Bees beat Swans in ace race

Last updated : 31 August 2005 By Mo Sultan
The 6ft tall midfielder was loaned to Brentford last season and scored his first senior goal with a strike at Blackpool.

The 20-year-old has opted to join the Bees again on loan, this time until January.

Pratley was expected to join Swansea, where he could have played in front of bigger crowds in a brand new arena, but Brentford ultimately won the ace race.
