Brentford were left frustrated after only picking up a point against Aston Villa in Saturday’s Premier League fixture. Despite a strong performance from the Bees, they were unable to find a winner and had to settle for a 1-1 draw. Manager Thomas Frank said he was disappointed with the result, feeling his side had put in an “almost complete” performance.
The match began with Brentford on the front foot, with Said Benrahma and Bryan Mbeumo both going close in the opening stages. However, it was Aston Villa who took the lead midway through the first half, as John McGinn fired home from close range. Brentford responded well and equalised just before half-time, with Ollie Watkins heading home from a corner.
The second half saw both sides create chances, but neither could find a winner. Brentford had the better of the chances, but were unable to make them count and had to settle for a point. After the match, Thomas Frank said he was frustrated with the result, feeling his side had put in an “almost complete” performance.
