Brentford 3 Cardiff City 2

Brentford gave a performance that had the home crowd buzzing and singing as they came back from 2 nil down to deservedly win.

The Bees defence started the game slowly and Cardiff waltzed into a two goal league after the Bees were forund wanting at the back. New keeper David Button signed from Charlton could do little about any of the Cardiff goals.

It looked like Cardiff were going to tear our bees apart. Both of their goals looked easy but the bees heads did not drop and the fight back had begun

The Bees went close a couple of times forcing Lewis in the Cardiff goal to make some good saves.

The Bees first was scored by Conor McAleny who received the ball from Saville slotted home just before half time.

McAleny scored a second and showed the Bees fans what they had to look forward too when he ran through the Cardiff defence, cut inside and with a curling right foot shot into the corner of the net drew the Bees level.

Both teams made quite a few substitutions which only demonstrated the strength in depth of this Bees squad.

Dallas gave another impressive performance as the Bees began to dominate. The Bees passing and movement was a joy to watch as they held possession and pushed forward.

The Bees were playing exhibition football and for the last few minutes looked in total control.

The goal came after a move containing 20, 25 maybe even 30 passes as the ball was spayed acropss the excellent looking Griffin Park pitch with pin point accuracy. Dallas who will surely have a big part to play this season delivered the final cross which was slotted home by a slimmed down Hayes who has clearly benefited from whole pre-season.

It might have only been a friendly but that goal was so special. The BIAS stand were in full voice and the sound of We’re by far the Greatest Team was soon being sung the length of the Bees United stand.

A few more will definitely be travelling to Port Vale on Saturday after this performance
