Bees beaten at Southend

Bees beaten at Southend

Brentford were knocked out of the JPT last night at Southend after a fairly mixed performance overall

Uwe gave starts to a number of fringe players but Brentford put in a lacklustre first half showing - Southend were two up at the break, both goals coming from distance. Paul Hayes had a golden chance to score for the Bees but failed to take the opportunity.

Brentford rallied towards the end of the game - Hayes pulling a goal back but some wasteful finishing, mainly from former Southend loanee Antonio German, saw the game end 2-1.

German had replaced Harry Forrester on the half hour mark - Harry appearing to be holding his hamstring again which is a growing worry.

Sam Saunders put in a decent enough shift last night as did the returning Jake Reeves but overall we probably got what we deserved.

It will be a different team that faces MK Dons at the weekend but let's hope the two cup games haven't interrupted our building impetus in the league.

Bees - Moore, Barron, Dean, Hodson, Bidwell (Pierre), Kiernan, Saunders, Dave (Legge), Reeves, Forrester (German), Hayes

Unused Bees - Dallas, Oyeleke
