Brentford would have battered the hatters, then again they have a front three that have scored 49 goals between them plus a midfielder with nine goals on the scoreboard

Positive

We didn't lose after conceding the first goal, a stat which has haunted us this season

Negatives

The injuries to key players are building up

Yet the mighty Brentford lost to Luton in February (despite beating them 7-0 earlier in the season).

That's the championship for you and any team can beat anyone else. Despite Brentford thumping Luton 7-0 we have taken more points than them against Luton.

All games are tough when you're pushing for promotion but Derby away looks their toughest fixture.
My arse is starting to nip now I must admit. I expect West Brom to get back to winning ways tonight although it is a local derby but without fans it sort of evens things up.

Different timescale, Brentford are on a great run now & would have taken their chances

It's not championship football for you, it's typical Leeds, all huff & puff with 27 shots & once again relying on our left-back to stick the ball in the net

We should have beaten them with the amount of chances we had, same old familiar story which never seems to go away

Frigging hell if we can't beat the likes of Luton when we have all the play & chances to boot what is the point of going up to the premiership which I think we will still achieve, my god we'll require some investment though with our midfield that constantly goes missing & we have a striker who can't head a ball.

Hard to think of an answer for that.

With Dallas out for Saturday the lineup will have to be shaken up, especially if Cooper and Pablo can't go. So the injuries are my negative, even more than the dropped points.

The positive is that at least we got the point. A beautiful goal. Alioski has done well the last two games.

Negative: Risky unnecessary passes around defence leading me to believe there are problems further upfield.

Positive: Maintaining the high tempo, struggled to create clear chances, yet still did enough to win.

Sorry Chilli, Sheff Wed v West Brom is not a local derby Image. I have double checked on Google maps Image

If they win the next six, they deserve to go up.
I think they will drop points somewhere, especially if it gets to squeaky bum time with a couple of games to go.
Yes, I know we’re capable of the same 😉

Positive is we're still 6 points clear of 3rd.

Negative is we look like we can still f this up. The lack of a cutting edge has killed us all season and last season too. Bamford is a waste of space. Brentford are chomping up the gap, like them ghosts in Pacman. Brentford have a goal threat and their gd, plus WBA's is worth a point over us.

I really fear for us if it gets tight as I don't feel we have the stomach for it as evidenced last season. If we drop into the play-offs we'll fail as all momentum and composure will be gone.

Positive is that since restart we have taken as many points as WBA and 1 more then Fulham - if that continues we go up.

Negative Brentford have won 3 on the bounce so the gap to 3rd place has gone from 7 points to 6.
