Sergi Canós: “When the fans get behind us we’re unstoppable”

Winger on Fulham victory

4 December 2017

Sergi Canós hailed The Bees faithful following Saturday’s 3-1 victory over West London rivals Fulham. The Spaniard, who opened his account for the season following Neeskens Kebano’s opener, said that it was the support from the stands that got Dean Smith’s men over the line:

“When the fans get behind us we’re unstoppable – with everyone pulling in the same direction we’re an amazing team. Every time I ask the fans for something they come through for us – they were brilliant today.

“To be back in the starting XI and to score means everything. I’m over the moon. Everyone needs to be in the same boat and I tried to show that with my gestures and my celebration.”

Having headed in for the interval on level terms, Brentford came flying out of the blocks during the second period; Romaine Sawyers firing the hosts in front within five minutes of the restart. The former Norwich City man praised the impact of the Head Coach during the break:

“The gaffer always wants us to press and to be alive in the game,” Sergi told iFollow Brentford. “We took the message from the gaffer to the pitch and it worked. As the boss said after the full-time whistle, I don’t think that the 20 or so teams we’ve played so far this season will look forward to facing us again.”

The Bees winger provided some positive news on the injury front having been withdrawn with 17 minutes to play:

“It was just cramping. I’ve had two injuries and I’ve been a bit unlucky this season, but now I’m trying to get back. I hope everyone can understand that I’m working hard to push towards a full 90 minutes. Hopefully I’ll manage that within the next two or three games.”

Having taken four points from back-to-back West London derbies, Sergi said that the team are itching to head to Humberside next weekend:

“We’re looking forward to it. We have a full week to prepare for the game (against Hull City); we can’t wait for the games to come.”
