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."

ang on there!! We've only just won the second in a row. Don't we have to win three, like Brazil, to get to keep the Cup permanently at our stadium? ;-)

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
