Beesotted’s twitter feed was buzzing last night as an evening of League One results finally went in our favour with Doncaster, Sheffield Utd and Swindon all losing 2-0.

A glance at the table and fixture list combined shows that automatic promotion – and indeed the title – is again within our own grasp. It might require five wins out of five of course but Uwe Rosler and his squad can surely have no better motivation to go for the jugular.

Brentford travel to JPT winners Crewe tonight with Rosler prescribing an attacking outlook following Saturday’s draw at the Ricoh – “We will go there and go for three points. We have to. It’s a massive game for us”.

Brentford fans will be hoping that the hosts still have a JPT hangover and have been boosted by the news that striker Farid El Alagui has travelled with the team after scoring for the Development Squad on Monday.

There are sure to be a number more twists and turns this season – last night’s results proved that our rivals are more than capable of dropping points – but we are back in the driving seat again. Now we just need to hit the accelerator once more. Come on You Reds.

———-State of play in League One———-

Doncaster lead the table with 78 points from 43 games with a goal difference of +17. They still have to play Crewe (a), Notts County (h) and Brenford (a)

Sheffield United will also still fancy their chances if they can put a run of form together. They have 70 points from 41 games and a goal difference of +16 with games remaining against Swindon (h) Brentford (h) Portsmouth (a), Crewe (a) and Preston (h)

Swindon in sixth place have the lowest points but the best goal difference with 68 pts from 42 games and a goal difference of +31. They play Sheffield United (h) on Saturday and then face Crewe (h), Stevenage (h) and Scunthorpe (a)

It’s going to be a nail-biting few games. Keep your eyes on the @beesotted twitter feed for our take on the promotion race and live tweets from Brentford’s remaining games.
