Ahead of the match at Newcastle on Saturday Dan Bentley has spoken of the ‘unbelievable support’ the Brentford fans have so far shown since he came to the Bees from Southend in the summer.

Brentford will be backed by around 3,000 travelling fans at St James’ Park at the weekend as the Bees return to action after the international break telling Get West London he’s hopeful of them being given ‘something to cheer about.’

‘It’s unbelievable support. The support across the season has been fantastic. While the fans have the extra draw of Newcastle after they came down and the chance to tick a new stadium off the list, the players’ focus will be on the job at hand and hopefully we’ll give the excellent support something to cheer about.’

The numbers travelling were something he went onto add he, and the remainder of the squad, were very much appreciative of especially as Newcastle involves such a long journey for the fans.

Newcastle are a huge club in the Championship, and as much as this is a big match that all will look forward to, the ‘keeper was keen to stress it shouldn’t be seen as a ‘bigger game than any other’ we play.

Like any other the intention is to come away with three-points, he finished by saying.

‘Every game in this division is tough but a chance to test ourselves against players that have played higher which many clubs have got in this day and age. It’s important that we don’t look at it as a bigger game than any of the other games we played. We gave a good account of ourselves there. We’ll be looking to do similar up at Newcastle and come away with three points.’
