Brentford came away from The McAlpine with all to play for in the second leg at Griffin Park after a 0-0 draw in Yorkshire.

The Bees went into this play off semi final with an unchanged first eleven. Stephen Hunt nearly opened the scoring after 90 seconds when his shot flashed past the far post.

Brentford made all the early running, forcing three corners within the five minutes. One of which resulted from a thirty yard shot from Bees captain Paul Evans that flew out of Martyn Margetson's hands, and much to the Terriers stopper relief, went wide of the goal. With nine minutes gone, Ivar Ingimarsson's header went just wide with a header from the edge of the five yard box.

After The Bees dominant spell, Huddersfield creeped back into the match. The front pairing of Andy Booth and Delroy Facey causing Darren Powell food for thought. Booth thought he had given Huddersfield the lead but his effort on 33 minutes was ruled out for handball.

In the second half, Brentford survived an early scare in the 54th minute when Andy booth had his second goal disallowed, this time for offside. Steven Sidwell became the first man in Mr Laws book in the 63 minute for a foul.

Brentford's best move of the match came with eight minutes remaining. Great interplay with Dobson, Owusu and Evans saw Sidwell stride through the middle nad his shot was cannoned away at the last minute. just sixty seconds later, Andy Booth should have put terriers ahead but shot wide.
