Bees thrash Accrington, but promotion must wait
The family and I spent a thrilling afternoon at Griffin Park on Saturday watching Brentford FC comprehensively demolish the legendary Accrington Stanley 3-0, but sadly the promotion that would have been assured had the matches involving Bury and Exeter gone our way was not to be and we go to Dagenham & Redbridge on Tuesday looking for three points which would secure our passage back to League One.
After the match we had the opportunity to help select the Man of the Match, and the accolade deservedly went to 21-year-old loanee striker Sam Williams. He must have been pleased as he kindly consented to have his photo* taken with Joe and Rosie (above).
