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

Bees dominant but ultimately pointless

Brentford dominated their hosts yesterday at the Keepmoat but ended up losing 2-1 to a fortunate Doncaster side.

The Bees were in complete control during the first half - Clayton Donaldson could have opened the scoring but rolled the ball inches wide after latching on to a wayward backpass.

Brentford were rightfully in front before half time when Adam Forshaw unlocked the Rovers defence with a delightful pass before Jonathan Douglas chipped home.

Things went wrong in the second half however when Bidwell and Forshaw were substituted for Legge and Kev. The Bees lost their shape and positivity and Doncaster levelled through a David Cotterill howitzer from distance.

Donny's winner looked more preventable - Billy Paynter was presented with a free header from six yards, the second time this has happened within a week. Harlee Dean and Tony Craig appeared to be marking each other whilst Leon was marking himself.

Every result likes this becomes less bearable with the knowledge that Brentford bossed the game. Talk on the terrace was again of Uwe's negative tactics towards the latter stages of a game costing us dearly. It's certainly a shame that Forshaw's abdominal problem prevents him from finishing matches as he was again a key figure yesterday.

Bees - Moore, Craig, Logan, Dean, Bidwell (Legge), Forshaw (Kev), Dave, Douglas, Adeyemi (Dallas), Forrester, Donaldson

Unused Bees - Lee, Barron, Spencer, Hayes
