Henrik Dalsgaard was pleased to see out a 2-0 win at Burton Albion on Tuesday night. The Danish fullback spoke to iFollow after the game about the match and upcoming challenges.
“We fought well,” said Henrik. “It was a difficult pitch but I thought we did well in the circumstances. It was a well deserved win.”
The Bees got off to a slow start and saw out a tough first half. Henrik felt the team were confident of getting something from the game.
“Obviously they put a lot of men behind the ball, so that makes it difficult for us. We kept going and tried not to let the frustration get to us, and just kept playing our game even though it was difficult.
“I thought we had a lot of chances even in the first half as well. We kept pushing on and finally we got the goal. I think from that point on we just cruised.”
Keeping Burton out for 90 minutes meant a third clean sheet in the last four games, twelfth overall this season. Henrik was pleased to see the team remain in control until the end.
“It’s easy to fall asleep when you attack a lot so it is quite important. We’ll definitely bring that with us for the next game.”
Asked about his physical condition after the game, Henrik said: “I’m feeling good. I’ve had, I don’t want to call it a holiday, but I had a break. So I feel very good, I’m just happy to be back and I’m ready to fight for every point we have left.”
Brentford are still a few points below the top six, looking to pick up some good results on the home stretch of fixtures.
“It’s those small details,” said Henrik. “They are the difference between getting a win or a point. We just need to turn the defeats into at least one point, get a bit more consistency back in the team and go on a good run.”
The Den is the next stop for Dean Smith’s side, a venue that Henrik is looking forward to visiting.
“I’ve never played there, I’ve just heard stories. We need to use the atmosphere positively instead of being intimidated. I’m looking forward to it, so it’s always a good crowd and that’s what you want as a footballer.”
