Football - Moore: Bees can sting Chelsea

Brentford goalkeeper Simon Moore is confident his side can cause more cup misery for Chelsea on Sunday.

The Blues crashed out in the Capital One Cup semi-final against Swansea on Wednesday night, and next up face a short but potentially tricky trip to Griffin Park in the FA Cup fourth round.

Highly-rated Moore, 21, limbered up for the big game by saving a penalty in the Bees' 2-2 draw with Leyton Orient earlier this week.

And while expecting a busy afternoon against the likes of Frank Lampard, Demba Ba and Fernando Torres, Moore feels the League One side are capable of pulling off a shock.

"I think I will probably have a lot to do," he said.

"But it will be difficult for them to come here on a tricky pitch, the atmosphere in a tight stadium will be electric and we are confident we can get through."
