Result: Brentford pile misery on Blackpool

Brentford pile more misery on pointless Blackpool with a 2-1 victory against the Tangerines at Bloomfield Road.

Blackpool remain without a point in the Championship this season following a 2-1 defeat against Brentford at Bloomfield Road.

The home side took the lead with 17 minutes played when Nathan Delfouneso headed the ball past David Brutton and into the bottom corner.

John Lundstram tried his luck from range shortly after in an attempt to double his side's advantage, but his effort was gathered by Brutton in the Brentford goal.

The Bees went in search of a leveller before the interval, and they would have found one on the 35-minute mark if not for Tony McMahon's vital header at the back post to clear a dangerous move.

However, just two minutes later Alex Pritchard did find the net after unleashing from the edge of the box to square the game up.

Brentford edged ahead for the first time on the night eight minutes after the restart courtesy of Stuart Dallas, who sent a bending shot beyond Joe Lewis.

Substitute Jota struck an inviting ball across the six-yard box as Mark Warburton's charges increased their foothold on the game, but his cross could not be tapped home by a teammate.

Chances were few and far between as the game wore on, with Delfouneso seeing his long-range strike sail over the bar as Brentford held out for all three points.
