09/11/2013. Brentford Town v Staines Town. FA Cup.
Today I was covering Staines Town v Brentford FC, the first time that I have been at Griffin Park since 2001. My brief was Staines Attack, which was a shame as there wasn’t very much of a Staines attack as they went down 5-0 in the end. They were outclassed by a team that is I think, three leagues higher, and the class did show. If I was being harsh I would say it was like Men versus boys.
I don’t think that the Brentford keeper was required to make any actual saves, just plucked a couple of crosses out of the air. Otherwise until the last five minutes I think he had a problem keeping warm. However in the last 5-10 minutes Staines Town went close on a couple of occasions.
