Brentford deny Bournemouth in Championship

·1-min read

Brentford have come from behind to move into the Championship automatic promotion places with an entertaining 2-1 win over in-form Bournemouth.

Dominic Solanke gave the Cherries the lead midway through the first half when he flicked Lloyd Kelly's low driven cross into the roof of the net.

But the Bees hit back before the break as Henrik Dalsgaard rose highest at the near post to power home an unstoppable header from Mathias Jensen's corner.

And they grabbed a winner 11 minutes from time when substitute Tariqe Fosu headed home Bryan Mbeumo's teasing cross at the far post.

That was enough to move Thomas Frank's side above Bournemouth and into second spot - one of the two automatic promotion spots - behind Norwich City.

In Wednesday's other match, Swansea and Reading drew 0-0 at the Liberty Stadium.

The Welsh club is in third position while Reading fill the last of the playoff spots in sixth.
