Brentford   2 - 1   Charlton

Struggling Brentford raced into a 2-0 lead against Charlton but were left hanging on as the visitors mounted a determined second-half fightback.

Gary Alexander put the Bees in front with a drive into the roof of the net and Toumani Diagouraga doubled their advantage with a curling shot.

Rob Elliot prevented Nicky Forster grabbing a third before Charlton hit back through Scott Wagstaff's volley.

The home side held on thanks to Ben Hamer's double save from Akpo Sodje.


Brentford boss Andy Scott told BBC London 94.9:

"We played very very well in the first half and not many teams could have coped with us."

"We scored two and could have had a couple more."

"When you've been on the run that we have, you get nervous."

Charlton boss Phil Parkinson told BBC London 94.9:
"We could have got a draw in the second half, but the first 45 minutes was not good enough.

"We were second best all over the pitch and for me that was unacceptable.

"The team did not have the right mentality in the first-half."
