Despite putting together a 21-match unbeaten streak in the Championship, Brentford had been far from perfect heading into Sunday’s meeting with Barnsley.While the 2-0 defeat to the Tykes naturally came as a surprise, it was one slow start too many for the Bees, who have made a habit of conceding early goals.
Sitting just a point adrift of new leaders Norwich, Thomas Frank will not over-react to the recent setback, but it would have suggested to the Dane that some of his players are running on empty after a relentless run of games.
Brentford have competed in 10 fixtures since January 5, with another four StreamChampionship games to be played before the end of February.
Although the weekend’s defeat ended a run of scoring in 11 successive matches, Frank will be more concerned with six games having been played without keeping a clean sheet. Narrowly losing the reverse fixture acted as the catalyst for a 10-match winless streak for QPR, leading to murmurings about the long-term future of Mark Warburton.
