Thomas Frank got his first win as Brentford manager as his side ran out 2-0 winners against Millwall.

Second half strikes from Sergi Canos and substitute Ollie Watkins gave Brentford their first win in nine matches and lifts them up to 13th in the league.

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 defenders to find Canos who cooly 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. 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 Neil 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 substitute 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 the Brentford manager will be relieved to get his first win under his belt.
