Brentford players had a bizarre clash with Nottingham Forest ground staff before kick-off, but Tricky Trees got the last laugh with Mathias Jorgensen’s late own goal


The Nottingham Forest and Brentford game had a usual warm-up as the Bees players clashed with Forest’s gardeners before kick-off.

But the home side ended up having the final say in the matter, as the Tricky Trees scored an equalizer to snatch a point from the penalty spot.

Officials at the City Ground on Saturday were called into action before the match even started, as they spotted a discussion between Brentford players and Forest ground staff during the warm-up.

Footage posted to social media showed the two groups standing together in what appeared to be heated conversation, before the referee and his linesman approached them.

Officials were then seen trying to calm the Bees players and staff – who looked rather angry – as the Forest groundskeeper walked away to continue preparing the pitch for the game.

Members of each party are then seen speaking to officials, presumably giving a recap of events.

The Tricky Trees, however, were the ones who had the last laugh.


The home side led 1-0 in the 20th minute through summer signing Morgan Gibbs-White, but his effort was canceled before half-time by Brentford’s Bryan Mbeumo.

The Bees then took the lead in the second half, as Yoane Wissa took on Forest keeper Dean Henderson before flicking the ball over him to put the opposing team in front.

But Forest has not finished there.

With the Bees looking set to retake all three points in the south, their lead was snatched away in the sixth minutes of injury time.

Gibbs-White’s weak drive was cleared off the line by Ben Mee, but the former Burnley man’s clearance wasn’t enough as the rebound deflected bee man Mathias Jorgensen and into goal, bringing back Forest level at death.

What a drama-filled afternoon at the City Ground!
