Brentford picked up their first point of the season but they will feel like it's two points dropped after Bobby Reid scored a late equaliser to steal a point for Bristol City.
The Bees had 24 shots to the Robins' seven, 10 of those were on target but for the brilliance of Frank Fielding in the City goal, the west Londoners would have walked it.
Josh Brownhill scored the opener for the visitors after being presented the chance after Yoann Barbet's poor clearance.
Fielding denied a host of players, notably Henrik Dalsgaard and Romaine Sawyers, as he made single handed bid to win the game for the visitors.
However, Ollie Watkins scored a fine headed goal from a Jota cross and Neal Maupay's strike looked to have won it.
However, a late defensive lapse allowed Bobby Reid in to rescue a point the Robins scarcely deserved.
Below are five thoughts to emerge from the game.
Football comes second
My heart goes out to Ryan Woods and his loved ones after the tragedy that befell them last week.
I'm left with the question; why do bad things happen to good people?
The action on the pitch felt secondary to the sadness that everyone connected with Brentford Football Club, and any decent human being, will be feeling about this awful situation.
Fielding of nightmares (from a Brentford perspective)
The best player on the pitch was Frank Fielding who had an absolute stormer.
That, of course, is a testament to the one-sided nature of the contest. Fielding made a number of excellent saves with Jota, Henrik Dalsgaard and Romaine Sawyers all denied.
On another day, Brentford would have claimed a comfortable victory and Fielding is the primary reason the Robins picked up a point they scarcely deserved.
Yoann Barbet admitted fault for the Bristol City opener after botching a clearance and the Bees panicked in stoppage time and allowed them an equaliser.
That being said, it was a much improved defensive performance over the 90 minutes of action.
Harlee Dean and the Frenchman have a good understanding and, on another day, they would have celebrated a clean sheet.
You make your own luck
If all three of Brentford's league fixtures were played again then the Bees could easily be sitting on top of the table with nine points.
You can point to the big chances missed at Sheffield United, the two Andreas Bouchalakis wondergoals conceded against Nottingham Forest and the performance of Frank Fielding for Bristol City.
That's not going to continue for the whole season. There will be a game where an opponent is on the end of a hiding.
It hasn't been Lasse Vibe's season so far, despite his best efforts and Neal Maupay has looked lively coming off the bench in the past two games, scoring in both of them.
The Frenchman must surely be coming into contention to start at Ipswich as he has made a positive difference in his cameos so far.
If Bristol City snatching a point at the death was a robbery then the reported £1.5million Brentford paid for Ollie Watkins is an absolute steal.
The former Exeter man was absolutely superb for the Bees and terrorised the Robins back line for 90 minutes.
So far, that signing has lived up to the hype around it and, from previous interviews with Watkins, he will be looking at how he can improve further.
