Lewis Macleod said that his first strike for Brentford was “a long time coming” having marked his first league start since October 2016 with a goal. Brentford fell behind midway through the first half to Adama Traoré's well-struck effort, but the Scotsman was at hand to earn The Bees a share of the spoils during an evenly-contested encounter at Griffin Park.

"We’re disappointed that we didn’t win the game," Lewis told iFollow Brentford following the full-time whistle. “We dominated most of the ball and if we’d taken a few of our chances we could have won it comfortably.”

The sponsors' Man of the Match admitted he was delighted to get off the mark in red and white:

“On a personal note it was good. I was relatively surprised I was playing so I was excited going into the game. To score is a great feeling. I hit it straight into the corner – I was unlucky with the first strike, picked up the second ball and tried to put it in the bottom corner. It was a nice finish. It’s been a long time coming! My aim is to get on the pitch and play and I felt as though I did myself justice today.”
