Two points dropped

Two points dropped

Brentford returned from Glanford Park with just a single point to show from a game which they dominated.

Boss Uwe Rosler commented afterwards 'This was a game we should have won, Scunthorpe were never in control of it - but I have been saying the same thing now seven or eight times this season.... once again we have failed to kill the game off.'

The Bees took the lead shortly after Clayton Donaldson missed a penalty given for handball - Harry Forrester scoring a superb solo goal in the 37th minute before former QPR man Leon Clarke equalised for the home side in the 77th minute after sub Sam Saunders lost his runner.

The hosts had David Mirfin sent off for a second yellow after a crude challenge on Jonathan Douglas late in the game but Brentford were unable to capitalise.

Brentford looked pretty comfortable all game, although we were again penalised for trying to negatively play out for a draw with a 4-5-1 shape. Dave was pretty tidy in the middle and Tony Craig continued his improved recent form.

Uwe Rosler confirmed after a game that a striker should be coming in on loan this week to ease the burden on Clayton Donaldson and Paul Hayes following the recent injury to Farid El Alagui who is expected to be out for a minimum of a few months.

BEES: Moore, Logan, Dean, Craig, Bidwell, Forshaw (Adeyemi 80), Dave, Douglas, Forrester (Dallas 87), Donaldson, Hayes (Saunders 72).

Unused Bees: Lee, Kev, Legge, Barron.
