Thomas Frank admitted his BMW failed to get into gear as Brentford were denied victory at Huddersfield.

The Bees missed the chance to leapfrog Fulham into third and close the gap on Leeds United in second, who fell to defeat at QPR earlier in the day.

Frank admitted his potent front three of Said Benrahma, Bryan Mbeumo and Ollie Watkins failed to hit the heights they’ve set over recent weeks at a resilient Huddersfield side who would’ve stolen three points if it weren’t or Karlan Grant’s blazed effort over from point blank range.

"Offensively on the day our famous BMW was not the tuned version. Definitely not. None of the three were,” Frank said.

"We know, especially away from home, you need one of them to step up to the plate and have a top game. It's always a bit more difficult [away from home] and none of them had a top game.

"We didn't have that, but it was not only them.

“I think throughout the game too many of my players didn't play simple enough, didn't run enough and that final pass was not there.

"We actually only had one big chance where we hit the post, but then I think we had 10 or 12 good opportunities where we needed to get more out of it."

Frank admitted his frustrations with the result against a lowly Dan Cowley side fighting relegation, but felt the point could be crucial come the end of the season.

“We will find out at the end of the season whether that's a valuable point or not," he continued.

"We always try to go and get three points.

“I said to the players before that Huddersfield are a very difficult side to play against and they showed that again today.

"Danny Cowley and his coaching staff have done a really good job since they've come into the club.

“It's not surprising that they were well-prepared for us and that they wanted to do everything they could to close us down.

"That's natural because we're on quite a good run and, at this moment in time, we're pretty good going forward.

“So I would say our foundation is still really good and we're still really difficult to score against.

"I think Huddersfield created absolutely nothing except for one really big chance, which was for me a clear misunderstanding from my centre-back,Julian Jeanvier.

“He should have just cleared the ball.

“I don't know why he just let it go past him in the penalty area.

"But except for that, they had zero things, which I'm pleased with and shows why we've progressed so much on the defensive side."
