Damp squibs, no bangers and dressing room fireworks

So that’s what it feels like to be mugged. Brentford were denied three vital points at Derby County yesterday after Darren Bent’s 92nd minute equaliser levelled things up in a game we could have won by a country mile. But with Birmingham City beating Wolves at St. Andrews (where the rumoured sausage protest failed to materialise) and Ipswich Town only just edging past Blackpool, opportunity still remains directly within our hands to reach the play offs.

Thanks for reading and all your comments over the course of the season. For now, I need to make more space on the site for any follow up. However, ‘close season’ will continue in full, further on.

Brentford travel to Derby County today, with both teams knowing that last night’s victory for Bournemouth (over both Brighton and the ‘manager of the month’ curse) sees them with clear air in the race for promotion from the Championship. Four points is a lovely gap but, of course, everybody else has a chance to play catch up today, including Wolves who visit Birmingham City – where I’m hoping for both a favour aswell as the answer to the question of whether the ‘sausage protest’ is a social media wind up or if it is actually going to happen.

Raining goals…and sausages?

We’ll get onto Brentford and the trip to Derby County in a moment (along with a timely boost from Bournemouth) but I need to start with Birmingham City and their game against our promotion rivals, Wolves, on Saturday.

A story has started to do the rounds about the game at St. Andrews which I have no idea is true, a joke or even something started by Wolves supporters.

Is the sausage protest really going to happen? It's not April 1st...

Is the sausage protest really going to happen? It’s not April 1st…

My interest is largely in the practical aspects. If nothing else, as Absolute Radio football expert Richie Firth mentioned on the Christian O’Connell breakfast show this morning “a sausage could affect the roll of the ball”.
