Brentford new boy looking forward to Bolton, Fulham and QPR games

The stopper grew up in the north west and started his junior career at Manchester United before moving to West Bromwich Albion

Brentford goalkeeper Luke Daniels is excited by the west London derbies against QPR and Fulham, while the trip to Bolton on September 23 is one he is particularly looking forward to.

The stopper grew up in the north west and started his junior career at Manchester United before moving to West Bromwich Albion.

After a series of loan spells, the 29-year-old spent the past two seasons at Scunthorpe before moving down south and up to the Championship.

And he is looking forward to having a more impressive derby day after two years without a major game.

The Brentford man said: “Anyone in the north west is nice. There are a few derbies down here as, at Scunthorpe, there was only Doncaster.

“Playing up at home will be nice. I grew up a Bolton fan so I'm looking forward to that.”

Bolton pipped Scunthorpe to promotion and, while Daniels is pleased for their success he hated the fact it came at his and the Iron's expense.

He added: “It's one of them. You're in football so at the end of the day, you've got to do everything you can to beat them. You want them to do well, not at the expense of your team.”
