Brentford head coach Thomas Frank was delighted with his side's 'never-say-die attitude' after their late equaliser in the 2-2 draw with Bournemouth at Gtech Community Stadium.

Since the start of the 2021/22 season, only Brighton (13) and Man City (13) have scored more goals in the 90th minute or after than the Bees (12), and Frank insisted that is down to the character of his squad.

He said: "For the neutral, it was unbelievably entertaining. Of course, I was a little bit irritated that we didn’t get three points but, putting that aside quickly, I want to focus on a very good performance.  

“Good first half, fantastic second half - I think we just ran over Bournemouth, we created chance after chance after chance.  

“How we didn't score more goals is incredible. I'm a big believer that if you play this game 100 times, we would win it 98 out of 100; draw one - that was today - and lose one. 

“We made a mistake that gave them a goal but that happens. I said to Rico [Henry] to keep his head up because he's been good in that situation 999 times out of 1,000, so that happens. 

“But the character, wow. The never-say-die attitude. The Gtech, when they're rocking and bouncing, is fantastic."

Bryan Mbeumo scored the equalising goal for the Bees on Saturday, which came after a missed opportunity earlier in the second half.

And Frank was delighted with the character and composure his forward showed when one-on-one with the Bournemouth keeper, before he slotted into the back of the net.

On Mbeumo, he added: "Hey, if you miss a chance, the best [players] score quite quick after and he did that.  

“Bryan has developed a lot over the last four years, so I’m very pleased. Four goals so far this season - not bad!”
