Brentford managed to stop their run of three successive defeats after Lewis MacLeod headed home a late equaliser to steal a point from the Hawthorns.
Thomas Frank’s men had their backs against the wall on Monday evening, facing 26 shots from West Brom in what was an incessant attacking display from Darren Moore’s men.
Despite the number of shots that were taken against them, the Bees managed to withstand the Baggies’ pressure until the 77th minute when Harvey Barnes finally broke the deadlock and scored a goal that had been coming since the start.
From then it looked as if Frank’s team would be heading to a fourth successive defeat and a seventh in ten matches.
But cometh the hour, cometh the man, and in added time at the end of the second half, MacLeod rose to head home an unlikely leveller to snatch a point right at the death.
The heroics from the London club could be the spark to finally re-ignite their season after what has been a dismal run in the last couple of months.
After the latest of equalisers, we asked our team of FLW writers if they felt the last-gasp draw could be the catalyst to saving their season faltering season?
It might have to be.
They’re struggling, but they’ve got enough quality in their squad to be top ten.
The recent hits they’ve taken, Smith leaving and Hawkins injury, have hurt them.
They’re too good for a relegation battle though.
I still think they’ll struggle.
Since Dean Smith’s departure, they have been on a downward spiral which shows little signs of ending anytime soon.
The Bees will have to invest if they are to fire themselves back up the table, which is hard to see, especially with the likes of Chris Mepham and Neal Maupay likely to attract interest in January.
I think Brentford will be fine this season, but they are unfortunately nothing other than a mid-table team since Dean Smith’s departure.
The Bees have some fantastic players in their squad, the likes of Neal Maupay and Ollie Watkins to name just a couple, and they have the team to steer well clear of relegation.
I think that they have lost their mojo since Smith left, and they won’t be promotion contenders by any means.
