Thomas Frank wanted to see more from his Brentford side in the final third as they slipped to defeat at Ewood Park.

Brentford had scored nine goals in three consecutive away wins but Bradley Dack’s first goal inflicted just a second defeat in seven matches on the Bees.

Said Benrahma hit the post from a free kick, but despite clocking up the possession and territory, Frank wanted more patience from his side.

He said: “I think when we look through the game, it was quite open, a lot of chances in both boxes.

“I think we normally defend better than we did, from open play and on transition, bits came because we had to chase it. I would have liked to us have been more calm and composed and keep playing.

“I think it took us too long to get in to the game, you can’t expect to dominate. That was the intention.

“Second half was better, played more behind them, pressed with more intensity and created the chances we needed to get the equaliser

“We still need to learn to create bigger and better chances when we’re chasing because we have the quality. Don’t be inpatient.”

Benrahma rattled the frame of the goal, with Christian Walton’s only real save coming from a well struck Christian Mbuemo drive.

And Frank told his club’s website: “We needed to test him more, and we have the quality to do that.

“We lacked the final touch, decision-making, from some of the offensive players to make the decisive action or pass.

“We were a bit unlucky, some magic from Said to hit the post, that could have turned the game.

“It was a solid performance, we have to learn from this, it’s a bump in the road, but we have been good on the road. We need to get back on track against Luton on Saturday.”
