Brentford manager Uwe Rosler has hailed Scott Barron following the left-back’s return to league action.
The 27-year-old, who underwent hip surgery and had not featured since February, replaced Jake Bidwell – who faces a lengthy spell out with an ankle injury – for Saturday’s win over Walsall.
Barron made only seven starts last season after joining from Millwall, but Rosler opted to play him rather than Javi Venta against the Saddlers.
And Rosler said: “Scott played for the first game in ages and he was very solid.
“He has been away from the first team for a long, long time. He had his operation and Jake cemented his place.
“[But] Jake is another player with a nasty injury and we will miss him for a while.
“The question was between Javi or Scott and we went with Scott and he more than did himself justice.
“He played well and he can be happy with the way he came through his first league game.”
