Bees taste sweet Toffees success

Published Add your comment

Richard Lee wrote himself into Brentford folklore by saving the spot kick which knocked Everton out of a cracking Carling Cup tie which ended in 4-3 on penalties after a 1-1 draw at Griffin Park.

The scores were level after extra time after Gary Alexander had restored parity for the npower League One side after Seamus Coleman's first Everton goal had given David Moyes' side the lead.

Lee saved Beckford's spot kick with the scores at 3-3 before Charlie MacDonald, who had earlier missed a penalty in normal time , scored to put the pressure on Jagielka, who fired his shot at the post to send the home fans into ecstasy.
