Brentford picked up their first home league win of the campaign on Saturday thanks to a single Romaine Sawyers goal and some Daniel Bentley heroics. Romaine slammed home the only goal of the game just after the break before Dan took centre stage late on, making a number of fine saves, not least to deny Lee Gregory from the penalty spot.

Dan took to twitter to thank the fans for their support.
Buzzing with the win and clean sheet yesterday, great shift and team performance to see the game out. Some atmosphere at GP! 👏🏼🔴⚽️— Dan Bentley (@dan_bentley1) October 15, 2017
Also thank you for all the messages! Much appreciated! 🙌🏼❤️— Dan Bentley (@dan_bentley1) October 15, 2017
There was more reason to be cheerful with Lasse Vibe returning to the squad after nearly two months out.
With the dust settling, the boys began to look forward to next weekend's home clash against Sunderland and the chance to get another three points.
However, the praise for Dan, and the team's, performance kept coming in.
