A tale of two Russells as Bees win, again

23 Mar

Well – that was an exciting afternoon if not an odd evening. Brentford beat Coventry City yesterday to further strengthen their position in the promotion slots along side Wolves, after Leyton Orient were held at Walsall.

And generally, these last two seasons, Brentford fans have been somewhat vocal as we’ve had less than our rub of the green.
