Brentford

Ollie Watkins issues heartwarming gesture that Brentford fans are likely to love

Published

on

The break from competitive action continues, with no scheduled return date in place as of yet in football across the UK. 

It means that the race for promotion in the Championship has been put on hold for the time being, which will be frustrating for some clubs that had been in an impressive run of form.

One team that is firmly in that race for promotion is Brentford, with the Bees currently sat fourth in the second tier standings heading into the final nine games of the season.

One player that has been key to Brentford’s push for promotion into the top-flight is Ollie Watkins, who has netted 22 goals in his 38 appearances to date. 

It’s been a frustrating weekend for Brentford supporters, as it was due to be their final match at Griffin Park taking place in front of the club’s supporters, which didn’t take place due to recent off-the-field events.

Watkins took to Instagram to reveal that he was ‘gutted’ that he couldn’t play in front of the club’s supporters in what should have been their final game at the stadium.

Watkins also gave supporters the chance to win a signed FIFA card and a signed Bees shirt if they revealed what their favourite memory at Griffin Park was.

Ollie Watkins started his career at Plymouth Argyle. True or false?

The Verdict: 

Winning promotion this season would have been the ideal send-off for Griffin Park.

It’s a stadium that holds some fond memories for plenty of Brentford supporters, and the club’s fans would have been confident that they could have achieved promotion this term after some impressive performances.

Watkins has hardly put a foot wrong for the Bees this term, and I think that he could be on the move if they fail to win promotion into the Premier League.

We’ve already seen interest in his services in previous transfer windows, and again, it wouldn’t come as a surprise to see that interest heighten in the future.
