Neil Harris has quickly restored a bit of pride in our club with another draw, this time away to promotion-chasing.
Before kick-off a point would have been considered a step in the right direction but after being 2-0 up in the 85th minute most of us expected to close the match out.
Sadly Martyn Woolford conceded a penalty that was converted and then, a last-minute clearance from young Sid Nelson went straight to Moses Odubajo who found the back of the net to our supporters’ dismay.
Despite writing off our chances of survival myself after our defeat at Rotherham five matches before the Brentford game, there have been opportunities to put ourselves within touching distance of safety.
But we are still seven points behind with only seven matches left.
We would need Rotherham to completely collapse and for us to suddenly start winning matches.
At least both our strikers Lee Gregory and Aiden O’Brien netted at Griffin Park – an early look at what could well be our strike partnership next season.
The far post header by O’Brien was his first goal in first team football and will do his confidence a power of good.
I’m really excited about how he can develop over the coming seasons. He has got pace and skill an can play either up front or on the wing. Hopefully our Youth Academy have uncovered a gem here.
A goal-scoring striker is the most expensive position to purchase a player for. It’s a position we have desperately needed to fill for a long time and we might have a player from our own youth set-up who could do it.
Fellow first-team striker Lee Gregory is benefitting from having someone alongside him.
Too long this season he was asked to do the job up front on his own and looked woefully out of his depth. But his last few performances have shown positives.
We will almost certainly go down this season but at least we have some promising signs for next season.
