ANDY SCOTT reckons Brentford should make the League Two play-offs on their current form.

Scott revealed his target after Tuesday night's 2-1 win at Barnet, which put the Bees seven points off a place in the end of season lottery, with games in hand.

The hard-fought win, after Brentford had seen Gary Smith sent off, was a return to form following Saturday's 1-1 draw with Shrewsbury Town at Griffin Park.

He said: "I've been told Bristol Rovers were on the same points as us at the same stage last season, and they won the play-offs.

"I want 10 or 11 wins from our last 16 games, which is a big ask. But if Bristol Rovers can do it, so can we.

"You always get one team making a late surge like they did, and there's no reason why it can't be us.

"Our goal is the play-offs. But then, I don't like looking too far ahead. If we go and lose to Accrington Stanley on Saturday, all our hard work in beating Barnet will have been for nothing."

Scott was particularly pleased with the way his 10 men coped with everything Barnet could throw at them after Smith was sent off early in the second half at Underhill.

He said: "The character we have in the dressing room at the moment is amazing. They have bonded on and off the pitch.

"The result is we have so much belief that we still believe we are going to win games, even when we are down to 10 men."

And he had a word of consolation for Smith, whose early bath means he will miss Saturday's home game with Accrington.

Scott said: "I have no complaints about the sending off. The lads dug Gary out of hole, but he will do the same for them in many a game."
