BRENTFORD survived another test of their ambitions when they held league leaders Wycombe to a goalless draw at Adams Park on Saturday.
That made it four clean sheets in five League Two fixtures for Andy Scott's men, who have only conceded twice in their opening six games of a campaign that shows early signs of promise.
They knocked Dagenham off top spot with a 2-1 win against the east Londoners last week and this result did the same for Wycombe, who had assumed leadership following a win at Rochdale last week.
Scott was delighted by the continuingly fruitful signs and it was the Bees who did most of the pressing, with Wycombe content to sit back and absorb the pressure.
"I thought our general play, our passing, our movement was excellent," said Scott, who felt his team were denied a penalty for a foul on Nathan Elder.
"You need to score when you are on top. Wdidn't capitalise although they defended in numbers, but I'm really seeing a lot of improvement in us."
The point stretches Brentford's unbeaten run to six games since the opening day defeat at Bury and they are sixth in the table. Next up is Lincoln City at home next Saturday.
