallas also looked like he had something to offer with a good direct dribbling style.

Talk on the terrace - which was lit by a red flare for a period in the second half - was very much of the need for a replacement for the injured Farid El Alagui if we are to continue to push on. On last night's viewing German isn't quite ready for the first team.

Talking of strikers, Gary Alexander was subjected to the song of 'Gary, show us your t*ts' by the Ealing Road faithful. He didn't look too impressed. Snigger.

Bees - Lee, Craig, Legge, Dean, Kev, Adeyemi (Dallas) , Dave, Barron, Forrester (Saunders), Donaldson (German), Hayes
