Sawyers to continue as Brentford captain

Romaine Sawyers will continue as Brentford captain after Thomas Frank ditched his predecessor’s rotation policy.

Former Bees boss Dean Smith, now in charge at Aston Villa, decided in the summer to interchange the armband between several key players.

But after Sawyers captained the side to victory over Millwall, Frank said: “We’ve gone to two captains.

“One will have the armband – that’s Romaine. He will carry it. The second one is Henrik Dalsgaard.”
