Bees earn point in belter at Griffin Park

Final Score Brentford 3-3 Derby County

Said Benraham’s 83rd minute equaliser was enough to earn Brentford a point in an entertaining game at Griffin Park.

Both teams had ample amount of chances to win it but neither side looked like they would hold onto a lead long enough to do so.

A first half that was full of goals saw Derby County open the scoring after thirteen minutes through Harry Wilson.  

Neal Maupay scored his first goal in five games for the home side to cap off a flying first half of football that ended 2-2.

Julian Jeanvier brought Brentford back into it ten minutes after Wilson’s opener. His unmarked volley, off a Benrahma corner, found the bottom right of the Derby goal.

Derby went in front again just three minutes after Jeanvier’s equaliser. Jayden Bogle waltzed, unchallenged, into Brentford’s box to score his first senior goal.

The second half started much the same as the first, with high energy and physicality from both sides.

Ashley Cole went down in the Brentford box but was booked by referee, John Brooks, for diving. Much too the anger of the travelling fans and the players.

Derby went ahead again through Wilson. His second of the day made easy for him by a fine through pass from team-mate Fikayo Tomori.

However, when Benraham equalised late in the game, it seemed to burst the energetic bubble that had been present throughout the game.

A late push from Derby to find a winner in the five minutes added time looked laboured. The visitors looking physically drained in their efforts by the end.
