Mark Warburton is hoping Brentford's decision to release Lewis Grabban doesn’t come back to haunt them tonight.
The Norwich City striker scored seven goals in 32 games during three spells at Griffin Park but was shown the door in 2011 before kick-starting his career with Rotherham and Bournemouth.
But Bees boss Warburton says he has no regrets letting the £3million frontman go, despite his flying start to the season that has saw him smash five goals in six starts for his new side.
He said: “Lewis was a quiet guy and didn’t show then what he’s capable of. That happens in football and sometimes you take players who aren’t doing very well and they blossom.
“Hindsight is a marvellous thing but at the time it was the right thing to do. There’s no doubting his quality now - he’s an excellent striker who has fully justified an expensive move.
“We know all about his qualities. He’s quick and scores goals but we have to make sure we snuff out the threat."
