Brentwood produced another Jekyll and Hyde performance at Mill Field on Saturday, producing a good first half performance that earned them a half time lead before seeing that advantage wiped out within six minutes of the start of the second half.
Brentwood gave a debut to goalkeeper Ronnie Yates and there was a first start in midfield for another recent signing Jack Adlington.
Brentwood certainly started well and Adlington created a good chance for Andy Freeman just 18 seconds after the kick-off, Freeman shot being comfortably saved by home keeper Lamar Joseph-Johnson. But the visitors did take the lead in the 7th minute when Freeman this time coolly converted from a similar position.
Brentwood had a chance to confirm their early supremacy when Lamar Reynolds was brought down by Joseph-Johnson as he was going around the keeper. But Reynolds hit his penalty kick high over the bar.
For Aveley, Emmanuel Ighorae was often a threat from the left wing and Yates had to be a quick off his line to block Daniel McCullock and keep Brentwood ahead.
Blues kept creating chances before half time with time with Marcus Milner having a header saved by Joseph-Johnson and Yan Sumaili hitting over the crossbar from the resulting corner.
The Millers made two half-time substitutions with Jack Edwards and Michael PIndy coming on and Aveley quickly turned the game in their favour. Brentwood failed to clear a 49th minute and Arian Retkoceri stabbed the ball in from close range.
Barely two minutes later a ball over the top caught the visiting defence and McCullock put Aveley ahead for the first time.
It was 3-1 in the 62nd minute when Pindy produced a fine finish into the top corner to at the end of an excellent build-up from the Millers.
Reynolds pace and skill sometimes gave Brentwood hope of getting back in the game but it was not to be and Brentwood have now gone eight games without a win.
