The Dons were 5-1 down at Griffin Park, with only Jim Fenlon's goal to show for their efforts, until late strikes from George Francomb and Peter Sweeney gave Brentford a lare scare before Ardley's men went out 5-3

"We came here to give Brentford a game and I felt we did that. It was an open game because we wanted to have a go at Brentford," he said.

"We had the chances to turn them over and not many sides will be able to say that here this season. Had we been a little more clinical it might have been a different story."

He praised his side's never-say-die spirit that saw them claw their way back from 5-1 to 5-3 in the dying minutes.

He added: "That impressed me because when you're 5-1 down it's all about character and we showed plenty."

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
