Kamohelo Mokotjo said that he was “very proud of the boys and the spirit they showed” following Brentford’s 3-2 victory over Preston North End. There was plenty of character on display at Deepdale; The Bees twice pegged back before Ollie Watkins fired home what proved to be the decisive goal with just over twenty minutes to play.

“It was some game,” Kamohelo told iFollow Brentford. “I thought we fought our way into the game and worked for each other and that produced the result. I’m very proud of the boys and the spirit they showed. A victory away from home gives us confidence; I’m glad we were able to get the win.

“We thought they’d come strong and that proved to be the case today. We’ve shown plenty of character during this seven-game unbeaten run and today we just kept on working. There’s no secret to success; you have to work hard and the results will follow”.

Speaking after his first start since the draw against Middlesbrough in late September, the South African midfielder said that he was delighted with his return to fold:

“It was my first start for a while – my first 90 minutes of the season – so I feel very happy. I felt fit on the pitch and I’m glad I could be so influential today – especially for the third goal. I’m happy with my performance”.

With the games coming thick and fast and Brentford riding the wave of a seven-game unbeaten run in the Sky Bet Championship, Kamohelo confirmed that confidence in the camp is high:

”We’re looking forward to the games ahead. We feel we haven’t reached our full potential yet and we fully believe in each other and what we’re doing. Every game is important for us”.
