HEAD-TO-HEAD: BRENTFORD

13 September 2014



Brighton & Hove Albion will travel to Griffin Park for the first time in three-and-a-half years on Saturday when they take on Brentford.

The two sides have met on 66 occasions and Albion have the edge overall, with 30 victories to Brentford’s 24, along with 12 draws.



Here are three games from the archives:

Tuesday 8th March 2011
League One
Brentford 0 Albion 1


An own goal from Bees defender Karleigh Osborne gave Albion three crucial points on their way to claiming the League One title. Casper Ankergren was inspired on the day and made a number of superb saves, denying Sam Saunders on three separate occasions. Gus Poyet’s side had the chance to take the lead when Osborne brought down Glenn Murray inside the box, only for Richard Lee to save Ashley Barnes’s resulting penalty. But the points were secured 15 minutes from time and summed up a miserable day for Osborne, who side-footed a harmless cross past Lee to give Albion victory.

Saturday 15th August 2009
League One
Brentford 0 Albion 0


Albion travelled to newly-promoted Brentford and claimed a point in an entertaining, yet goalless encounter. The Bees nearly stole the points in the closing stages when Marcus Bean got on the end of a Cleveland Taylor cross, but Michel Kuipers ensured Albion left Griffin Park with a point thanks to a fine save. The Seagulls also played their part going forward and tested keeper Lewis Price with strikes from Alan Navarro and Mark Wright. Midfielder Kevin McLeod also went close for the Albion as the two sides shared the spoils.

Saturday 14th November 1987
FA Cup first round
Brentford 0 Albion 2


A second-half brace, including a penalty from Garry Nelson, was enough for Albion to battle past their third division counterparts at Griffin Park. The win sparked an impressive cup run for Barry Lloyd’s side, who would get past Northampton and Bournemouth in rounds two and three respectively to set up a glamour tie with Arsenal in round four. The Seagulls ended up being narrowly beaten 2-1 by the Gunners, despite Nelson being on target again.
