Neal Maupay has come in for plenty of criticism for his miss at Cardiff, some of it justified but some have taken it too far, but football has a way of seeing players go from zero to hero; just ask Yoann Barbet.
The Brentford defender was subject to social media ridicule after his ballooning penalty miss against Norwich in the League Cup third round yet then scored a fine free kick at Bolton on the Saturday.
And it would not be a surprise to anyone to see Maupay score a screamer for the Bees against Burton on Tuesday to end all talk about his miss.
“In one game you're not doing well and you're the hero the game after. Saturday was a bad day and I hope Tuesday is a good day,” Barbet said.
“He's just frustrated. When you miss chances, you're frustrated. I'm sure he will get an opportunity in the next game and score a difficult goal.
“We're all human and we can miss chances. Yes, it was a big chance and it could have been 1-1. If we don't score, we have to defend properly also and we didn't do it so we didn't deserve to win today.”
Barbet was also unhappy with how he and his team-mates defended in Wales, especially conceding from a throw in in the opening stages.
He added: “We are frustrated because we knew it'd be a tough game and we conceded a poor first goal from a throw in that we had worked on all week.
“After seven minutes after you concede a goal like this, it's hard to take but you have to react. We tried to play and had chances.
“I could have equalised from the free kick and Neal had the big chance to equalise and they scored one or two minutes after that big chance.
“That killed us a bit and I think we reacted well in the second half and had some chances to come back in the game.
“If you don't take your chances and don't defend well then you don't win games. It's a shame to stop this run by this performance but we have a game on Tuesday and we need to take the three points to get back in a good run.”
