Brentford and Leeds share the points in key Championship clash after goalkeeping errors at Griffin Park – Evening Standard, Standard.co.uk
A goalkeeping clanger at either end ensured it was honors even in Tuesday night’s key Championship promotion clash between Brentford and Leeds United at Griffin Park.
In-form winger Said Benrahma had given the Bees the lead with his fourth goal in three games, but Liam Cooper struck back for Leeds to earn a 1-1 draw as neither side was able to take full advantage of Nottingham Forest’s surprise home defeat to Charlton.
Despite returning to full training this week, Pontus Jansson was not fit enough to play any part against his former side, so Thomas Frank named an unchanged Brentford side, with Julian Jeanvier partnering Ethan Pinnock at center-back.
Marcelo Bielsa made just one change to his Leeds line-up despite their recent run of poor form, with Kalvin Phillips returning from suspension in place of Gjanni Alioski.
