Football: Brilliant Beresford Leaves Busy Bees Downes and out; Brentford 0 Burnley 3


Byline: Marc ISAACS

BRENTFORD boss Wally Downes insists he's to blame for helping Burnley win a place in the fifth round for the first time in 20 years.

Downes called himself an 'idiot' after making a late substitution which he believed changed the course of the game and let Burnley snatch two late goals to kill the game off.

But a wonder show from Clarets keeper Marlon Beresford left the Bees down and out.

They dominated the majority of play and looked as if they would grab an equaliser after Robbie Blake had fired the First Division side into the lead.

But Downes believed his side would benefit from a late change when he replaced Matt Somner with Mark Peters.

However, the substitution worked against him as Burnley went on to claim two late goals through Paul Cook and Glen Little to flatter Stan Ternent's side.

And Downes believes he has only got himself to blame for seeing his side's FA Cup adventure end at Griffin Park.

Downes said: "It was so stupid of me to make the change when I did. We couldn't have put them under more pressure if we tried.

"I am an idiot for doing it."

Boss Stan Ternent is now praying his side can draw one of the big boys in the next round and make it another full house at Turf Moor following their adventures in the Worthington Cup earlier in the season when they played both Tottenham and Manchester United.

Ternent said: "This was a very tough game for us. Brentford were excellent, but you need a bit of luck to stay in the competition.

"I told Wally after the game that his players were a credit to him."

It could have been such a different story if Brentford had taken just one of their many chances in the second half or didn't face Beresford in the form of his life in Burnley's goal.

Bees created the best chance of the first half on 33 minutes. Stephen Hunt's free-kick fell straight to Leo Roget whose close-range header produced a superb tip-over from Beresford.

The home side were made to pay for the miss, going behind on 50 minutes. …
