Brentford 1-0 Crawley Town- Match Report

Last updated : 08 April 2014
Bees edge closer to promotionBrentford tightened their grip on an automatic-promotion spot with a hard fought 1-0 win over relegation-threatened Crawley.Jonathan Douglas headed the only goal of the game just before the hour, glancing Alan Judge's left-wing cross past the despairing hand of goalkeeper Paul Jones.And with Rotherham losing at Sheffield United, the Londoners stretched their points advantage to nine over the Millers.It was one-way traffic as the Bees laid siege to the visitors' goal against a resolute and well disciplined Crawley defence.Clayton Donaldson could have put the hosts ahead inside three minutes, flashing a low drive across goal.Judge volleyed inches wide and Alan McCormack stung the keeper's hands with a fizzing low drive as Brentford piled forward trying to break the deadlock.After Douglas opened the scoring, Stuart Dallas almost made it two with a blistering drive brilliantly saved by the legs of keeper Jones.Dallas might have eased the Griffin Park crowd's nerves in the dying minutes, which also saw Paul Connolly clash with a home supporter, but his low sidefooted drive from a Jake Bidwell cross was blocked on the line
