After being caught out by the long ball and counter-attack, most recently by Millwall and Nottingham Forest, the Bees boss has admitted the style of play is a gamble and has seen them exposed but without it they will not get the goals at the other end.

“We can leave an extra two men back if we want to. That won’t happen. We won’t get the same rewards at the other end of the pitch. We can be more defensive and lose out on our attacking ploys or we can recognise the fact that sometimes it is the price you have to pay. That is the nature of the beast,” Said Warburton to BBC Sport.

Mark Warburton’s Brentford side have conceded the most goals in the tightly packed top eight of the Sky Bet Championship, 55 in total, but the Brentford boss believes the goals scored by his side is the most important stat in the league table and intends to stick to his sides style of play.

“You look at our goals scored and it is an important column to look at.”

With five games remaining the Bees are right in the mix for promotion, sitting in seventh place, and they do have a favourable run in by not playing any team in the top ten of the Sky Bet Championship in their last four games.

Despite this, they have a huge game against promotion rivals Derby County in front of the Sky cameras this Saturday, which is sure to be a very good clash between two of the best attacking teams in the league.
