Thomas Frank looking to avoid more ‘sleepless nights’
It’s been a solid start to life in the top-flight for Brentford, predicated on defensive solidity with only the top three conceding fewer goals (9). But Sunday was certainly a day to forget in that manner, with the Bees battling from a goal down to level at 1-1 against Leicester, only to throw away the point less than 15 minutes later, being easily cut open on the break.
Thomas Frank has since admitted the nature of his side’s defending for the Foxes’ winner left him with a “sleepless night”, though he confirms work has been done on the training ground to rectify the mistakes.
“I hate losing, no matter how well we performed, but it is what it is,” he said. “There were many positive things to take away from the game and we need to learn.
“There are things we need to improve – especially on their second goal which is one which can actually cost me sleepless nights because that is an area where we are better than most of the teams.
“But we corrected it today and hopefully we are not going to see that at least for a long, long time.”
