Key Events

Smith reaction and goodbye

Here’s what Dean Smith had to say after the game. Enjoy the evening and safe journey home to the travelling Bees fans.

FULL TIME: Burton 3-5 Brentford

What a mental game. The worst of the Bees in the first half was followed by the best of them in the second. Brentford are at 50 points.

Cauley Woodrow gave it the big un after Burton made it 1-1 and Brentford fans are giving it back to him with avengance now. He who laughs last, laughs longest.

GOAL! Burton 3-5 Brentford (Jota 86)

Brentford haved turned on the style. Lasse Vibe puts the ball in the six yard box and Jota expertly turns the ball home.

GOAL! Burton 3-4 Brentford (Lasse Vibe 85)

BRENTFORD LEAD! Lasse Vibe turns home Florian Jozefzoon’s cross and Brentford are in front. What a comeback!

Treble block

Brentford could lead as Jota is denied by McLaughlin, who gets up to deny Yennaris and then the Brentford man has a shot blocked

Alan McCormack comes on for Romaine Sawyers

Cauley Woodrow should have put Burton back in front but he misses an open goal after Dan Bentley made a fine save from Michael Kightly

So close! Nearly an instant impact from Florian Jozefzoon. He plays a one-two with Jota but his shot is cleared off the line.

4,549 are here today.

Two goal Canos is replaced by Florian Jozefzoon. Just over 20 minutes to go.

YELLOW: Jota

Jota goes into the book for a trip

Jota goes close. Whatever Dean Smith said has worked. And Nico Yennaris comes on for Konstantin Kerschbaumer.

GOAL! Burton 3-3 Brentford (Sergi Canos 61)

GET IN! Sergi Canos gets through on goal, rounds McLaughlin and tucks home from a narrow angle

Burton playing a 9-0-1 formation. Currently 21 players are in the Burton half, however the Bees lose the ball and the Brewers surge forward. Woods half clears a cross and Woodrow fires a tame shot into Bentley’s hands.

Good play from Brentford - whatever Dean Smith said to them at half time, and we would guess that it went along the lines of ‘you got yourselves into this mess, now you sort it out’, has worked. Harlee Dean gets forward and his shot is saved by McLaughlin

Brentford are on the front foot now and are looking to turn the screw. Burton are happy to play on the counter

GOAL! Burton 3-2 Brentford (Vibe 51)

Brentford fans are trying to rouse their team and Harlee Dean charges into the Burton half. Jota works the ball to Lasse Vibe who rifles home. Brentford back in it.

No half time substitutions

HALF TIME:

Woeful. Worrying. Abysmal. All descriptions that accurately describe Brentford’s first half showing here. Sergi Canos gave the Bees the lead but two identical Marvin Sordell goals and a Cauley Woodrow free kick have put the Brewers well on top. As bad as Tuesday? Worse in my view.

Another Burton corner

It goes behind for a goal kick - hallelujah

The announcer harnesses his inner Yogi Berra by going ‘It’s deja vu all over again’ as Burton celebrate that goal. This is absolutely abysmal from Brentford.

GOAL! Burton 3-1 Brentford (Woodrow 41)

Romaine Sawyers gives away a free kick for bringing down Luke Murphy. Woodrow wants to take it - he does and scores

Have Brentford learned their lesson? Burton corner. Christensen takes but it’s a bit deeper and the Bees scramble it clear!

Attack, Attack, Attack Attack Attack - that’s what the Brentford fans are singing. They want the Bees to sharpen up and show more in the final third. They win a corner as Jota’s deflected shot is turned behind by Jon McLaughlin. The corner is wasted

Got to say this feels very much like Tuesday still from Brentford, bar the one moment of quality for the opening goal. Brentford need to sort this out and quickly.

Another corner to the near post. Another flick on. Another Marvin Sordell goal. That is woeful from the Brentford defenders.

GOAL! Burton 2-1 Brentford (Sordell 23)

Carbon copy

GOAL! Burton 1-1 Brentford (Marvin Sordell 21)

Brentford concede from a corner. They fail to deal with the ball into the box and Marvin Sordell turns the ball home. Cauley Woodrow, on loan from Fulham, gives it the big one to the Brentford fans.
