You would be hard pushed to find a better keeper in the Championship than Brentford custodian Dan Bentley.
So says Millwall boss Neil Harris, who was impressed with the Bees' man between the sticks during his side's 1-0 defeat at Griffin Park.
Bentley made a number of crucial saves and capped an excellent performance by keeping out Lee Gregory's spot kick to earn the Bees the points.
“If Lee puts the penalty away then we wouldn’t be talking about this. We should have been clinical and ruthless enough to have got something” said Harris.
“That said, Bentley is the best keeper outside the Premier League, so you have to find something special to beat him.”
Bubbly Bentley has become a key character in the Brentford dressing room since his move from Southend 15 months ago.
In the Bees' last game before the international break, he was handed the captain's armband for the closing stages of the 2-2 draw at Middlesbrough and called it a privilege.
"I’ve always tried to have that leadership skill in my game ever since I was young,” he said at the time.
“It’s something that I wanted to grow up with and the captaincy is certainly a role which, if it was ever offered to me, I’d thrive off.
"It was a great honour and a privilege to wear the armband for the first time in my career.”
