Sergi Canós was full of praise for the Griffin Park faithful following Brentford’s 2-1 victory over Queens Park Rangers. Dean Smith’s side had to show plenty of character with Sergi’s 16th-minute strike cancelled out by Idrissa Sylla in an action-packed half that also saw Ollie Watkins miss a penalty. But Florian Jozefzoon’s composed effort midway through the second half handed the hosts the local bragging rights and a crucial three points.
“It’s a great feeling,” the Spaniard told iFollow Brentford. “You can see from my celebration how important today was for the team and for myself. I’ve been waiting for a moment to score and show everybody what I’m capable of.
“We were a bit down until half-time but showed great character to get back into the game. The gaffer gave us some choices and instructions at the break and we executed them – we’re very happy.”
Brentford travel to Oakwell next weekend with a chance to break into the top six. Sergi said the fans will be crucial as Brentford push for the Play-Offs.
“The most important thing is the three points we won today to take us one point off the Play-Offs. The Barnsley game will be tough because they’re struggling and need the win, so hopefully we show the same character as we did today. The fans were amazing as they always are. We need to stick together as one until the end of the season. We need the fans to come to Barnsley and get behind the team – we need them.”
