It was another defensive nightmare from Brentford as they claimed their first point of the season against Bristol City.
The Bees were tipped as outsiders for promotion this season but have got off to a tricky start to the Championship, with two defeats and a draw to their name.
The continuing issue for Dean Smith has been their defence, as shown once again last night.
They had 24 efforts at goal with 10 shots on target, but still could only claim a draw as defensive errors allowed Josh Brownhill and Bobby Reid to score.
Ollie Watkins netted the equaliser for the Royals after Brownhill’s opener, heading in from Jota’s cross just 10 minutes into the second half.
Another new signing, Neal Maupay, then struck a brilliant effort to put the Bees into the lead, looping the ball over Frank Fielding. This was all before Bobby Reid spanked the ball home to equalise in added time.
It has added to the frustration of Brentford fans, who had this to say on Twitter afterwards:
Bad night on the pitch. Not a particularly clever one off it either. #BrentfordFC

Surely Maupay and Watkins have to start on Saturday. #brentfordfc

Overall there were plenty more positives. Watkins is a superstar & keep an eye on Maupay's goal per minute ratio. Handful #BrentfordFC

#BrentfordFC board as culpable for tonight's result as City's keeper. They witnessed the same pre-season defending the rest of us did.

Should be on 9 points but we are on 1. Dominated our first 3 games but the defence has let us down again #BrentfordFC

Conceding a 98th minute equaliser to a team managed by a child isn't ideal. #BrentfordFC

Announce a defence coach. #BrentfordFC
