Unbeaten run continues - but only just
Home game against Crystal Palace that the pundits were forecasting us to win, but as a lifelong Bees supporter I never take it as a given that we will win any game. A goalless first half with Norgaard and Mbeumo shooting wide. Norgaard goes close in the second half but Palace come in to the game and take the lead with a header in the 69th minute (ball watching, similar to the Arsenal goal). They nearly get a second soon after. We push forward and have a number of chances to equalise and there are 6 minutes of added on time. With the score at 0-1 a reporter writes on the BBC Sport website "Crystal Palace secured their first Premier League win of 2023, ending Brentford's 10 game unbeaten run in the process.” Upset, I start to update my website with details of the defeat only to see that in the 96th minute Janelt heads an equaliser from a Mbeumo cross. I hope the reporter apologises. I am happy with a point.
