BRENTFORD boss Andy Scott hailed loan star John Bostock as League One's Zinedine Zidane after his double earned the Bees a point against Millwall.
The Tottenham Hotspur youngster joined on a month's loan yesterday, and fired a first-half brace that looked like earning the home side victory, only for Lions substitute James Henry to snatch a last-gasp leveller.
Scott said: "John's a special player. Any lad who's bought for big money at 15 has got to have something.
"He's physially strong, and has outstanding vision. After seeing him in training the lads thought he was Zidane!
"He took his two goals really well."
Brentford broke the deadlock eight minutes in when Bostock wriggled his way through to fire home into the bottom right-hand corner from 12 yards.
However, the Lions levelled when Paul Robinson rose unchallenged to head Chris Hackett's corner home from six yards.
England U19 star Bostock restored the home side's lead on 25 minutes when his inswinging left-footed corner caught out Lions keeper David Forde and sailed into the net (pictured).
Charlie MacDonald came close to clinching the points after the break, and the Bees were made to pay two minutes from time when Millwall substitute James Henry caught out Lewis Price with a 30-yard free-kick.
Bees sub Karleigh Osborne almost snatched the points in stoppage time, but his blockbuster hit the bar as honours ended even in this pulsating London derby.
Scott added: "I thought we were excellent, and deserved more than a point.
"But sometimes you don't get what you deserve. I was delighted with the way we played."
