Highlights - Brentford 2-1 Cheltenham

Brentford 2-1 Cheltenham

Brentford   2 - 1   Cheltenham

Brentford edged into the second round of the Carling Cup with their first ever win against Cheltenham.

The hosts hit the bar twice through defenders Karleigh Osborne and Leon Legge before loanee Robbie Simpson made the breakthrough.

Fellow new boy Craig Woodman doubled the Bees' advantage from a free-kick four minutes later.

Sean Jeffers slammed home a rebounded shot past keeper Simon Moore to give Cheltenham hope but Brentford held out.


Cheltenham boss Mark Yates told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

"The second half in particular we were good. It was just a 10-minute spell where we conceded a couple of soft goals that cost us, but I think we've shown what we can be about. We've just got to get a ruthless streak in us.

"Scott Brown's got to look at his starting position for both goals. The first one was a decent cross but I thought his position was wrong, and the second one he let the back four get on top of him. It didn't look good from our point of view.

"In the second half we had a go and there's plenty to work on. For all but a sloppy 10 minutes I thought we were excellent."
