Brentford boss Thomas Frank said his side's body language proved key to their comeback in the 5-2 win over Rovers.

Rovers raced in to a 2-0 lead in seven minutes courtesy of goals from Bradley Dack and Danny Graham at Griffin Park.

The Bees were soon back in to it though as Said Benrahma scored a fine solo effort, as an open game saw three goals inside 15 minutes.

They hit four unanswered second half goals, as Ollie Watkins scored a brace before Neal Maupay and Sergi Canos got in on the act in the second half.

And Frank said: "When we went behind so early I looked at the players' body language and they didn't panic, and in the last 15 minutes of the first half we got more into the game.

"At half-time, all of us felt we could turn it around and that it was an opportunity to show how we've improved as a team.

"But I was also disappointed at how we'd defended."

Rovers went in to the game on the back of four successive Championship defeats.

But Brentford are also in fine form, making it nine games without defeat in all competitions after this win.

The Dane acknowledged the two goals Rovers scored as good finishes, but was far from pleased with his side's role in them.

However, he felt the hosts showed more qualities without the ball in the second half to restrict Rovers' chances.

He added: “Turning the game from 2-0 down into 5-2 is very pleasing and I’m very proud of them but we can’t start like this again.

“Both goals were good from Blackburn, but we need to do better defensively.

“I think we were a little bit flat and it was disappointing because we highlighted so much that Blackburn are a good side – and a good side in form.

“But I looked at the players’ body language and the way they communicated with each other – they didn’t panic.

"That was the best thing, that we defended well in the second half and it was difficult for Blackburn to break us down.

“Throughout the game, I don’t think it was a top performance. Stoke was a top performance and I think that game was even more pleasing because we controlled it.”
