Ezri Konsa believes Brentford can build on their goalless draw against Birmingham when they face Championship high flyers Norwich at Griffin Park on New Year’s Day.

The draw extended the Bees’ unbeaten run to three games over the festive period and kept Thomas Frank’s side in 18th in the table.

The Bees welcome Norwich to Griffin Park on Tuesday who have picked up just a point from their last two games after a run that saw them climb into the automatic promotion places.

And Konsa believes that the way in which they ground out a point in a tough game and hostile atmosphere at St Andrew’s will stand them in good stead for Daniel Farke’s side.

Konsa told the Brentford website: “I felt it was a very tough game. They are a very aggressive team but the lads stuck together and did very well.

“In the first half I felt we dominated but in the second half they came out strong but we dealt with it well and kept a clean sheet.

“The clean sheet is very pleasing, the way we have been going we have been conceding a few goals, so to keep a clean sheet is very good.

“Everyone who has been to the last three games can see that we have been going in the right direction so the hard work is paying off.

“We have won one and drawn two in the last three games and that gives us something to build on.

“After the game everyone was pleased with the result, obviously we didn’t get the win but we came away from a tough place with a point.”

With both Brentford and Norwich favouring an expansive brand of football, Konsa believes Tuesday’s clash will be a different kind of game to the bore draw at Birmingham.

The Bees lost 1-0 at Carrow Road back in October and Konsa is hoping for a different outcome this time around.

He added: “Both Norwich and us like to play football and so I think it will be a tight game. Hopefully we can get the three points.”
