Bees extend run: Match Review

A patched-up Brentford side missing seven first-team regulars stretched their unbeaten run to 11 games with a 1-1 draw at home to Yeovil.

The visitors took the lead after just three minutes when they were awarded a controversial penalty for handball by Charlie MacDonald and former Brentford player Gavin Tomlin stepped up to convert.

The Londoners dominated for the rest of the game but could not find a way through Yeovil's dogged defence until the 77th minute.

MacDonald was brought down on the edge of the box and Sam Saunders stepped up to curl a delightful free-kick around the wall and into the bottom corner.

The visitors were lucky to survive a strong penalty shout just before the break when MacDonald was bundled over in the box.

But it was Brentford keeper Wojciech Szczesny who ensured a point for the Bees with a reflex save to deny Tomlin an injury-time winner.
