Thomas Frank praised the impact of Brentford’s Mads Roerslev off the bench in their 2-2 comeback draw with Blackburn.

The 20-year-old was introduced to the contest at Griffin Park with Frank’s side trailing 2-0 after an Adam Armstrong brace.

After Ollie Watkins’ superb strike, Roerslev, in just his seventh outing for the Bees, excelled from right back, winning a crucial penalty after being upended by Travis Lewis after a slaloming run into the Rovers box.

“It’s so nice to have a type like him on the bench,” the Bees boss said of the fellow Dane.

“I know he trains hard every day so he’s ready.

“Most likely as a right-back you’re coming on cold, but he came on with impact, it shows his mentality.

“I think it was a fantastic action for the penalty, it’s a discussable decision (to award the penalty) but it’s a great action.”

The Bees boss also praised his side’s belief to come from two goals down against a Tony Mowbray side looking to keep their faint play-off hopes alive.

“They(Blackburn) looked so tired last ten, fifteen minutes, which is a big praise to our team,” he added

“I’m very very proud of what they produced out there.

“After the second goal there was only one team on the pitch.

“We totally locked them in and produced chances to get the win.

“That character is so good.

“We gave three chances away but great teams make mistakes.

“Overall I’m very proud but annoyed we didn’t get three points.”
