Brentford’s Championship season continued with a two-two against Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday as Dean Smith retained an unbeaten start to his spell as Bees boss.

Having won his first game in charge at home against MK Dons things started well at Fulham with Ashley Richards’ foul on Jake Bidwell giving Brentford an early penalty and chance to take the lead.

This was taken as Alan Judge converted from the spot but with half time approaching James Tarkowski headed into his own net to get the Cottagers level.

Around the midway point of the second half Ross McCormack provided Moussa Dembele with a chance, which the Fulham striker took to see the hosts come from behind to lead. This was short lived though as Tarkowski made amends for his own goal as he provided the flick on to Jack O’Connell to secure a point with 20-minutes left.

Before Brentford had taken the lead Nico Yennaris and Lasse Vibe both had chances for the Bees with David Button making a good save late on to deny McCormack a winner from a freekick.

The other results were.

Friday 11th December 2015
Blackburn 1-0 Rotherham
Wolves 1-1 Nottm Forest

Saturday 12th December 2015
MK Dons 0-1 Ipswich
Cardiff 2-2 Sheff Wed
Charlton 0-0 Leeds
Derby 2-2 Brighton
Fulham 2-2 Brentford
Huddersfield 1-2 Bristol City
Hull 1-0- Bolton
Middlesbrough 0-0 Birmingham
Preston 1-0 Reading
QPR 0-0 Burnley

Looking at these results the stand out ones (as such) have to be the wins for Ipswich, Bristol City and Preston for me?

Ipswich winning one-nil at MK Dons saw the Tractor Boys into the play-off places and as much as that win wasn’t a surprise in many way they did win it was another good win that sets them up nicely and saw Mick McCarthy celebrate his MotM win with a victory!

For only a second time away from Ashton Gate three-points were collected by Bristol City in a relegation battle with Huddersfield that the Robins came out two-one winners in.

Preston followed up the win at Burnley with another when managerless Reading continued to struggle (and dropped to 12th) at Deepdale with the Lilywhites victorious one-nil.
