Their play-off place may already be assured, but Brentford boss Thomas Frank won’t be letting his side rest on their laurels in the final two matches of the regular season. 

The Bees sit in third spot heading into this weekend’s clash with Premier League-bound Watford, on the back of a ten-match unbeaten run in the league. 

And Frank’s side made history once again on Wednesday night, as their 1-0 victory over Rotherham United saw them break the 80 points barrier in back-to-back seasons for the very first time. 

But despite having nothing to play for until the post-season lottery begins in three weeks’ time, Frank is determined that his side are unrelenting in the season’s run-in.

“I’m really pleased with the culture we’ve been creating here where we want to win the next game no matter what,” Frank said. 

“We want to finish third, we want to finish with as many points as possible, and we want to keep that momentum going. 

“We are ten games unbeaten, we’ve kept five clean sheets in the last six games, so we are in a good place.” 

On the new record he said: “It shows what everyone has been a part of building - the board, the directors, every staff member in the club and of course the players should be very proud that we can do that. 

“We desperately want to keep this and keep it going until the end of the season.” 

You have to go all the way back to the first weekend of March for the last time that the Bees tasted defeat, as they went down 1-0 to high-flying Norwich City at Carrow Road. 

Since then, they have embarked on a run of four wins and six draws, and put themselves within touching distance of securing third spot for the second successive season - sitting four points ahead of fourth-placed Bournemouth with two games remaining. 

Last year was a familiar story for the Bees as they went down 2-1 to local rivals Fulham in the Championship play-off final - making it a record nine defeats in the end-of-season showdowns since they began back in 1987.

But Frank is hoping his team don’t suffer a repeat of last season, when they ended the campaign with two straight defeats to Swansea and Barnsley and blew any momentum they may have gathered. 

That won’t stop him from rotating his side in the final fixtures of the campaign though, with the Dane making five changes for the victory over the Millers in midweek and likely to do so again this weekend. 

“We will need all of our players in the last five games, hopefully, whether they are being game-changers of starting the game,” Frank said. 

“We need to keep everyone fit, ready and available, and I’m very pleased with everyone. 

“In our next game against Watford, we will be doing everything we can to keep the momentum going and get three points.”
