Brentford 0 - AFC Bournemouth 0

Griffin Park

Happy with Brentford point

Two of League One's in form sides met on New Years Day, the Cherries unbeaten in 13, whilst Brentford were unbeaten in 11.

A scoreless draw at Griffin Park extended both sides respected unbeaten records, whilst it was the first time AFC Bournemouth had failed to hit the back of the net since the 1-0 defeat to Coventry at the beginning of October.

Josh McQuoid had the Cherries best chance of the game while Wes Fogden, Harry Arter and Matt Tubbs also had opportunities to open the scoring.

On a defensive note it was the Cherries fourth consecutive game without conceding a goal, a run of form which has seen AFC Bournemouth hit seven goals without reply on route to taking ten points from a possible twelve.

Pitman told afcb.co.uk...

"It wasn`t an easy game to play in, The pitch was awful and the way they play isn`t conducive to playing nice football.

'We adapted our game and before the match we would have probably taken a point, but if there was one winner, I think it would have been us.

"We had a good period in the second half where we looked like we would make the break through, but didn`t quite get the end product. We are happy with the performance though and we will move on."
