Stoppage Time Goals See Brentford Deny United Victory

GTBCO FOOD DRINL

March 31, (THEWILL) – Deep into stoppage time, Brentford and Manchester United traded late goals to settle for a pulsating 1-1 draw at the Gtech Community Stadium late on Saturday. The result extends the Bees’ impressive unbeaten run to seven matches despite their dominance and squandering numerous chances against a beleaguered Red Devils side.

Trailing United in the league, the importance of a home victory was evident as Brentford seized the initiative, creating a slew of openings. However, United’s rearguard action weathered the storm until the final moments when substitute Mason Mount appeared to have stolen all three points with a late strike.

Brentford refused to accept defeat, launching one final assault. Their perseverance paid dividends in the ninth minute of stoppage time as Kristoffer Ajer converted from Ivan Toney’s clever pass to send the home faithful into delirium and earn a hard-earned point.

The relentless encounter saw Brentford rack up over 30 shots, hitting the woodwork on three occasions while United keeper André Onana made key saves to keep the visitors alive. Erik ten Hag’s side continue to stumble in their top-four pursuit as Brentford inch five points clear of the relegation zone.
