Football: Brilliant Beresford Leaves the Bees on Their Knees; Brentford 0 Burnley 3


Byline: Marc ISAACS

BATTLING Burnley roared into the fifth round for the first time in 20 years after a wonder show from keeper Marlon Beresford.

Robbie Blake, Paul Cook and substitute Glen Little scored the vital goals which gave the Clarets a great chance of drawing one of the big boys in the last 16.

Burnley came into the game having won just one of their previous eight matches and for a while another upset looked on the cards.

Brentford had already seen off one First Division outfit - Derby - and were convinced they could take Burnley's scalp, too.

Despite scoring three goals, the visitors needed a lot of luck - and a great display from Beresford - to see off the buzzing Bees.

Brentford came close to opening the scoring after just four minutes. Andy Frampton centred and Jay Smith nodded just wide.

But the Bees suffered a cruel blow when midfielder Kevin O'Connor was carried off on 24 minutes following a nasty collision with Burnley defender Drissa Diallo.

Boss Wally Downes was forced to make an early change and replaced O'Connor with Matt Somner.

But despite the reshuffle, it was the Second Division side who created the best chance of the first half after 33 minutes.

Stephen Hunt's free-kick found Leo Roget, whose close-range header produced a superb save from Beresford as he leaped to touch it over.

Roget was to play no further part in the game as he was forced to leave the pitch with a suspected hamstring injury four minutes from the break.

And right on half-time, Burnley came close as Blake burst into the box and struck a low drive which was beaten out by keeper Paul Smith.

Hunt nearly gave Brentford a dream start to the second half when he broke clear, only to find the defiant Beresford in his way.

The Bees were made to pay for that missed opportunity when Burnley took the lead a minute later on 50 minutes.

Graham Branch's crossfield ball beat the home defence and freed Blake, who slid the ball past Smith into the corner of the net.
