Glenn Poole kept his cool to maintain Brentford's promotion push with a 1-1 draw against Aldershot.

Glenn Poole kept his cool to maintain Brentford's promotion push with a 1-1 draw against Aldershot in a tale of two penalties.

Scott Davies had give the Shots the lead from the spot in the 24th minute after keeper Ben Hamer had brought down Ricky Newman, but Poole sealed a share of the points for the Bees after Dean Howell had handled in the area.

The Shots - maintaining an unbeaten home record that stretches back to January - burst out of the blocks and Louie Soares fired a shot which whistled just past the post.

Gary Waddock's men did not have to wait too long to take the lead, though, as Davies' long ball over the top prompted Hamer to race out of his goal and clatter ex-Brentford man Ricky Newman, with Davies blasting home the resulting spot kick.

But Poole capitalised on Howell's mistake to send Nikki Bull the wrong way from the spot and steal a point for Andy Scott's side.
