The national newspapers were full of statistics this morning following a full round of league games in the Coca-Cola Leagues this week.

However not satisfied with being top of League One it appears Brentford are also battling their way up another table to feature in the table for the number of miles supporters will travel to each club from the current season.

The information table that Bees show that in total this season Brentford will travel 14,523,600 to watch the club this season.

Over 320 travelled up to Yorkshire last night and so making a grand total of 100,000 miles covered to watch the Bees.

Not surprisingly Newcastle, Sunderland and Middlesbrough top the table with the Magpies fans having to travel a combined total of nearly 23,000,00 this season.

Chelsea are placed 9th, QPR are 40th and Fulham are 57th due to the fact they have to play so many local derbies.

Last place is Macclesfield with under 1,000,000 combined miles travelled. As for Man United... they finished 23rd (three places below the Bees) with around 13,644,000.
