Football Scores: Brentford 2-1 Aston Villa

Mads Roerslev scored a late winner as Brentford produced one of the upset football scores of the weekend in the Premier League. It was the visitors that opened the scoring in the 16th minute through Danny Ings before Yoane Wissa continued his superb run of form scoring just before half-time. Although Villa was the better side on the day, Roerslev turned in his own rebound to score his first goal in the Premier League in the 83rd minute.

Managers Reaction

Brentford manager Thomas Frank: “We played a very bad first half in many ways. Aston Villa was maybe a little bit on top, but I think it was a bad football match in the first half. It shows a lot about the mentality of the group. I said before the game about our mentality and how we manage to get three points from the game because I knew it would be an even game.”

Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard: “It was a really good first half. They had one chance in the first half and they scored, with two chances in the second half. We’ve gifted them three chances and conceded two goals from them. That’s a big disappointment and inevitably we went on to lose the game.”
