The most eagerly anticipated Championship clash of Tuesday night ended 1-1 at Griffin Park as Brentford and Leeds cancelled each other out under the lights.
Both goals were scored in the first half, with Brentford’s opener coming courtesy of their man of the moment Said Benrahma, who got his fourth goal in three league games for the Bees.
The Algerian capitalised on a goalkeeping blunder from Kiko Casilla to give the Bees the advantage in the 25th minute.
However, Leeds pegged the west London side back less than a quarter of an hour later through Liam Cooper’s effort from inside the box.
QUIZ: Do you know where these 15 ex-Brentford players are playing now?
The scores remained level until full-time, and the result means Brentford occupy 4th place in the League table with 54 points from their 32 games. Leeds remain in second.
The game saw new deadline day signings Tariqe Fosu and Shandon Baptiste make their debuts for the club, with both coming on as 89th minute substitutes.
Here is what Baptiste had to say after making his Brentford bow:
