Just when Brentford fans thought chances of reaching the playoffs were scuppered, the Bees only went and won at Bristol City to reignite the faintest hopes of a trip to Wembley in May. And with Mick McCarthy having handed in his resignation at Ipswich, Brentford will be looking at the match at the weekend as a must-win game to keep their playoff hopes alive.
The Beesotted crew met in The Distillers Pub in Hammersmith discussing the Sheffield United and Bristol City games over the Easter weekend. Rumours of West Brom angling for Dean Smith at the end of the season. And we look forward to the Ipswich game – chatting to Ben from Blue Monday Podcast (@BlueMondayITFC).
