First-half goals from Gary Alexander and Toumani Diagouraga gave the Bees breathing space, but Scott Wagstaff ensured a nail-biting finale for the Bees with a stinging volley 16 minutes from time.

Brentford dominated the first half and it was no surprise when Alexander latched on to a loose ball in a box to rifle home into the roof of the net.

Thierry Racon flashed a rare Addicks effort past the upright before Diagouraga made it two-nil to Brentford just after half an hour following a flowing move with a curling drive from the edge of the box.

Veteran striker Nicky Forster tested Charlton goalkeeper Rob Elliot with a low drive just before the break before the game swung in favour of the visitors after the interval.

Pawel Abbott missed two gilt-edged chances to haul his side back into it before Kyel Reid slipped past Michael Spillane to cross for Wagstaff to smash a volley inside the near post. Addicks substitute Akpo Sodje forced a late double save from Bees' goalkeeper Ben Hamer, but the home side held on.

It's A Massive, Big, Brilliant Mailbox

And we left lots of Suarez/Costa mails unopened. What we do have is a video of some rotten Suarez tackles and views on the future of football, Spurs, Liverpool and...

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...
