Last Meeting

18 March 2017, Sky Bet Championship, Burton Albion 3 Brentford 5

Sergi Canós and Lasse Vibe both scored twice as Brentford came from 3-1 down to record a thumping win over Burton Albion.

The Bees may have been down and out as they trailed by two at the break after a first half that the hosts had the better of.

But two goals before the hour mark levelled it up and Brentford never looked back. Vibe got his second of the game and then crossed for Jota to make it 5-3 and seal a win that looked unlikely midway through the match.
