Poor Robins Easily Beaten By Brentford

League One leaders Brentford had no problem extending their unbeaten run when they came up against Bristol City at Griffin Park on Tuesday.

They got off to a flying start and were in front after just nine minutes when Aden Flint turned the ball into his own net from a cross put in by Jake Bidwell.

But that lead lasted just three minutes before Karleigh Osborne picked up the ball and lashed home from a full 25 yards to score against his former employers. He then went down injured, having to be replaced by Brendan Moloney.

The Bees were back in front on 26 minutes as Alan Judge finished off a fine team move, Parish did get a hand to his shot but the ball bounced up before coming down under the crossbar.

That more or less finished the Robins off and it looked just a case of how many Brentford would finish with.

The answer to that soon came, a cross from Judge found an unmarked Trotta and he side footed home.

Anyone would have thought that the second half may have brought a glut of goals but there were no clear cut chances for either side.

Brentford: Button, Logan, O`Connor, Craig, Douglas, Saville, McCormack (Reeves 69), Donaldson, Trotta (Akpom 74), Judge (Grigg 74).

Bristol City: Parish, Williams, Flint, Baldock (Emmanuel-Thomas 64), Cunningham, El-Abd, Pack (Eliott 45), Barnett, Elliott, Gillett, Osborne (Moloney 14).

Attendance: 6,567.

"That`s the first time I`ve been really disappointed with them," Steve Cotterill told Bristol City Player after the game.

"We actually started ok and could`ve got our noses in front.

"But we`ve gone behind against the run of play, got back in the game with a wonderful strike at a big cost - losing Karleigh with a hamstring injury.

"We`ve given away two soft goals before half-time and there was no way we looked like getting back in the game after that.'
