Millwall’s away day blues continued as they were beaten 2-0 in a game of few chances at Griffin Park.

Second half strikes from Sergi Canos and substitute Ollie Watkins gave Brentford their first win in nine matches and Thomas Frank his first win as Brentford manager.

The defeat leaves Neil Harris's Millwall 19th in the league, one point above the relegation zone.

It was a fairly quiet first half with regards to clear-chances but Brentford had the lions share of the play.

Benrahma, who was a constant threat down the left, was unlucky not to open the scoring on 28 minutes as he saw his 20-yard effort crash off the bar.

The Lions did carve an opportunity when Shane Ferguson put in a long cross to find Jake Cooper who should’ve done a lot better with his header from six yards out.

The second half was barely two minutes old when Brentford got the breakthrough they deserved. A mix up in the middle of between Tom Elliott and Ryan Leonard was pounced upon and Neal Maupay guided the ball between the defence to find Canos who coolly put the ball underneath Amos in goal.

As the visitors went in search for an equaliser, introducing Morison, Bradshaw and Tunnicliffe off the bench, the game became very open. This suited Brentford and they nearly doubled their lead soon after. Sawyers saw an effort cleared off the line after a goalmouth scramble and Maupay saw an effort fizz inches wide after leaving Millwall captain Hutchinson for dead down the left.

Despite the changes Harris’ men couldn’t carve any real chances with Lee Gregory isolated for much of the game.

It wasn’t long before the home side capitalised on the space at the back and when they did it was worth waiting for. A sweeping move saw Neal Maupay feed Watkins who thumped an effort from the edge of the box past Amos who hadn’t really been tested all game.

The game petered out and Harris will be thinking how to take home form on the road.
