Trotta Heartbreak!

Trotta Heartbreak!

Over at Griffin Park, home of Brentford, one of our players out on loan had a chance to go down in Brentford folklore as a hero.

Unfortunately, there`s a fair chance that he`ll forever be known as a plonker!

Marcello Trotta had the chance to send Brentford into the Championship when, deep into stoppage time with the score at 0-0, Brentford won a spot kick against promotion rivals Doncaster Rovers.

After a discussion with his team-mates, but against the wishes of his manager, Uwe Roler, Trotta stepped up to take the kick.

Sadly, for Trotta his kick cannoned against the cross bar, bounced down and in the ensuing melee, was cleared up field.

But things were to get worse for Trotta when, from the cleared ball, Billy Paynter found James Coppinger who gleefully scored, with the last kick of the game, to give Doncaster Rovers the title and condemn Brentford to the play-offs.

What a plonker!
