Greville Waterman on progress to the second round of the Carling Cup for the first time in, ooh, ages.
Two first half goals from new boys Robbie Simpson and Craig Woodman ensured Brentford's progress into the second round of the Carling Cup despite a late flurry from the visitors.
In truth the margin of victory should have been far more convincing with Osborne and Legge heading against the crossbar and Forster, Alexander and MacDonald all going close.
Simpson caught the eye on the right wing, all pace and power and his far post header from a pinpoint Woodman centre gave the Bees the lead.
A lead doubled by before the interval by a curling long range free kick from the fullback with the goalkeeper distracted by the presencer of Pim Balkestein.
Jeffers halved the deficit after the excellent Simon Moore spilled ex-loanee Frankie Artus's deflected long range free kick and the visitors threatened an unlikely equaliser.
All in all a decent performance from the Bees with Sam Wood full of energy, vigour and vim on the left wing.
Bean and O'Connor worked hard without too much inspiration in midfield and the defense settled down after a shaky start.
The season is off and running after Saturday's poor start and once Weston and Dave return to strengthen an already strong squad the future looks bright for the Bees.
