Brentford FC Head Coach Dean Smith said he got "an awful lot" out of his team's 3-2 win over Shrewsbury Town this afternoon. The Bees continued their pre-season friendly schedule with a 3-2 win as Emiliano Marcondes Camargo Hansen grabbed the winner inside the final ten minutes. The Bees had taken the lead three times on the afternoon and while Shrewsbury pegged them back twice, they could not respond to Emiliano’s goal.
Marcus Forss scored Brentford’s first early on but that lead lasted seconds as Fejiri Okenabirhie equalised. An own goal from Aristote Nsiala put Brentford ahead again and the visitors took that lead in to the break. But Shrewsbury responded again and equalised for a second time when Aaron Amandi-Holloway headed in a corner only for Emiliano to win it late on.
Dean, speaking after the match, said six players getting 90 minutes was useful and the game was a good test. He said his team produced a good performance and used the ball well on a hot day. See his full reaction below.
