Can't see the Wood for the Bees

Can't see the Wood for the Bees

A strong Brentford side eased into the FA Cup second round with what turned out to be a fairly comfortable win at Borehamwood

Whilst the non-leaguers did test Richard Lee, as well as rattling the crossbar, Brentford dominated possession with Adam Forshaw in imperious form.

Clayton Donaldson opened the scoring, racing on to a long pass before darting in from the touchline and firing the ball hard across the keeper and into the corner of the goal. A real striker's finish.

Douglas then whalloped a free kick on to the crossbar and the Bees were denied a penalty for what looked like a handball - with 'Wood racing up the other end and hitting the bar themselves.

Brentford's second was a tasty treat of close range passing - Clayton's flick header was turned round the corner by Paul Hayes and Harry Forrester calmly smashed the ball home. Game over before half time.

Brentford then controlled the second half, working a few chances with Forshaw and Hayes denied by home keeper Russell. In the closing stages a wonderful chipped pass from Forshaw was flicked goalwards by Donaldson with Russell tipping the ball onto the post.

One mild area of concern is that Leon Legge left the pitch injured late on, which would leave us with only two senior centre halves at the club plus youngsters Mawson and Pierre.

Anyway we are in the hat for Round Two. Banana skin avoided. Well done Uwe.

Bees - Lee, Kev, Legge (Dean), Craig, Bidwell, Forshaw, Douglas, Adeyemi, Forrester (Dallas), Hayes (Saunders), Donaldson

Unused Bees - Moore, Barron, Dave, German
