TWO days af­ter events in Los An­ge­les, Brent­ford echoed the drama of Tyson Fury, ris­ing from the can­vas at the last to claim a dis­puted draw at the Hawthorns. Brent­ford equalised in the first minute of stop­page time when Lewis MacLeod headed home from Emil­iano’s wicked cross. Be­fore that, West Bromwich had dom­i­nated the game, tak­ing the lead in the 77th minute when Har­vey Barnes scored de­spite a hint of a push by Dwight Gayle. West Brom ought to have landed the knock-out blows be­fore then, with Jay Ro­driguez and Hal Rob­son-Kanu the most waste­ful cul­prits. The late ac­tion meant West Brom only closed the gap to lead­ers Nor­wich to five points, and Brent­ford man­ager Thomas Frankel had a pos­i­tive re­sult af­ter six losses from seven games since re­plac­ing Dean Smith. West Brom boss Dar­ren Moore said: ‘I am pleased with the per­for­mance, it was a dom­i­nant dis­play by us.’ Frankel said: ‘In the first half we were hang­ing in there. But we came back.’
