Liverpool youngster Canos shines as Sunderland keeper Pickford eventually beaten

Sergi Canos made a sudden impact for Brentford in their come-from-behind win over Preston North End on the weekend.


The Liverpool young gun changed the course of the game for Marinus Dijkhuizen's side who had fallen behind early to the visiting Lilywhites, landing the London club's Man of the Match award despite only coming on halfway through the second half.

Preston started the game in rampant fashion with a goal from Daniel Johnson inside 30 seconds and could have quite possibly been three goals ahead early before Brentford fought back and forced three top-quality saves from Pickford, who first kept out Yoann Barbet's header from a corner, prior to his safe hands denying Jake Tidwell's volley.

The Black Cats youngster then managed to keep out Konstantin Kerschbaumer's effort before it was Canos' time to shine.

The 18-year-old Spanish forward came off the bench in the 61st minute, 30 seconds before supplying the equaliser for the Bees, with a lovely run and cut-back for Lasse Vibe.

Brentford then completed a stunning comeback at Griffin Park when Marco Djuricin beat Pickford at his near post three minutes later to come away with maximum points.

Another loanee, Manchester United's Will Keane, came off the bench for the Lilywhites to replace Neil Kilkenny in the 72nd minute.
