Wycombe 0-1 Brentford

Brentford's impressive start to the season continued with a hard-fought win over Wycombe.

The Bees dominated early on and got their reward, Kevin O'Connor smashing home a penalty after James Tunnicliffe fouled Clayton Donaldson.

The Chairboys fought back, Ben Strevens' strike hitting the post and Andy Sandell's free-kick forcing a good save from Brentford's Richard Lee.

The result leaves Wycombe looking for their first home win of the season.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Wycombe manager Gary Waddock told BBC Three Counties Radio:

Waddock bemoans 'harsh' penalty

"We came up against a very good side who have started the season really well. I was pleased with the performance but we've been done because of a penalty decision.

"There were a number of challenges throughout the game and I think the referee was possibly the only one that saw it. It didn't look a penalty to me. I have watched it four or five times and I still feel the same.

"If we continue to play that way, we will pick up points."

Rosler praises Brentford defending

Brentford manager Uwe Rosler told BBC London 94.9:

"The game was similar to the one at Walsall. First half was excellent, we got the goal and had a few big chances.

"In the second half we lost control too early and were dropping too deep when we attacked. But our back four defended excellently in the box.

"Richard Lee is a very good goalkeeper for us, and it takes a lot to beat him. I was very pleased with our defending in the box."
