Brentford B forward Gustav Mogensen says it’s been a positive month for the side having completed a trip to Spain as well as claim wins over Celtic reserves and AFC Wimbledon.
The Bees began November with a 4-0 win over Albacete Under-19s before they were narrowly beaten in an entertaining affair against FC Cartagena which finished 3-2.
Reflecting on the trip to Spain, Gustav feels it was a worthwhile tour. He explained: “I think the trip was very crucial for the team, we came together as a group and we saw that in the games. I think we played really well in both games.
“I think we outplayed them (Albacete) throughout the whole game, they didn’t really have one chance at all, and we made a lot of good attacks.
“FC Cartagena was a different challenge compared to the first game in Spain. It was a lot harder for us as a group and they were a very good team with some good players. I think we did decent enough.”
There was also international action for the Dane in November as well as the two goals in Spain, but the youngster believes he’s improved his link up play a great deal in recent weeks and understands the importance of his role at the top end of the pitch.
He continued: “I think it’s been a good month, I’ve been away with the national team, scored some goals and trained with the first team.
“I’m starting to enjoy it a lot (holding the ball up) and I’ve improved on it over the last month. It’s important in our style of play that I can link the ball. I’m starting to really like it and I’m getting better at it. I have to set up the other players.”
On the wins over Celtic and the AFC Wimbledon, Gustav believes they were deserved victories against two tough opponents.
“They (Celtic) were a really good team and it was good to get out with a win. You know in Scotland the weather isn’t too good, but you have to adapt and change things if you need to.
“We played really well (against AFC Wimbledon,) they didn’t have too many chances and we had a few good attacks and had the ball a lot of the second half and they were great goals from Ali (Coote) and Jaden (Brissett.) We were on our toes the whole game and the quality on the ball was brilliant.”
