If people don't believe that a week is a long time in football then look no further than Romaine Sawyers as proof of this fact.

On October 22, he was the 'villain' in Brentford fans' eyes and was jeered off during the poor 2-0 home defeat to Barnsley.

However, by October 28, he was the 'hero' after a wonderful finish to secure the Bees a 2-0 win at rivals QPR.

Sawyers was down after the loss to Barnsley, admitting he was finding it a struggle to make the step up to the Championship.

However, the squad, staff and supporters rallied round him telling him to keep his chin up telling him that his moment will come.

Just six days later, that moment did come and Sawyers ensured that he will always be remembered fondly at Griffin Park as the Bees outclassed QPR.

After a shaky opening first 10 minutes, Brentford started to take control and took a deserved lead as Josh Clarke slid the ball under Alex Smithies for the opener.

QPR tried to mount a fightback after half-time but the Bees took control again with Clarke and Maxime Colin helping to set up the decisive moment.

The Frenchman squared the ball to Sawyers who lifted his shot into the top corner and sent the Brentford fans behind that goal into a state of delirium.

The perfect way to silence his critics.
