‘Answer your critics’ – Hordes of Bournemouth fans target one man after Brentford defeat

Brentford beat Bournemouth 3-1 to advance into the Championship play-off final today.

Brentford hosted Bournemouth in the second of their two play-off semi-final legs today. The Cherries took a 1-0 lead to west London and grabbed an early lead today through Arnaut Danjuma.

Ivan Toney would level things form the spot soon after. Chris Mepham was sent off for the visitors in the first-half and soon after the restart, Vitaly Janelt fired Brentford into a 2-1 lead.

The Bees still needed a third to take the aggregator lead and with less than 10 minutes to play, second half substitute Marcus Forss scored that all-important goal.

For plenty of Bournemouth fans, Mepham’s sending off was today’s turning point. The 23-year-old has often come under the spotlight this season and today’s performance was another for the Welshman to forget.

Brentford will now play in their second play-off final in as many seasons, against either Barnsley or Swansea City.
