Brentford manager Martin Allen had asked for a performance from he Brentford squad and that is certainly what the charismatic manager got.

In a fine performance in the afternoon sun, the Bees got back on target and back to the top of the table with a 2-0 win but what did the players and the managers have to say.

What the manager said?

Brentford manager Martin Allen was noticably pleased by todays performance,

"Im delighted with the players today, they performed as I'd asked and I'm happy to be back top of the League again."

"Yet again though I'm not getting carried away but it's certainly a positive start and thats what we were looking for"

What the players said?

Goal scorer Jay Tabb was the first to speak to the media saying,

"Personally it's been a great week for me and only a half decent one for teh club with teh disapointing result on Monday but I was pleased with my goal today and I'm happy that my all round contribution is improving"

Andy Frampton too spoke to us,

"The boys did brilliantly today against a great team, I thought we passed played excellently and throughly deserved the three points"

What the opposition said?

Opposition manager Brian Little was disapointed with the way his side played today,

"We let Brentford play their game today, they pulled all the strings and that was the main reason we suffered a defeat. We had some chances, especially the one from Chris who I though was unlucky not to get a reward"

What the fans said?

Brentford fan Chris Patterson spoke about his delight at the Bees start to the season,

"I thought we would win today but not so comfortably, I can't believe Greenacre didn't pull one back when he had that chance."

"We've started excellently this year and I just hope we can keep going"

Tranmere fan Ray Allen admitted the best side had won,

"We didn't really create anything clear cut and we didnt deserve to win the game because of it. Brentford dictated the games flow and were able to control the midfield area and make goalscoring oppertunities"
