The Opposition View

Following yesterday's 1-1 draw at Brentford, here are some views on the game from Bees' manager Andy Scott and a few of their fans.


Speaking to the BBC and his club's official website, Scott said: "We were poor today but we've got a point out of it when it looked like we weren't going to get anything."

"If you perform like that, you'll be lucky to get something out of it, which we did, and probably in the last ten minutes we looked like the ones who were going to, ironically, go on and win the game."

"We knew Wycombe would make it hard for us, they're fighting for their lives."

"The pitch is awful but we have to accept the conditions, we can't rip it up. It's the same for both sides, and they did it better."

"After that performance, a point is a result we have to be grateful for."



The Brentford fans were also relieved to have taken a point.

'Wycombe wanted it more and fought harder. They'll be annoyed with the draw but then again failure to kill off games like that is probably the reason they're where they are.'

'Well played Wycombe, the much better team on the day. Waddock had done his homework on us and they won the midfield and worked very hard closing us down. I did think we might steal the win after we scored, but didn't deserve anything more than we got.'

'It was a fair result today. Wycombe were poor but if anything we were slightly worse. Turgid stuff. I'll happily accept a point from our worst home performance of the season.'

'Thought Wycombe were better than Gillingham and had a game plan to frustrate us and not let us settle. They doubled up on Weston and never gave him any space to run into.' (until the goal).



Holysmit wrote:
'I think Wycombe are as good as down. I doubt we will play that poorly again and not only could they not beat us, but in all honesty they didn't look like scoring again at any point until Szczesny collided with one of our players and they had an open goal.'



Stanley wrote:
'The state of the pitch was a big factor today, it suited their more direct style and we struggled to get any sort of passing game going.'



The H wrote:
'Pitch is dire, but it didn't stop Wycombe from controlloing the game. Their two midifeliders (including Mousinho) ran rings around our central two.'

'Just thought I'd say how well Wycombe played on an awful pitch today. We didnt play anywhere near as well as we could have done and were lucky to draw. Weston's goal however, was top class. I saw it from right behind him and he picked his spot fantastically well.'

'Once Wycombe scored today we were out of it. Indeed, at the start of the second half our ineptitude was laughable. We scored against the run of play and then looked like we might nick it.'

'Absolutely dreadful game. Keystone cops stuff from Brentford and yet we managed to steal a draw. Wycombe must be cursing how they failed to win.'



paul wrote:
'Their little number eight Keates put some good balls about, although he did put a few astray. Is he the new Doherty but without the nastiness? Looked a good little player. Revell and Harrold gave both CB's a hard time, but still, the Bees grabbed a point.'



Kingston Bee wrote:
'At least we took something from the game when we probably didn't deserve it. Very similar to the game against Wycombe away when we just couldn't get going. Credit must go to Wycombe and Waddock for stopping us playing.'



Beeseen wrote:
'Awful match. We tried to give Wycombe three points but apart from the goal and our keeper running into our centre back, they created nothing, therefore they didn't deserve to win. The fact they were wasting time after 50 minutes suggests their players didn't believe it either. A draw was a fair result on the basis that both teams were crap.'
