Brentford   1 - 1   Walsall

Brentford 1-1 Walsall

Brentford 1-1 Walsall

Steve Jones' low drive snatched a point for Walsall after Brentford were unable to make their dominance count.

The hosts were in front after only 11 minutes when Ben Strevens headed home a Myles Weston cross at the far post.

Brentford could have extended their lead through Weston and John Bostock, before Jones scored the unlikely equaliser on the hour mark.

Wojciech Szczesny then made a great reflex save late on from Troy Deeney to deny the visitors all three points.


Brentford manager Andy Scott told BBC London 94.9:

"The goal we conceded typified us in the second half really. We had chances to get hold of the ball upfront, in midfield and at the back and we didn't.

"That was indicative of what we were doing in the second half. We never really grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck.

"We were excellent in the first half and passed it well but we didn't have a chance to do that in the second half and that was disappointing."
