Got the job done tonight but it wasn't always pretty, Brentford are certainly
in a false position they'll be closer to the top 6 than the bottom 3 come May. Played some lovely football and if they had a Gary Hooper up front they'd have probably been out of sight at half time. Thought we were too slow to get started and gave Brentford too much time and space on the ball, needed to get tighter but instead we watched them do what they want for 45 minutes. We equalise just before half time and that changes the game, the second half we controlled and it was always going to be us getting the winner. Then the last 10 minutes we sat back too much and let them come onto us, they should really have got a point but that's what the good sides do in this league they find a way to win. Jack Hunt brilliant yet again along with Gary Hooper and Ross Wallace. Big game at Cardiff on Saturday now, would be pleased with a point there.

Perfect summary, certainly wasn't pretty, but as you say job done.

At the end of the day, you guys deserved the win you got. Only so many times we can keep saying we're in a false position though. I reckon if we played these 7 games again, same teams, we'd have 4 or 5 wins. Just need to get the breaks, which we aren't really getting.

Trouble is, 7 quickly becomes 12 and over a quarter of the season is gone without a win. Need to start picking up results now, or we'll find ourselves too far adrift and chasing to keep up.
