FC Player of the Day, Sep 29: Ollie Watkins (Brentford)

The young forward is attracting major Premier League interest and hit a treble at Barnsley

Brentford haven't enjoyed the smoothest start to the season and despite an early setback away at Barnsley they turned the match around thanks mainly to the performance of forward Ollie Watkins.

A hat-trick of headers, the first a run off the defender at the back post to nod home, the second, taking advantage of a misjudgement from the goalkeeper to convert easily and the third, the most difficult, taking the ball on the bounce to push into the net. Poacher's efforts from a player who is more traditionally a winger but has been forced to play more centrally this season following the sale of Neal Maupay to Brighton.

Watkins even found the time to also hit the bar and the post in an all-round attacking display, and with the talented Said Benrahma pulling the strings behind him, expect Watkins to put up the type of goal numbers that will have Premier League clubs interested in January.
