Brentford keeper Daniel Bentley says he cares little about who is in the opposite goal as he prepares for Friday’s derby with Queens Park Rangers.
The former Southend was the subject of interest from Rangers in recent windows but instead chose to swap Roots Hall for Griffin Park and has made himself as Dean Smith’s number one.
Ahead of Friday night’s clash Bentley said he holds no regrets that a move to Loftus Road didn’t materialise and remains focused on helping Brentford bounce back to winning ways.
His opposition keeper will be Alex Smithies and the two have shared similar experiences in recent years after they each won promotion via a penalty shootout with their former clubs Southend United and Huddersfield Town.
But despite that the Brentford man said he has nothing to prove and doesn’t expect there to be any ill feeling between the rival shot-stoppers on Friday.
He said: “I don’t read too much as to who is in the other end in goal obviously, it’s all part of the GKU (goalkeepers union) so there’s no animosity or extra want to prove anything to anybody.
“I didn’t go to QPR for various reasons and I’m here and I’m happy and I’ll do everything I can to help Brentford win a game.
"Alex Smitihies has been around for a long time and ended up going to QPR for his own reasons but I’m here and I’m hoping to get Brentford three points.”
