  • GOAL!!! BRENTFORD TAKE THE LEAD!!! A corner from the left is headed away but Brentford keep it alive through Canos, who drives down the right and puts in a low cross that Jansson flicks on to Toney. The striker finds himself unmarked in the centre of the box and fires an unstoppable effort into the top-right corner! It's 1-0 to Brentford!

  • GOAL!!! BUENDIA FIRES VILLA LEVEL!!! Ings cuts in from the left and slides the ball into the feet of Buendia on the edge of the box. The Argentine controls the ball and opens himself up before lashing a ferocious strike into the top-right corner past Raya, who had no chance! It's 1-1 now!

  • Ings' frustration boils over as he is shown a yellow card for clipping the heels of Ajer as the pair raced into the Brentford box to meet the ball. The referee's mind is made up, however.

  • The bookings continue to rack up as Janelt now slides in very late on Young. It is a poor challenge and deserving of a yellow card.
