Forshaw’s season comes to an end
The club have today revealed that League One Player of the Year Adam Forshaw has undergone surgery on a persistent ankle injury.
Manager Mark Warburton paid tribute to the former Everton youngster, praising his high performance despite having “to endure discomfort with an injury that has been superbly managed by our medical department”.
On Twitter, Forshaw thanked fans for their get well messages and added that he “can’t wait to be playing Championship football next year”.
Devlin gazes skyward
Chief Executive Mark Devlin has spoken to London24 of his delight at Brentford’s promotion to the Championship with two weeks to spare.
Devlin was grateful that the club “can spend the time planning” as they look to resolve issues such as ticketing in time for next season, given that the current capacity at Griffin Park for away fans stands at only 1,600.
Devlin, however, took encouragement from the likes of Premier League mainstays Swansea City “who, only a couple of years ago were playing in front of eight or nine thousand”.
O’Connor to make the magic monkey?
Club legend Kevin O’Connor is only two appearances away from the 500 game mark, but Mark Warburton refused to guarantee to getwestlondon.co.uk that the two remaining games this season will see him through.
Though it would be the perfect way to round off the promotion campaign, the boss said of the defender’s possible involvment “We will be doing the right thing in terms of trying to win those games”, though he did admit O’Connor did a “fine job” against Franchise FC (AKA MK Dons) yesterday.
Clearly Warbs wishes to remain professional right through to the end of the season, but with Wolves already crowned champions, Bees fans will surely be happy to see the club pay its respects to one of its greatest ever servants.
