Nottingham Forest v Brentford. Post match debrief and player ratings.

6 Nov

Brentford held to a 2-2 draw at Nottingham Forest. The prospect of a trip to Manchester City next up for a team that, despite the enforced changes and injuries, can feel hard done by not to have come away with all three points. The hosts, lucky to end the game with eleven players after a somewhat petulant display from their ‘keeper. Likewise, fortunate not to have further questions asked about the nonsense in the warm up where the blunt end of a pitchfork seemed to be involved in some unorthodox action. Sh*thousery is alive and well at the City Ground.

Dean Henderson, yesterday

As ever at this juncture, time to see who was the star player for Brentford. Who made up the top five against Nottingham Forest and will anyone have earned a start against Manchester City on Saturday?

And as ever, the answers are here in the post match debrief and player ratings feature. Enjoy…

    Devastated not to get the 3 points, but oddly fortunate to get away with 1 point.

    The traditional phrase ‘its Brentford innit’ comes to mind after the finale. Thomas’s odd obsession to make sure he uses all available subs did bite us on the backside. With the odd tactic change going to 5 back with the introduction of Zanka led us to play deeper and invite Forest in. As much as i love Saman, his late introduction for the now consistent Jensen, was another pointless & unsettling change. Have to agree with your Top 2 for Player of the Match. But there were some awful displays too. JDS, Vitaly, KLP, Roerslev all having 5/10 displays

    Nothing is more disappointing than conceding at the last minute. At the start of the game I would have been happy with a point, but the way we fought back gave me hope and made me raise my expectations. What a shame. Another “must-win” game that we didn’t win!
