Jake Reeves replaced the suspended Saville in the Bees line up who started the game very well.
The Home keeper was panicked into bringing down Sam Saunders as he ran on to a ball down the very edge of the penalty box. Forshaw smashing home the result spot kick high and to the right into the Swindon goal.
Clayton missed a sitter and should have double the Bees lead when he hit the post after Trotta had danced down the wing with ball glued to his boot before putting in a n excellent cross.
Peterbourgh equalised with a win assisted goal that seemed to catch most people out including Button in the Brentford goal. Payne ran with ball before unleashing a speculative shot from about 30 yards, to many it looked like it was going over but at the last minute the wind caused it to dip and it was in off of the underside of the crossbar.
Whilst the Posh fans were still chanting ‘Your not Singing anymore’ the Bees bounced straight back, with Trotta providing the assist to Saunders who curled the ball low in to the right hand corner to score his fourth goal in four games.
The Bees were now the better team, playing flowing football in very difficult conditions and playing Peterborough of off their own pitch.
the power house of Brentford’s midfiled and for many the orchestrator of Brentfords amazing run of form, Douglas limped off with a hamstring to be replaced by Toumani.
When the second half started the linesman gave Brentford a penalty that the referee appeared to miss when Donaldson was fouled on the edge of the area.
Forshaw, confident from his first blast decided to place his second penalty diagonally opposite his first, but Olejnik in the Posh goal, guessed correctly and dived to his right to save.
The save motivated the home side who began to really come at the Bees in search of an equaliser
Saunders was replaced by Dallas who probably should have down better when Trotta had waltzed through the Posh defence and Olejnik parried his low shot in to Dallas path.
With MacCormack move into a midfield role, Logan replaced Reeves with 15 minutes on the clock.
Five minutes of extra time were added by the referee and as Brentford held on Dallas sent a perfect ball into the advance of the Clayton which The Don smashed home from the edge of the six yard box to send the travelling support so crazy that that the whole team bar the keeper just had to join in the celebrations.
