He and his team-mates conjured up three stunning strikes at Bolton on Saturday – but now Nico Yennaris wants Brentford to start putting away some of their easier chances.
Yennaris' long-ranger, Yoann Barbet's well struck free kick and Ollie Watkins' top corner belter earned the Bees their first three points of the season at the Macron Stadium.
That it took them this long to record a victory, despite having the most shots out of any team in the Championship so far, says all you need to know about the need to finish off more the numerous opportunities they create.
“It was three great strikes, that's sometimes how it is,” said Yennaris. “We haven't put the easier chances away, and hopefully we can start doing that now.
“Of course mine was the best. A few of the boys are saying I was lucky, but if you don't shoot you don't score.
“We know how good Yoann is, he practices them all the time. It wasn't his night Tuesday but he's put it right today, he showed great character.”
Indeed, it wasn't just Barbet who had a stinker last Tuesday. The only players who could hold their heads high following the Carabao Cup exit to Norwich were the youngsters promoted to the side.
None of the senior squad members put in a shift to be proud of against the Canaries, but they bounced back in style at Bolton after a difficult start.
“I was very disappointed with Tuesday,” Yennaris said. “It was a tough game to take, but we've come here and put the performance right, everything was just flowing.
“We knew what they're about and they went long. They were on top in the first 10, and as the half went on we became more like us and got our passing game going.
“Yoann produced a great strike and we went into half-time 1-0 up, then we built on that. Credit not only on the way we went forward but also the way we defended. Dan made some great saves and the back four defended the box really well.”
The Bees will be hoping to build on that win when Derby County are the visitors to Griffin Park tomorrow night.
“We know they're a good team and one of the bigger teams in the league,” Yenarris added. “but hopefully we turn up on Tuesday and get the result.”
