It was an uncharacteristic mistake by Westwood, who has been one of Wednesday’s standout performers in recent years.

Despite Westwood’s aberration, Wednesday demonstrated their battling qualities to come-from-behind and seal a second consecutive Hillsborough triumph following goals either side of half-time by Gary Hooper and Ross Wallace.

Westwood today posted on Twitter: “Great character, strength and desire from the lads to come back after a tough first half. Brentford were all over us.

“Big shout out to the Kop for the backing, love and support you gave me after my mistake. It’s much appreciated and returned tenfold.”
