After several days of speculation over a possible move from Brentford, Frank Onyeka was back on the pitch for the Bees as they snatched a point against Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Tuesday.

Onyeka featured in the 1-1 against Palace at Selhurst Park, Yoane Wissa with an 88th-minute equalizer.
Though he did not start, Onyeka made his second appearance of the league season coming off the bench yet again.
The midfielder was handed 23 minutes against the Eagles and he put in enough work to the delight of the Manager, Thomas Frank.
He managed 20 touches and completed 17 passes, 1 interception, 1 block, 1 Clearance, 1 Aerial duel and 1 tackle.
Meanwhile, one man who has been in the news of late, Ivory Coast’s Wilfried Zaha showed Chelsea why they need to come get him before the end of the transfer window.
Zaha grabbed the game’s opener in the 59th-minute, with a fine curler from the edge of the box – his fourth goal in as many games this season.
Searching for an equalizer, Brentford sent on Frank Onyeka in place of Bryan Mbeumo in the 66th minute.
Onyeka did took the fight to Palace, helping the Bees recovered the ball and set the attackers free.
He had 16 accurate passes from his 20 touches overall at an accuracy of 94.1% while also bagging one (1) key pass and another accurate long ball.
The former FC Midtjylland midfielder will hope for some game time when the Bees clash with Leeds United next at the Community Stadium.
