3 things we learned about Brentford during sensational weekend win

Published

on

It was a pulsating weekend for fans of Millwall and Brentford as the two sides played out a classic at Griffin Park on Saturday afternoon.

Goals from Jed Wallace and Tom Bradshaw either side of half-time put the visitors in firm control, and it looked like they would cruise to victory from their.

But an electric final ten minutes from the home side saw the result turned on its head.

Goals from Josh Dasilva, Bryan Mbeumo and Ollie Watkins made sure it was the West Londoners who took all three points in a match that will not be forgotten in a hurry.

Here are THREE things we learned about Brentford…

Reslience

It may be an obvious point we certainly saw the most resilience from a Brentford team than we have for a very long time.

The Bees missed a first-half penalty and fell two goals down, which would be enough to completely demoralise plenty of teams in the same situaiton.

But something kept them going and to score three goals in the last ten minutes is truly outstanding. Was it Frank’s words? Tactical changes? Or just something from within the team? Either way, it worked wonders.

Will this result turn Brentford's season around?

YES

YES

NO

NO

Benrahma shows his class

He may not have scored himself, but the winger dragged his side back into this game, providing assists for two of their three goals and basically dragging them forwarc on more than one occasion.

It was a showing that reminded you why he was so highly sought after in the summer and why he probably will be again in January.

Having a game changer like that in your side will always give you a chance and it is important that Brentford remember that going forward.

Season defining?

Obviously, we cannot say for sure whether this result will prove crucial, but it has that sense in the immediate aftermath.

Had they been comfortably beaten 2-0 at home to local rivals and relegation-threatened Millwall, it could have been the result that ended their promotion hopes – in the heads of some of the players and fans anyway.

But coming back to win, and not just draw, is the sort of occurence that can really kick-start a season. The Bees were expected to challenge for promotion, and there is a real chance we will now see that.
