Sawyers - Kick On From Millwall

Sawyers - Kick On From Millwall

Romaine Sawyers has said that Brentford go into this weekend's game against Sunderland looking to build on our victory over Millwall.

Having picked up our first home win of the campaign and registered our second three points of the year, Sawyers told the Official Site this week that he was delighted to have got his second goal of the year, but he knew everyone had to kick on now and really get our season going.

'Anybody can be a passing team if you are not doing it productively but I think that we are starting to show our productivity. We haven`t had the best of luck so far this season but we are still in and around it. We are only eight points off the Play-Offs so we aren`t too far away. We are at the quarter point of the season now so we just have to keep building on our foundation. This is a good time to kick on.'

With Daniel Bentley securing the three points with his penalty save late on in the game, Sawyers admitted it was a key point, saying we had probably ridden our luck a bit in the build up to the spot kick.

'We performed well even though we rode our luck a little bit with Dan Bentley making the penalty save. We created chances ourselves so I think we got what we deserved. It was a different type of test for us. They were a bit similar to Bolton Wanderers with the fight in them. Everybody says that we are a pretty passing team but I think we showed the other side today. We have always had the belief amongst ourselves. People might come and press us and try us get us into a battle but today we stood up to that.'

With the goal being his second of the season following his strike against Wimbledon in the League Cup, the 25 year old said he was working on finishing in training so to open his league account was pleasing.

'After training this week, Nico Yennaris took me aside and said we should do some finishing. The one that the keeper tipped over in the first-half was something we had been working on. We spoke about shooting from distance before the game. Derby County did the same thing but we didn`t manage to get the shots off. The more shots that we take from long distance then the more they have to come out. We have to have different ways of attacking.'
