Brentford head coach Thomas Frank labelled the Bees’ performance against Luton Town as “fantastic” and reserved special praise for Yoane Wissa who bagged a first-half brace during the 5-1 win at Kenilworth Road.

Ethan Pinnock, Keane Lewis-Potter and Kevin Schade all scored after the break before Luke Berry netted a late consolation for the Hatters.

“It feels very, very good,” said Frank. “The win, the performance. It’s been a long season and it’s not been going our way. We’ve gone five games unbeaten.

“I hugely respect Luton. What the players and Rob Edwards have done here at Kenilworth Road has made it very difficult for every team. Not one team has done what we’ve done to them today.

“The performance the players put in was fantastic. We had to earn the right to attack by defending well, which we did. We were very good going forward and at playing behind.

“We kept our focus, kept our intensity and scored the goals we needed. I didn’t expect us to be this dominant, so that’s credit to the players.”

On Wissa’s opening goal – a first-time strike from 20 yards – Frank said: “Fantastic magic. A really well-taken goal by Wissa and a good ball from Bryan [Mbeumo]. I’m so happy that Wissa scored two. He has been on the up for a while and I’m pleased with his performance.”

Frank also revealed that he hopes to have striker Ivan Toney back for next weekend’s trip to Everton.

“I really believed he could be ready for this game, but it was just too soon,” said Frank. “I strongly believe he can be ready for Everton – that’s the hope.”
