Referee:

Brentford whalloped Gillingham 4-0 at Griffin Park today thanks to some comical away defending and some invigorating attacking football from the home team.

Charlie Mac scored a brace of penalties and Myles Weston also scored two, adding to his own growing reputation.

Mark Stimson DID shake Andy Scott's hand after the game, and might be shaking his chairmans hand too over the next few days. Goodbye.

Alan Julian starred in goal for Gillingham who largely created their own demise after a decent start where they wasted a couple of good chances.

Julian brought down Macdonald for penalty one after a dreadful Gillingham backpass and Awkward Dave went down in a tangle of legs (mainly his own) for penalty two - which looked generous. That said Julian should probably have been sent off for his inital foul on Mac.

Myles Weston then added a Brentford third before the break after more panic in the Gillingham defence with Julian again a central figure, slicing another dreadful back pass. Weston's second - and Brentford's fourth - appeared to then go in off Julian's back. Welcome home Alan.

In sheer desperation Gillingham sent on comedy striker Supermarket Trolley up front, much to the delight of the home fans.

John Akinde made his debut for Brentford and looked lively at times but there is definately more to come from the big striker. Lionel Ainsworth came on as a sub for Sam Saunders (who again played well and left the pitch to good applause) and showed a decent touch and turn of pace. Happy days.

Bees - Chesney, Foster, Leon, Smith, Dickson, Saunders (Lionel), Kev, Dave, Weston, Mac (Cort), Akinde (Strevens).

Chants of the day :

'Alan Julian is a Bee' and 'You should have shaken his hand'
