After drawing six of their 11 games, Brentford goalkeeper Dan Bentley admits their performance so far this season has left him feeling indifferent.

The 24-year-old has played in every one of the side’s Championships games this term, which has seen The Bees claim just one win.

Manager Dean Smith has only seen his team lose one of their last seven games, but the failure to secure three points has been somewhat frustrating for Bentley.

But the former Southend United stopper feels Brentford’s fortunes could soon change, as the side makes use of the international break to turn things around.

“There are things that we wanted to iron out and during the last few days we’ve been working hard to utilise the international break to make sure it’s an advantage,” he said.

“It should stand us in good stead going forward. I feel a bit indifferent regarding the season so far.

“The performances have, on the whole, been excellent, but results-wise it hasn’t been excellent.

“It’s been very up and down, it took us a while to get that first win and there’s been games that we should have won and didn’t.

“We’ve not got the return that we wanted or perhaps deserved – that’s something that we’ve addressed as a team and as long as we keep doing the right things we’ll start getting wins.

“It’s a cliché but everything evens itself out over the course of the season. I think we’ve had a lot of our bad luck early on – we’ve not quite had the rub of the green at times.”

Bentley stepped up as captain towards the end of Brentford’s 2-2 draw with Middlesbrough at the end of September.

And he admitted this is something he would like more of in the future, saying: “I’ve always tried to have that leadership skill in my game ever since I was young.

“It’s something that I wanted to grow up with and the captaincy is certainly a role which, if it was ever offered to me, I’d thrive off.

“It was a great honour and a privilege to wear the armband for the first time in my career.”
