Brentford’s December form earned special recognition for Lasse Vibe and Ollie Watkins. Brentford won four and drew one of their six games in the final month of 2016, part of an ongoing run of three losses in 19 Sky Bet Championship fixtures. And Lasse and Ollie, two of the key contributors to that run, have been named in the WhoScored.com Team of the Month.
The football statistics website rates each player for each match and the performances of Lasse and Ollie have earned them a place in the monthly team. Lasse scored four goals in the month, all of them coming in the final three games. Ollie, meanwhile, had one goal and two assists during December as he reached eight in all competitions for the campaign.
It is the second time Ollie has been given the accolade. His performances in September – three goals and an assist – earned him a place in that Team of the Month. A full range of Championship statistics can be seen at whoscored.com.
