The Bees quality on the ball caused Vale problems early on and Adam Forshaw squandered an excellent opportunity before the visitors took a 27th-minute lead.

The goal was a cracker from right-back Shaleum Logan, who cut inside Daniel Jones and unleashed an unstoppable left-foot shot from 25 yards which flew into the top corner of Chris Neal's net.

But determined Vale were only behind for five minutes before they equalised through skipper Doug Loft.

Gavin Tomlin did well to get in a cross from the right flank and although, Loft's first effort was blocked by a defender, he smashed in the loose ball from six yards.

Clayton Donaldson almost restored Brentford's advantage early in the second half when his lob from Jake Bidwell's superb pass narrowly missed the target.

And the visitors failed to make the most of a dominant second-half display through a combination of poor finishing and Vale's dogged defending.

What Is It That FIFA Actually Do?

That's the question raised timidly by someone sat at the back of the room, whilst others remind that UEFA aren't perfect either. Plus a few more gone on to better XIs...

Time To Step Up, Mr Platini...

UEFA should step up and extend the Euros to replace FIFA's tarnished World Cup, say a couple of mailboxers. Also: all hail Carlo, King of the Kop, and plenty more Budget XIs...
