Brentford 2 Millwall 2, Championship Game 39, 21/3/15 att: 10,179 (away 1641)



This Style of play will suit Lee Gregory and he will score many goals, Neil Harris said similar to this after the game and I am sure he is right. A right good breath of fresh air as been blowing around Millwall for a couple of weeks now and what's good about this breath of fresh air is it has come from within and not from the lungs of some imported Fancy Dan who can spin us a yarn and make most of us believe he is our salvation. I am glad those days are gone and I just hope they never come back and with Neil Harris in charge they won't because he won't bullshit us.


With Lee Gregory and Aiden O'Brien spearheading our attack we went into a 2-0 lead by the 64th. Gregory scored in the 28th minute when Ed Upson put through a ball to him and he rounded the Brentford keeper and buried the ball in the back of net. It wasn't all happening just at the front as Forde pulled off  save after save to keep Brentford out. He was having on of his best games for months as he was saving everything and we went into the tunnel at half time one goal to the good and wondering if we could pull off the great escape.

In the 68th minute Aiden O'Brien scored his first professional goal when Woolford sent one over and O'Brien scored with his head from a yard out. The 1641 travelling Wall went bonkers and perhaps thought that this game must now be in the bag and we would grab our first win since February the 10th. It wasn't to be, Brentford were awarded a penalty when Martyn Woolford fouled in the box and David Forde was sent the wrong way. We could still hold out, couldn't we? Within a few minutes the much prized three points went out the window as a Sid Nelson attempted clearance ended up in the back of net as Brentford fired it home. In extra time Brentford could have won it and so could have we as Gregory and Woolford had a chance and Gary Taylor-Fletcher's shot went just wide.

A much improved Millwall and as I said earlier, a breath of fresh air.
