The forward discusses the win over Aberdeen Reserves and the loss to Hibernian Reserves

6 October 2019

Brentford B forward Gustav Mogensen believes the side can take a number of positives away from their four-day trip to Scotland.

Matches with Aberdeen Reserves and Hibernian Reserves saw them pick up a 3-1 win and a 3-2 loss respectively, and the Danish youngster believes the matches will serve the team well in the future.

The first match against the Dons saw the team race into a three-goal lead with Gustav netting twice, before a complete reversal a few days later which saw Hibernian net three times before the Bees pulled two goals back.

Reflecting on the match with Hibernian, Gustav said: “I thought we did alright. We had a tough first half where we conceded three in the first 25 minutes, but I think we showed great character to come back and score two goals to get us back into the game.

“I think there were some mistakes from set pieces, and we could have done better, but it’s a lesson for next time to be more ready for the set pieces.

“It says a lot about the team, to come back to 3-2 after being 3-0 down. All the work we’ve done in pre-season has shown because with good shape we’re able to get back into the game.

“We can take a lot from the two games, particularly the first half in Aberdeen was very good and the second half (vs Hibernian) was also very good so we can take a lot from the two games."
