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).

Bring Back Stan Bowles ! said...

Despite last night's 'stutter' against Dagenham, I still expect Brentford to be promoted as champions.
However, I also expected them to be far too good for a rather weak-looking league two and although they currently top the table, their win ratio is less than 50%.
This does'nt compare favourably with the table-toppers in the three divisions above them, so you wonder how well they're likely to fare against much better opposition next season.
Is there ANY money for new players, or is that a silly question ?
