The game was soured by the dismissal of Darren Powell for fighting with team-mate Karleigh Osborne.

Billy Clarke had given the Bees the lead four minutes before half-time in somewhat fortunate fashion when he diverted Sam Wood's shot past Shwan Jalal.

However the Bees were reduced to 10 men four minutes after the break when Powell was shown a straight red for a scuffle with Osborne, who received a booking.

Bournemouth tried to make the numerical advantage count and Anton Robinson shot over the bar from the edge of the box.

Danny Hollands also dragged a shot wide after finding space in the box as Brentford held on for a much-needed victory that kept Bournemouth in relegation trouble.

But Biting Doesn't Hurt Like Stamping...

There are Liverpool fans arguing that Luis Suarez is nowhere near Diego Costa's sh*t-house league but we have plenty of love for the agitator too. Oh and Spurs...

It's an afternoon Mailbox that offers the reaction to the reaction, with a defence for Diego Costa offered, and Balotelli mooted to move to QPR. Plus a silly idea about the Mails...
