Thomas Frank is desperate for Brentford to turn possession into points when they face Derby this weekend having come away empty handed against Charlton.

The Bees dominated against Charlton and had 21 shots on goal but Conor Gallagher’s first half strike was enough for Lee Bowyer’s side to take all three points and the bragging rights.

But ahead of the visit of Phillip Cocu’s Derby to Griffin Park, Frank insists that he will not be changing too many things in the way the team prepare for the game and is keen to get the first home win of the season on the board.

He said: “We know what kind of style we want to play so in terms of that we always know how we’ll train during the week.

“And in this situation, we have been focusing on only the offensive part.

“I definitely expect an open game, I expect two teams to dominate and attack, I have a feeling that if we hit the day, we will dominate the game.

“It’s two teams that on the day will have spells with the ball where the one team will suffer, and the other team will attack.

“I have a feeling and also by analysing the two teams, I think we will dominate.”

Last season’s top scorer Neal Maupay moved to Brighton just before the transfer deadline and since then Brentford have struggled in front of goal.

Brentford have only found the back of the net twice in the league this season and as a result are 19th in the Championship.

But Frank says his players have been dealing with their frustration well.

“I would say after the matches, they are mostly quiet, of course a few swearing and frustration bits just after the game but after that people are just disappointed,” he said.

“And then they start talking and when we meet on Monday and we do the analysis and then they get out there running, and at this moment in time there’s a bit of sun, and they get blood through the system.

“And then the day after we’re already looking ahead for the next game. So, it’s been okay, I’d say, not a big problem at all but every knows it’s easier the more often you win matches.”
