Tranmere 1-1 Brentford

Jonathan Douglas

A 95th-minute equaliser from Jonathan Douglas earned Brentford a point at League One leaders Tranmere Rovers.

Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro's individual effort shortly after half time looked to have been enough to maintain Tranmere's 100% start at Prenton Park.

The Frenchman had headed wide from a James Wallace cross before he fired past Simon Moore from a tight angle.

But Douglas struck for the Bees in stoppage time, volleying in after Clayton Donaldson's long throw.


Brentford manager Uwe Rosler told BBC London 94.9:

Mixed feelings for Bees boss Rosler

"It's very difficult to say what my emotions are but we are very happy about the point.

"We were 1-0 down with 30 seconds to go and we scored.

"I think we definitely have to be very happy about that point - but tomorrow morning I think I will be disappointed."
