Brentford's 2-1 defeat at Luton Town on Tuesday night came as a surprise to most.

A 7-0 thrashing at Griffin Park in the reverse fixture had most Bees' fans expecting Thomas Frank's outfit would end a three game winless run. 

Shandon Baptiste's own goal and Martin Cranie's strike before the break however meant Graeme Jones's side picked up an invaluable three points despite Ollie Watkins's late consolation. 

As the Hatters were lifted from the foot of the table, the Bees slipped to fifth, six points behind Leeds in second who have a game in hand, and just three ahead of Bristol City in seventh. 

The almost nailed-on play-off spot is now not looking a certainty as they head to Cardiff City on Saturday.

Brentford fans took social media to air their thoughts of their plight following the defeat, raising questions over team selecton, especially Frank's decision to play three at the back, despite having only one bonafide centreback in the line-up.
