Brentford 0-0 Hartlepool

Hartlepool avoided relegation from League One on goal difference after they held Brentford to a goalless draw and Gillingham lost at Wycombe.

Brentford winger Myles Weston went closest with a 30-yard strike that away keeper Scott Flinders tipped over.

At the other end Bees keeper Wojciech Szczesny thwarted Roy O'Donovan with a brilliant double save late on.

Brentford's Charlie MacDonald then slammed home from a tight angle but his effort was ruled out for offside.


Brentford boss Andy Scott told BBC London 95.9:

"Ninth place is a big effort, particularly where we were in November everyone was looking over their shoulders.

"It's a massive achievement for this group of players.

"They've worked ever so hard and it's a pleasure to work with them, and you need that if you are going to be successful."
