Tony Craig insists Brentford still have a few lessons to learn, despite yesterday's 3-2 win at Millwall sending them up to sixth in the Championship.
Amidst all the euphoria of a third win in a row, it could easily be forgotten that the Bees let a two-goal lead slip before clawing back the lead to claim the three points.
For Craig, who came through the ranks at The New Den and spent eight years with Millwall before moving across London two years ago, the comeback just added to a memorable day.
He said: “It was a great occasion for myself and my family. I’ve got some family in Millwall and some who wanted the Brentford tickets. It’s a special occasion for me personally.
“We knew what was coming at us, but we knew their strengths and weaknesses. We’ve got to learn from that, as going from 2-0 up to 2-2 isn’t good. But at least we got the three points.”
Having got his own big day out the way, Craig knows the big one for Bees fans comes in 12 days time, when after the international break, they host west London rivals Fulham.
Brentford will be looking to avenge Augusts' Capital One Cup exit against the men from up the Thames when the two teams meet again at Griffin Park on November 21.
He added: “It’s a big one for the fans. We’re coming in for a couple of days, and then I’ve got family time. It’s been a fantastic week for the club as a whole. Let’s enjoy it. I’m going to enjoy my family time and then my mind is on Fulham.”
