Brentford beat Tranmere in dramatic fashion thanks to Adam Forshaw's injury-time penalty.

Forshaw netted in the 93rd minute following Adam Dugdale's handball, moments after Cole Stockton had pulled the hosts level for the second time.

Chris Atkinson and Dugdale had responded to goals from Martin Taylor and Clayton Donaldson, before the latter netted to put the Bees 3-2 up.

Stockton thought he had rescued a point but Rovers were denied by Forshaw.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Brentford manager Uwe Rosler told BBC London 94.9:

"Looking at the positives, we got three points and our first win away from home. I think that we were excellent at the beginning of the game, we were 2-0 up and it could have been more.

"The most important thing is that we bounced back after last week.

"The game was very much backwards and forwards, and in the end it was like a handball game."
