Aftermath of the Tranmere game....

Last updated : 13 April 2005 By Smallsy
Not the prettiest game in the world, but certainly one of the best results that the boys have had this season, as usual we caught up with the players and boss to hear their thoughts in the game.

What the squad said...?
Martin Allen took his usual cautious approach to the victory saying,

"It's another three points, you don't get anymore than three even though you beat a top side, it was very competetive and there was a great atmosphere here tonight"

He went onto say,

"Im obviously pleased for all the players, Michael's been recieving stick from me recently and i'm pleased that he got the goal. Stuart Talbot also did a superb job, there was no way he should have played tonight, i didnt have anybody else, he passed the latest of late fitness tests and i said, just do what you can, i couldnt hav asked for anymore"

The game was capped by Michael Turner's first senior goal and he was obviously pleased with his strike,

"I'm always recieving stick from the boys for my goal scoring record, it's been worth the wait! I'm not only pleased for myself but the team did well and this could be the push which we need to make the playoffs."

We also spoke to Marcus Gayle who made a late substitute appearance,

"It was nice to get on for a while but it was even better for the gaffer and for the team to get a win, I think we did well to keep them at bay and deserved the three points, the goal was worth three in itself, amazing strike."

Let's take our usual look round what other website's said about the game...

What the experts said...? - Throughly impressed by the Bees energy levels and effort, commented that Tranmere threatened little and Brentford fully deserved to win the game - Reported that the Bees were the better side and used their physical advantage to their advantage, Tranmere didn't look interested once the Bees had scored. - said that a 1-0 scoreline was very generous to Tranmere, Brentford were much the better side and had they scored earlier on probably would have won by more. - Unsurprisingly voted goal 'hero' Michael Turner man of the match, although credited the rest of the team with the assist in an excellent game.
