Wycombe Wanderers 4-1-2-1-2

Half Time: 2 - 2 Griffin Park ( Attendance: NA )
1 min

Brentford dominated with five second-half goals to grab an incredible 7-2 win over Wycombe Wanderers at the Brentford Community Stadium. 

The Bees found an early goal on nine minutes through Ethan Pinnock, the defender connecting well with a Mathias Jensen corner to open the scoring.

However, Wycombe responded with an incredible solo goal from Uche Ikpeazu just five minutes later, beating three Brentford players before curling a delightful effort into the far corner.

The two sides then exchanged late first-half goals as Tarique Fosu turned in Ivan Toney’s saved volley on 41 minutes and Admiral Muskwe headed home from close range on 43 minutes to bring an eventful half of football to a close. 

Tariqe Fosu re-established Brentford’s advantage six minutes after the interval with an arrowed finish to make it 3-2 before Ivan Toney dispatched a clinical penalty five minutes later to further strengthen Brentford’s lead.

But the scoring wasn’t finished there with the Bees closing the game out in style with a lovely goal from Sergi Canos, a second from Toney, and a seventh from Josh Dasilva.

Key Moment

Tariqe Fosu’s arrowed finish gave Brentford an early second-half advantage and the Bees never looked back.

Moan of the Match

Set pieces gave Brentford an absolute nightmare today with Wycombe appearing to win every ball in the air – largely due to poor defending from the Bees.

Talking Point

The Bees absolutely pummelled Wycombe in the second-half – will this game prove to be a statement win in a potentially promotion winning season?

Man of the Match

Tariqe Fosu – another brilliant game from the winger, scoring two big goals as his lethal form continues.

Referee Watch

Michael Salisbury (Lancashire) – kept good control of a game with lots of fouls and plenty of goals.


Any fan would gladly have exchanged the comfort of their couch for the cold, rainy conditions at the Brentford Community Stadium as the Bees ran away winners in a goal fest.


A nine-goal thriller where defence certainly took a back seat but nevertheless a brilliant win in the end for the Bees – and a great boost for their goal difference.
