Brentford new-boy Marcus Bean wants to put a nightmare two years behind him and help the Bees to promotion.

Bean made just 23 starts in all for the Lancashire-based club, and the former QPR midfielder was quick to fire a parting shot at Blackpool boss Simon Grayson.

He said: "I'm just glad to be leaving to be honest. I felt I wasn't given a fair crack of the whip while I was there.

"I found myself frozen out without much explanation, and the gaffer was never really honest with me.

"Andy Scott phoned me towards the end of the season. I came down and trained for a few days and liked what I saw, and obviously he did too. This is a League One club playing in League Two, and hopefully we can do something about that this season."
