When Brentford travelled to Bournemouth on a boiling hot Bank Holiday Monday in April 2009, they knew a win would not secure promotion, but would go a long way towards it.
Andy Scott's men were battling it out with the likes of Exeter, Wycombe, Bury and Gillingham for the League Two title, two years after being relegated from League One.
However, things were not going well for the Bees in the run up to the Dean Court clash. They had not won in five games, losing to Chesterfield and drawing with Wycombe, Gillingham, Bradford and Exeter.
A win was vital if Brentford were to stay in the mix, but they were up against a Bournemouth side battling relegation but who were no walkovers after overcoming a massive 17-point deduction.
The Bees took the lead four minutes before half time when Billy Clarke, a shrewd loan signing from Ipswich who would score six goals in eight games in his short spell with the club, flicked a header over home keeper Shwan Jalal.
However, four minutes after the break, Brentford's hopes were dealt a blow when former Bees legend Darren Powell, brought back to the club as an experienced head to help them over the line, instead lost his head and was sent off for fighting with his own team-mate, Karleigh Osborne.
That sinking feeling immediately crept into the travelling support. After all, this was the ground where three years previously, their League One promotion hopes had gone up in smoke on the last day of the season.
This time, however, things would be different. Scott had put together a side full of guts, epitomised by Marcus Bean, who had perhaps his finest performance in a Bees shirt that afternoon.
But if Brentford's determination could be summed up by one moment, it was a crunching touchline tackle by another on-loan striker, Sam Williams, which Terry Hurlock would have been proud of.
The rest of the team seemed to take their cue from that, and the willingness of the 10 men to scrap it out and not let their precious lead slip paid off with a 1-0 victory, which was the cue for wild celebrations at the end.
It also proved to be the turning point of what would turn out to be a title winning season for the Bees, sparking a run of four wins from their last five games, the only glitch being a 3-1 reverse at Dagenham & Redbridge.
Also representing the Bees that day were Ben Hamer, Alan Bennett, David Hunt, Ryan Dickson, Sam Wood and Adam Newton, while Mark Phillips, Gary Smith and Marvin Williams came on as subs.
The overall record between the two sides could not be tighter, with both teams having won 37 each and 32 being drawn.
The last meeting was a goalless draw at Griffin Park on New Year's Day 2013, which followed a 2-2 stalemate at Dean Court four months earlier, in which a Harry Forrester strike and a Simon Francis own goal earned the Bees a point.
Bournemouth's last win was a 1-0 home triumph in March 2012, while Brentford's was a 6-0 hammering in the JPT in November 2011 in which Mike Grella struck four goals.
