Nick Proschwitz trudged off. The gangly German had spent an hour supposedly leading the line. In truth he'd been useless, and would remain so for the whole season. 

On in his place was Scott Hogan. The striker looked ready. Ready to find the goal that would level the match. Ready to prove that he was the striker Brentford could rely on for the whole season. 

But alas he couldn't find the goal. In fact, he only played another 15 minutes of football for 20 months. Hogan ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament as a subsitute in a win over Rotherham in August 2014 and then did the same in training as he attempted to return in April 2015. 

During that time, Andre Gray filled in for Hogan as Brentford's main frontman. Scored 16 league goals to fire them into the play-offs. Signed for Burnley. Became The Championship's leading scorer with 25 goals. And gained promotion to The Premier League. All this from a man who was Scott Hogan's back up.

Nick Proschwitz meanwhile re-signed for German side FC Paderborn. What happened after that wasn't quite as impressive as Gray. 

Gray's rise to the top of The Championship scoring charts has seen comparisons drawn with Jamie Vardy. Both players started in non-league with Gray playing for Hinkley Town before making his name at Luton. One of Vardy's former clubs is Halifax Town where he teamed up with another Championship striker. That striker? Scott Hogan. 

Hogan eventually made his return for Brentford as a subsitute in a 1-0 defeat to Blackburn in March. Despite picking up a hamstring injury, Hogan was soon back in the team and got his first Brentford goal against Bristol City - grabbing a stoppage time equaliser having just missed a penalty.

It was the first of seven goals in as many games for the striker as he and Brentford enjoyed a fruitful end to the season. Hogan - our for 20 months - not only scored seven in seven, but seven in 163 minutes of game time - less than two games. They were big goals as well - two late winners as a sub against Cardiff followed by braces in thumping wins over Fulham and Huudersfield.

Having been on the treatement table for so long, Scott Hogan is back and ready to make up for lost time. At the age of 24 it's on his side and next season is all geared up to be the one where he shines. There's talk of Andre Gray putting his name in the mix for the Qatar World Cup in two years time - if he chooses to play for England, who's to say his former Brentford team mate won't join him? He's certainly not a bad bet for the second tier's top scorer next term. 

Scott Hogan is back and he's on fire. Championship defences - you have been warned. 

"Your defence is terrified, Scott Hogan's on fire"
