Brentford (A) - 12:30pm KO (Sat 22nd Feb 2020)

Recommended Posts

Expected a point, got a point, could have been more, could have been less to be fair.

Two soft penalties evened it up and some weak finishing by both teams or it could have gone either way.

We still can't seem to break that glass ceiling and sit in a play off spot even for a few hours!

For 71 mins we were in 6th...

Frustrations but a good away point at one of the top 3.

Ya I don't think Armstrong was offside at the end either 

Finally we are involved in an entertaining game on sky.

Disappointing that we haven’t won this when 2nil up with 30 to go. Seems decisions didn’t go our way but they probably derserved it as sounds like they dominated it. On paper it’s an excellent result and keeps up our momentum. Big 2 home games ahead

Despite losing a 2-0 lead cannot fault anything with that performance against a very good side going forward. They have a lot of quick talented forwards with lost of movement. A wonder goal and a never in a million years penalty cost us. The wind battered us 2nd half as well.

I'd have taken this result before the game. 

Armstrong and Travis immense and look dangerous on the break. 

On to the next one!

Would have took a point before the game but we did really well today. 

Armstrong should have hat trick today. 

But we were robbed by a ref and linesman being weak again. When will the EFL start getting better refs. It's a joke.

Oh you're so mean Stuart. Twerp. 

Keep forgetting you don’t do colloquial conversation after a certain point.

It was never a dive in a million years so you are wrong - better?

Cheated by the linesman at the death. Lucky for him Arma is no good when one-on-one.

He’s the worst one on one. Scores the hard goals and misses the sitters. Ah well even at 2-0 down that’s a good result. Let’s hope Preston don’t get a win today & with there next few games we still have a chance.

I actually don't think either keeper has made any incredible saves today, both made a few smart stops but nothing you wouldn't expect your keeper to, some weak finishing by both teams at times

 

Walton been solid though more so than Raya

I think this is fair but a lot seem to want to justify selling raya . Who cares he’s not ours . Walton is sort of ours that’s the only keeper I care about . 
I just don’t see the point in not being objective about decisions either , eg our pen I don’t think it was a pen but I don’t care , we got it

Well we'll.  Good point I'd have taken before the game.  Was Armstrong really offside at.the death.  Officiating cost us 3 points again.  Good game, Brentford a better team than us.

Absolutely disgusting dive for Brentford for their penalty. One of the most unjust decisions I have seen in my life. I really, really, really don't give a shit about how this is "just part of football." I really don't. Either we have a sport, a league that punishes clear cheaters, or it's just whatever goes. 0 point, absolutely 0 point to follow a sport that wouldn't punish a disgusting diving team like Brentford.

A good battling point.

Disappointing having led by 2 goals but would have settled for point before match.

Two 'lucky' penalties cancelled each other out so neither manager can complain.

One far luckier than the other. Raya was all over Buckley. Their guy just blatantly dived.

Luck evens itself out though across the season.

We deserved a point and they deserved one at least. End to end second half and how many teams go to Brentford and score 2?

Next two games are season defining imo. At least 4 out of 6 would set us up very nicely going into the final stretch.

Very entertaining game and Rovers were in it right to the final whistle.

Fair play to both sides....a superbly taken goal for each side worthy of the Top flight.

It looked even less offside on the replay. It’s when the ball is kicked by a teammate...

I'm going for 2-2 

On their day, they are deadly going forward.

1-0 Armstrong.     13

1-1 Watkins.          25

2-1 Lenihan.          61

Lenihan Red Card 78

2-2 Benrahma.     88

 

 Nearly correct with the goalscorers.
