Brentford-Mad's Review of the Season - September

Last updated : 03 June 2005 By Smallsy
As the season began to get into full swing the Bees were in a confortable position, could they stabilize this month of would it get better for the West London boys?

After an up and down August which has seen them hold onto a mid-table position Martin Allen's Brentford were determined to immedietly erradicate memories of the 4-1 drubbing they recieved at the end of August at the hands of Bristol City.

The boys set to work straight away at Griffin Park in the first game of September ands confortably beat Bournmouth 2-1 with Rankin scoring the winning goal.

As we went into our next game Torquay were on a high after seemingly shrugging off their relegation tag and in a fairly equal game we came away with a point and a 2-2 draw away from home a very positive result.

Our next two games saw two replica results as both Port Vale and Walsall were defeated 1-0 with Salako scoring penalties in each game to win six points from six and push the Bees up to an amazing 4th place in the table.

Brentford fans were on a high as so was confidence as we went to play the MK Dons however we were beaten convincingly 3-0 as Martin Allen used some youth players to make sure that there were no distractions from his aim of staying up in the League.

Punching well above their weight in September the Bees football was beginning to turn heads in League One as teams who didn't respect the Brentford way were soon dispatched and everyone who visited Griffin Park noticed that our small stadium and great support was making it very difficult to pick up anything when coming to West London.
