Ollie Watkins wins Fanscore award from Derby draw

Late hero earns nearly 60 per cent of votes on Official Club App

27 September 2017

Ollie Watkins made it back-to-back Man of the Match wins, in association with Fullers, on our Official Club App after his second goal in four days rescued a point for Dean Smith's side against Derby County last night.

The Bees bossed the game against Gary Rowett's Rams despite trailing from the 16th minute. Wave after wave of attacks was repelled until, with time running out, Ollie managed to turn Florian Jozefzoon's low cross past Scott Carson from close range to snatch a thoroughly deserved point. For his efforts, Ollie received more than 58 per cent of the Fanscore Man of the Match votes, beating Rico Henry into second with Daniel Bentley and Yoann Barbet tied in third. 

With the majority of supporters going for a Brentford win at half-time and full-time it was a low scoring matchday on Fanscore. However, league leader Mark Allerton was one of those to get both the Starting XI and Full-Time score right to open up a 218 point lead at the top of the season-long table ahead of Henry Ivey in second and Jack Anderson in third. 

With just the game against Middlesbrough remaining, Ross Bone holds an equally comfortable lead at the head of the September table from Peter Scott in second and Dave Inman in third. 

FanScore allows fans to play against friends and family in mini-leagues on our Smartphone app with points awarded for predicting the half-time and full-time match scores, plus the first goal scorer and time, and the Man of the Match. The app, which was launched last season, means you can stay in touch with Brentford wherever you are with with the latest news, scores, tables, interviews, highlights, and much more all in one place.
