Brentford were involved in an another roller coaster match tonight but held on for all three points at struggling Oldham.

Oldham opened and closed the scoring through Pawell Abott but Brentford took control of the game in between with a brace from Charlie Mac and a first goal from Pim Balkestein.

Mac’s first came from some good work on the right by Lewis Grabban before Pim put Brentford into the lead, converting a Hunt set piece. The lively Macdonald then made things more comfortable with a good run and finish.

Oldham had their chances too – Chesney making one outstanding save – and the Latics missed a late chance from two yards. “That’s why we’re going down” sang the home fans who have lost patience with manager Dave Penney.

Brentford’s star performers last night were Mac, Szczesny and the two centre backs. We lost control of the middle of the park a bit when Bean went off at half-time – possibly due to injury?

Bees – Chesney, Kev, Legge, Pim, Wood (Saunders), Hunt, Dave, Bean (Strevens), Weston, Mac, Grabban (Foster)

Unused Bees – Price, Blake, Cort, Osborne
