Stat keen Andy Scott has admitted he had his eye on history after his Brentford team hit the magic League One 60 point mark this week.

A 2-1 win over Tranmere Rovers leaves the Bees in a strong position to clinch a top ten finish in the first season since claiming the League Two title.

It took them past the 59 points Brentford - featuring Scott as a player - collected the last time they won promotion from the Football League basement.

It was a point not lost on the Griffin Park chief and he believes it can means his side can only get better.

“We’ve surpassed the points total we got the last time we were promoted as champions, when I was playing,” he said.

“We’ve got a better home record, a better away record and a better defensive record and with three games to go that is a terrific achievement, considering the side we had at that time.

“You look at the players we have now and it shows what potential they have got.”

Brentford host Yeovil Town on Saturday before making the trip to play-off chasing Swindon Town next weekend, ahead of the final day clash with Hartlepool United on May 8.

Scott is looking for his team to extend their ten match unbeaten run to the end of the campaign, but - given Brentford’s recent form over the busy schedule - is a little disappointed there are no midweek games remaining.

“We want to go to the end of the season unbeaten now. It is very important we maintain our standards and take them into next season,” he added.

“The way it has been going I wish we had another Tuesday match.

“I don’t like to say ‘I told you so’, but I did say at the start of the busy run I thought we would get better for it.

“When you think back to ten games ago we were right in the relegation mix and under a little bit of pressure to get results.”

We’ve got Bristol Rovers in our sights now. We’ve overtaken MK Dons and we want to stay above them.

“There are some good players in the squad and they are playing with confidence and we have become a lot harder to beat as the season has progressed.”

Brentford’s last three games: Apr 24 Yeovil Town (h), May 1 Swindon Town (a), 8 Hartlepool United (h).
