Brentford midfielder, Romaine Sawyers, revealed his delight at scoring his first Brentford goal against QPR earlier in the season, and is hoping for more of the same tomorrow.

The St Kitts and Nevis international recorded the second goal in October’s 2-0 win at Loftus Road.

Speaking to FLW reporter Adam Simeoni at yesterday’s press conference, Sawyers said: ‘It was a good night for everyone associated with the club.’ the player reminisced. ‘Being my first goal for the club made it all the more special.’

‘I don’t put pressure on myself to score goals but it was good to get off the mark.’

Sawyers did however admit that 3 goals in 42 appearances this season was not good enough, and next season fans would see a lot more from him going forward.

‘This season has had its ups and downs, but I think it’s time now to kick on and prove to myself that I’m equipped for this level.’ he said.

‘I’ll never feel like I’ve proved myself at this level until I move on from it, whether that be through promotion or something else. It’s a case of, I can always do better.’

The summer signing from Walsall said that he was enjoying life at Brentford under manager Dean Smith, who brought the player to the club.

‘He brings the best out of me. We have a really good relationship both on and off the pitch, and it makes it a lot easier having someone that knows and trusts you.’

The West Brom academy product also revealed himself to be a big basketball fan, and Brentford fans may be intrigued to know that the forward classes himself as an avid badminton enthusiast.

‘I couldn’t name any badminton players, but I started playing in school and really enjoy it. I play a lot in my spare time with my friends.’

Bees fans will be hoping the player serves up a few aces of his own on Saturday, when they welcome rivals QPR to Griffin Park.
