Scott praises battling Bees

10 Nov 2008 - 11:56:46

Brentford boss Andy Scott was delighted to progress to the second round of the FA Cup after successful negotiating a tricky tie at Havant & Waterlooville.

The Bees won 3-1 against a side that reached the fourth round of the competition last season before eventually losing to Liverpool.

"It was really, really windy and swirling," Scott said after the victory. "It didn't really change our game-plan but it just made it a little bit more effective.

"We knew it would be a scrappy game and we came here with the idea in our heads that we were a non-league team and we'd be playing exactly the same as they'd be and that the conditions would dictate that.

"We wanted to play in their half and it wasn't pretty but it didn't have to be and we got the job done.

"We did a professional job. I'd have liked it to be more comfortable and Ben Hamer made a fantastic save at 2-1 but we shouldn't have let them back in the game in the first place."
