Brentford scored two goals in the last five minutes to draw with Walsall.

The Saddlers looked in control when they netted twice in a minute, Jamie Paterson scoring with a first-time effort and George Bowerman winning the ball, cutting inside and driving home.

But Jonathan Douglas gave the Bees hope by firing into the roof of the net when Walsall keeper David Grof punched the ball straight at him.

And Clayton Donaldson headed home Farid El Alagui's knock-on for a point.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM:

Brentford manager Uwe Rosler tells BBC London 94.9:

"Credit to my players for the way they fought back in the second half.

"But again, we made an absolute error; we're not stopping making these errors.

"They were determined in the second half, they showed great mental health.

"I think we deserved the point, overall I am not happy with the point, there is a lot of room for improvement."
