MacDonald's side suffered a late setback at The County Ground after Kevin O'Connor thundered in a last-gasp spot-kick to wipe out the Robins' one-goal lead, handed to them by Tottenham loanee Massimo Luogno's fine effort.

The former Aston Villa caretaker coach believes it could come down to which team recovers fastest before the clash at Griffin Park on Monday afternoon, a ground which has been something of a fortress for the Bees this season.

"We think we are evenly matched so it will be about who recovers quickly and gets that little bit of luck," he said.

"Whether that is a decision or a bit of magic to win the game.

"The players have to get physically and mentally ready. We hope they'll all be fit and rested up.

"We are still both in the tie and it comes down to this one off game. It is still very exciting and there is a lot to play there.

"There is no clear favourite, even though they have the best home record in the league. But we feel we can play as well away from home as we do at home. We always think we have a good chance anywhere we play."

Barcelona transfer ban upheld

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
