The Bees snatched a point when substitute Bradley Wright-Phillips pounced in the final minute after goals from United's Barry Robson and Dave Kitson cancelled-out Marcello Trotta's opening spot-kick.

By that stage, red cards for Tony Craig and Clayton Donaldson left Brentford with nine men and United's Harry Maguire was also sent for an early bath.

Craig and Maguire's dismissals were immediately followed by missed penalties from Tony McMahon and Sam Saunders.

"I learned a lot about my players out there," Morgan said. "I learned they have heart and desire.

"I learned they have the character and fight to come back from difficult situations.

"I firmly believe that we will go into the final match of the season still with a chance of automatic promotion.

"People might think I'm wrong but I'm of that opinion without a shadow of a doubt."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
