Brentford boss Thomas Frank was frustrated by his side’s lack of patience after their 1-0 defeat at home to Huddersfield.

The Bees mustered three goals in the final ten minutes of their 3-2 win over Millwall in their previous match at Griffin Park but were blanked completely by Danny Cowley’s men.

In the end, it was a second-half Karlan Grant strike that beat David Raya down low and sealed all three points for Huddersfield to end Brentford’s run of three wins on the spin.

“I don’t know why we got so impatient because we know that when we move the ball well we can create chances,” said Frank.

“It was a tough test for us and after three really good performances out there we put in a very average one.

“In the first half Huddersfield managed to slow us down and defend very well and we had very short moments where we could create something.

“And in the second half we actually started to build some momentum to try and break through but their goal changed that and afterwards we didn’t move the ball well enough.

“This league is so even and competitive and it is so difficult to get some momentum but I saw a lot of effort and will, we just lacked the quality and decision-making.

“There are no excuses though – we need to be better at opening up opponents because there were opportunities there but there is only one direction we can move in now, and that is up.”

Brentford came closest to finding an equaliser when Kamil Grabara palmed away Julian Jeanvier’s powerful header in the second half but Frank’s men were unable to breakthrough.

Czech midfielder Jan Zamburek was introduced from the bench in the final five minutes of the game and found himself with an opportunity to shoot at goal but was unable to take advantage.

The 18-year-old has found first-team chances hard to come by so far this season but is hoping to be included in the squad again for Saturday’s trip to Wigan.

“I think in that situation I should have shot but I cut across it with my left foot and it was unlucky,” said the teenager.

“It was very unfortunate that we didn’t get the three points because I thought we started very well and we weren’t the worst team.

“I think a fair result would have been 0-0 but we have to learn from this.

“We will try and take the positives into the game against Wigan where we can definitely get three points.”
