Thomas Frank urges Brentford to be brave to improve home form

Thomas Frank has urged his Brentford side to show “bravery” as they bid against Everton to get back on track at the Community Stadium on Sunday.

That twenty has not won a home Premier League game since the opening day of the season against Arsenal, and saved a point at Newcastle last week to stem the rot of four straight defeats.

But Frank insists he is unconcerned with his side’s recent plight and believes they are in good shape to recover their momentum and turn their new home into a “fort”.

Frank said: “It’s extremely important that we be brave. I think we should be able to have a risk-taking mindset.

“It’s impossible if you don’t take risks. If you want a chance to win a football match then you need to be brave and take risks.

Frank is likely to get a boost from the return of Yoann Visas and Mathias Jensen to their squad, as both overcome ankle and covid issues respectively.

However, Frank revealed that defender Mathias Jorgensen is likely to be sidelined once again with an unspecified leg injury.

Frank says he is unconvinced of his side’s plight at home, especially in light of their continued away heroics, but acknowledged Sunday’s victory will be another important step in their top-flight campaign.

“I would prefer my home form to be a fortress and it will be difficult to play 100 percent, but I’m not worried,” said Frank.

“I think it’s extremely important to be able to score points at home and away if you want to achieve something, and I’m glad we’ve been so consistently good at home.

“It’s the toughest thing in every aspect of football and I think home form is very close.”
