Brentford boss Andy Scott is hoping his side`s league form does not falter after taking a step closer to Wembley by moving into the Southern Section final of the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy after a dramatic penalty shootout win over Charlton.
Following a goalless 90 minutes, goalkeeper Richard Lee was the hero once again as the Bees earned a final clash with Exeter, saving three spot-kicks in succession with Bees striker Gary Alexander scoring the winning penalty.
Scott said: "I'm absolutely delighted but we won't be taking anything for granted because Exeter will be as eager to get to Wembley as us. Equally we don't want this to become a distraction from the league where we are doing very well and are the form side in the division.
"I sensed in the second half we were creating more and we were unlucky not to win it in the 90 minutes. When it gets to penalties we've had enough practice this season so I was quite calm on the side.
"I'm most pleased we once again kept a clean sheet, our third in a row, and created chances. We won't let the temptation of a Wembley final distract us from the real aim this season which has to be promotion."
Lee added: "I'd practised a penalty shootout situation earlier in the day with our coach. He told me to stay big and get something on it. When I'm in that position I just get the feeling that I know what is going to happen and that gives me the edge I need."
