Brentford head coach Thomas Frank has told FourFourTwo that he was delighted with the way Brentford played in their 1-1 draw with Millwall after having a man sent off.

The Bees don’t have anything to play for but pride and there was plenty of that up for grabs as they played against Millwall in a London derby. But they were put on the back foot when Lee Gregory scored the opener for the Lions though Josh Da Silva was able to grab an equaliser quickly for the Bees. However when Henrik Dalsgaard was sent off for a professional foul, Brentford fans feared the worst. But they were able to hold on and get a creditable point from this match.

Frank was very happy with the performance, especially considering that they got a man sent off in the first half. He praised their determination and resilience in the game as they even looked like they could win the game despite the red card.

He said: “[It was] a proper Championship game, I would say,”

“The red card – I think it was a little bit harsh but it is what it is. After that, of course, it’s a different game but the mentality and the attitude was brilliant from the players and we did what we wanted to do throughout the game.”

“We still had a high line, we still tried to play – of course, we had to work even harder – but I think it was a deserved point and we had chances and opportunities to take the win.”

“I would say we know when we’re on top of our game we can be extremely good going forward. Some of the issue this season is that we haven’t been consistent enough consistently, and haven’t been strong enough in different spells.”

“I’m very pleased and proud of the boys for what they did and managed it for 60 minutes under difficult circumstances.”

“In that way, I’m pleased. Of course, you always want more.”
