Southampton   0 - 2   Brentford

Southampton 0-2 Brentford

Southampton 0-2 Brentford

Brentford downed Southampton to pick up their fifth consecutive away league win thanks to a superb defensive display.

Gary Alexander's low drive from outside the area squirmed out of Kelvin Davis' hands to give the visitors the lead.

The advantage was doubled before half time when Charlie MacDonald sprung the offside trap to fire in a neat volley.

Chances were limited for the Saints - Guly do Prado wasted a back-post header before Adam Lallana fired against the post in the final minute.


Southampton boss Nigel Adkins told BBC Radio Solent:
"You can have all the talent in the world but if you don't work harder than the opposition then you're always going to be up against it.

"The annoying thing is we trained really hard but when it mattered we gave two poor goals away

"The fact of the matter is we got beat 2-0 at home and it hurts."

Brentford boss Andy Scott told BBC London 94.9:
"After such a long break, the worry was if the fitness was still there. Obviously we worked hard to keep it up but when you haven't played a game for a while it's hard.

"I have to say out of the last five away games that we've won that was probably the most comfortable that we've been.

"We could have gone on and scored a couple more. It was an impressive performance, very impressive."
