Notts County 0-1 Brentford

Brentford striker Will Grigg

Striker Will Grigg was on target as high-flying Brentford overcame plucky Notts County in League One.

Bees keeper David Button made a triple save inside four minutes, denying Jack Grealish, Danny Haynes and Jamal Campbell-Ryce.

Gary Liddle also had an effort cleared off the line by Clayton Donaldson.

Campbell-Ryce then blasted a golden chance over the bar before Grigg converted the Bees' first shot on goal before the break for the winner.

It left new Notts boss Shaun Derry still looking for his first win since taking over at Meadow Lane.
