Brentford winger Sam Saunders feared he would be replaced before his two-goal super-show in the 5-0 win over Leyton Orient.

Saunders was unhappy with his first-half display, but after the break he set up a goal for Leon Legge before netting with two superb free-kicks.

"First half I thought I was terrible," he admitted. "I thought the gaffer might pull me off.

"I didn't think we played well as a team, and I didn't.

"The assist for Leggy's goal gave me confidence and I was delighted with the two free-kicks. I practice day after day in training for moments like that."
