Mikkel Damsgaard felt the Bees could well have made more of their opportunities following a goalless draw on the South Coast with AFC Bournemouth.
Neither side were able to break the deadlock at the Vitality Stadium with Brentford perhaps having the better of the opportunities that did arrive as Kristoffer Ajer headed over, while Mikkel himself had a couple of efforts saved by the Cherries’ goalkeeper.
“I’m stood here with a little bit of a bad feeling because we didn’t score," said Mikkel following the match. “We say that if we can’t score then we make sure that we at least get a draw, but it feels bad not to score and not to get three points.”
It wasn’t a game which was full of clearcut chances for either side, as Gary O’Neil’s side limited Brentford and made it difficult for the likes of Damsgaard, Bryan Mbeumo and Ivan Toney to get in behind the Bournemouth back line.
Mikkel continued: “They did a good job but we had chances. We need to be a little more creative and we lacked some quality in the final third of the pitch today. The shots [from Mikkel] were not the best, the second one towards the corner needs to be better.”
The 22-year-old was in action recently for Denmark as they picked up an impressive 2-0 win over France in the UEFA Nations League. Mikkel grabbed an assist for the side and he hopes to build on that as he continues to settle into his new club.
“I feel like I am physically ready to start," said the Dane after making his first Premier League start. “I made some bad mistakes sometimes so I want to get rid of that and try to play every minute in every game. Assists give confidence and I’m hoping to build that more and more as I play. I want to get more assists and goals.
“It’s been very good; everyone has been really nice and taken care of me. It is a team with a lot of quality, it’s very professional and we have big ambitions so it’s good to be a part of it.”
