You won't catch Ryan Woods doing anything dramatic ahead of Brentford's game with QPR as the Bees midfielder is not one for superstitions.
Players around the country have their little foibles when they prepare for a game. Gary Neville, for instance, liked to sit on the toilet and read the matchday programme.
But, for Woods, he prefers to be in a relaxed state of mind and focusing on how he can win the game for his side.
Woods said: “I just chill out. I'm a laid back person. I don't have any certain rituals that I do before a game.
“I relax and think about the good things I'm going to do in the game and concentrate on that really. I don't really have any special routine.”
Woods will take a look at an opponent but he prefers to focus on what he does and how he can impact their game, rather than how they can impact his.
He added: “I will have a look but, for me, I try not to look at the opposition. I want to focus on myself and what I do right and let them worry about me.”
Woods has been one of Brentford's standout players this season and he knows he has improved over the last two and a half years at the club but he wants to get better in every area.
He reflected: “I'd like to think I've developed a lot and there's still a lot to come from me tactically, technically.
“I want to be the best I can be. My aim is to play in the Premier League and I want to achieve that sooner rather than later.
“I'm trying every day in training and games. There are always setbacks, not so good performances. You take each day as it comes.”
