‘Had a mare there’, ‘What are you doing lad’ – Plenty of Brentford fans round on Raya after keeper gifts Huddersfield opening goal

Brentford are a side who have always seemed able to simply overwhelm opponents with their offensive talents. That hasn’t changed this season.

Last season it was the feared BMW trio of Said Benrahma, Brian Mbeumo and Ollie Watkins. This time around, only Mbeumo remains of that trio but the Bees have the free-scoring Ivan Toney leading the line.

The trouble is, Brentford have often been found wanting at the back when it has mattered most and that was definitely the case this afternoon against Huddersfield Town.

Raya hesitancy gifts Huddersfield Town early Easter present

A through ball from Town didn’t look like it posed much of a threat when it reached Brentford right-back Mads Roeslev. However, the Terriers went into pressing mode and a hurried ball from him infield found Christian Norgaard who was instantly closed down by the Huddersfield midfield.

Suitably harried, he lost the ball and it ended up at Lewis O’Brien’s feet. A quick shuffle of his feet and he let fly from 25 yards out.

Brentford keeper Raya, who’d advanced to the edge of his area, was left scurrying back. Off-balance and wrong-footed, Raya couldn’t alter his footing quick enough to stop O’Brien’s placed finish which was across him and into the bottom left corner of his goal.
