Brentford fully deserved the three points from their thrilling 3-2 comeback win at Griffin Park according to Bees boss Thomas Frank.

Ollie Watkins injury-time strike completed a remarkable turnaround which saw the home side come from two goals down with six minutes remaining to take the spoils.

Watkins missed a first half penalty as Tom Bradshaw and Jed Wallace gave the visitors a cushion before substitutes Josh Dasilva and Bryan Mbeumo levelled drew the game level.

“We 100% deserved to win,” a jubilant Frank said.

“Down 2-0 with six minutes to go you should be more than happy with a draw, but having that capacity, that level, mental strength to turn it around is incredible.

“It also shows that in football, when you have momentum, anything can happen, especially at Griffin Park.”

Brentford enjoyed the Lions share of possession in the opening 45 minutes but failed to capitalise on a number of glorious opportunities with Millwall keeper Bartosz Bialkowksi denying the home side.

Watkins penalty miss on 23minutes added to the frustration as Bradshaw’s goal on the stroke of half time gave the visitors an unlikely lead at the break.

“First half we would’ve liked us to be even in control, but what we wanted is to create more than the opposition, and at half-time we had five or six great chances to their one, we had massive chances.

“Second half we started very well on the front foot, but having the goal disallowed took it out of us for 10-15minutes.

“We’ve been down this route before with the Birmingham game, we work so hard and don’t get what we deserve, that’s football, that’s life, you need to manage it.

“We needed to stay positive, bring energy and do it together.”

Frank spoke of his side’s mentality and how much it has improved since the start of the season.

“When they get the disallowed goal, to manage your emotion and stay in the game is tough.

“But the character to turn it round is unbelievable.

“I think you need to be in several experiences to see how you act as a team.

“I think we got a lot of crucial experience today, a massive one.

“There’ll never be any doubt now, when we are down 2-0 with five to go, we can turn it round.”

The Bees boss feels his side are close to finding their top gear after a summer overhaul, with 12 games gone and sitting 13th in the table, he feels his side are on the right path.

“Nothing I granted in football.

“Every game has its own history.

“But I can see the stats, we’ve played one bad game away to Preston, that’s showing signs of consistency.

“We are consistent, we are starting to click, we don’t know if we can always keep it up, but It shows we are going in the right direction.”
