Awayday blues in the right way

Andy Munro on Blues’ 1-1 draw at Brentford.

Yet another excellent result, away to the second highest scorers in the Championship. This was a team who have always had the Indian sign on the Blues and beat us to the point of embarrassment last season. Yet we were substantially the better side until Kleftenbeld was sent off to appease the home side – let’s hope Blues appeal.

After carving out one or two early chances, Blues eventually took the lead when Morrison showed he hasn’t lost the knack of scoring from set pieces with a superb header- Morrison is a fellow who is 5’11 but jumps 6’6.

Although Brentford had one or two chances, Blues looked the likelier to score until the home side equalized following a free kick. Maybe Camp could have done better and he made up for that with a couple of excellent second half saves.

After the restart we still looked clearly the better side until the sending off. In fairness, we may have a thin squad but nevertheless bringing on the young and energetic Mahony and the bombastic Bogle is a bonus as they can set a different sort of problem to the opposition. This could be a good season, EFL permitting.
