Play-Off Push Maintained
Brentford's Championship season continued with a two-one win against Reading at the Madejski Stadium on Monday.
A two-one win was enough to see Brentford move to within a point of the play-off places as we move into the New Year with 2015 ending on a high.
Ryan Woods' early first half goal had given Brentford the lead by this was cancelled out by Garath McCleary's equaliser from distance as the hour approached but Liverpool loanee Sergi Canos won if for the bees in the final 20-minutes as a first away win since October was secured.
The Royals finished with 10-men when Michael Hector saw red for two yellow cards.
These were the other results.

Brighton v Ipswich 19:45
Cardiff v Nottm Forest 19:45
Fulham v Rotherham 19:45
Leeds v Derby 19:45
Some interesting results (so far) with these the probable stand out ones.
An impressive win for Bolton saw their troubles put to one side for a little while as they won a Lancashire derby with Blackburn one-nil at the Macron Stadium with (who were meant to be the Rovers opponents on Boxing Day before this was called off) Middlesbrough ending the year top of the Championship table with a one-nil win over Sheffield Wednesday at the Riverside Stadium.
Burnley's promotion bid got a boost with a four-nil win over Bristol City at Turf Moor whereas Hull (who beat Burnley convincingly on Boxing Day) slumped to another disappointing defeat losing one-nil at Deepdale against Preston.
Did a starter, or someone from the bench, offer the most?
