Brentford Paper Review

11 April 2013

See how the press reported our 2-0 loss

The Sun

MARCELLO TROTTA scored a stunning volley with his second touch to keep Brentford on course to go up.
Bradley Wright-Phillips gave the Bees a 12th-minute lead from Shaleum Logan’s cross before sub Trotta stole the show as Crewe’s faint play-off hopes faded.
Uwe Rosler’s Brentford are now third in League One, two points behind second-placed Bournemouth but with a game in hand.
Rosler said: “I highlighted this as a must-win game and we had 24 shots. We clearly deserved to win. I’ve seldom seen such concentration from us.”

The Sentinel

IT was a bump back to reality for Wembley winners Crewe as Brentford showed just what it takes to challenge at the top of League One.
The Alex had gone into last night's match with faint play-off hopes still lingering, but the title-chasing Bees produced a display of pressing, fast play and movement which earned them an all-too-comfortable 2-0 victory.
It was Bradley Wright-Phillips who opened the scoring when he capped an excellent team move on 12 minutes.
And Marcello Trotta came off the bench in the closing stages to make it 2-0 seven minutes from time to put a deserved gloss on a victory which takes the visitors to within two points of second-placed Bournemouth while still boasting a game in hand.

Hounslow Chronicle

BRENTFORD closed the gap on the automatic promotion places with an impressive win at Gresty Road.
Well-taken goals from Bradley Wright-Phillips and substitute Marcello Trotta sealed victory for the Bees to climb up to third, just two points behind second-place Bournemouth with a game in hand on their rivals.

Marcello Trotta’s late goal, scored less than two minutes after he came on as a substitute, sealed a victory that keeps Brentford in the race for automatic promotion.
Uwe Rosler’s side, who took an early lead courtesy of Bradley Wright-Phillips, moved back up to third in the table – only two points behind second-placed Bournemouth.
