Raya shows he is the Bees’ knees
DAVID RAYA was Brentford’s hero as they knocked out West Brom in a shoot- out to earn a meeting with Fulham or Sheffield Wednesday next week.
The goalkeeper saved from Grady Diangana as the Bees won 5- 4 on penalties after drawing
2- 2 at The Hawthorns.
Baggies skipper Hal Robson- Kanu struck twice from the spot in the second half, either side of a brilliant overhead kick from Emiliano Marcondes.
Marcus Forss – a former Baggies trainee – then scored his own penalty to force the shoot- out.
Brentford started on top but, after a forgettable spell, trailed in the 56th minute. Robson- Kanu stole in
BRENTFORD WIN 5- 4 ON PENS after they dithered and a desperate Dominic Thompson challenge upended him.
Albion’s skipper rolled the ball home but the Bees hit back two minutes later, Marcondes producing his heroics.
Brentford trailed again when Charlie Goode barged over Kyle Edwards and Robson- Kanu netted from the spot for a second time.
But they were level once more after Cedric Kipre was adjudged to have brought down Forss in the box with 17 minutes to go.
It was a soft decision by referee Darren England but Forss stayed cool to blast the ball into the net and set up the shoot- out.
