A well supported Swindon side, were first out of the box and dominated the first half.

An error from Dean gifted Swindon a goal and the away side should have doubled their lead shortkly after when the ball was smashed against the post.

The Bees started the second half with the same team but the introduction of Saunders for Dallas and then Bradley Wright Phillips for Trotta proved to be aTactical master poiece by Uwe in 100th game in charge.

Before the subs Swindon had a goal disallowed for offside.

BWP put Calyton through for a 1:1 on with the Swindon keeper Foderingham who brought down Clayton to concede a penalty. The Griffin park crowd bayed for the keeper to be sent off and booed the ref Atwell when he only brandished a yellow.

Saunders and Forshaw stood together with the ball on the penalty spot, but it was Saunders who took the kick with confidence to pull the Bees level.

The BIAS stand had been in good voice all evening and with Bill Axeby and the Paddock singing too the Bees were now rampant.

Clayton received the ball from an Adeyemi header and hit the ball on the volley to send the home stands of GP wild with delight.

The Bees were now winning and on top and creating chance after chance.

A game that Brentford looked set to loose could have finished with a 7-1 victory but at the end of the five minutes extra time the Bees were victorious by two goals to one.

Clayton who was mobbed when he scored earlier was given the biggest of man hugs by Uwe.
