Brentford defence must go back to basics

Brentford's off-the-ball industry and defensive organisation have slipped in recent weeks, costing them goals.

On Friday, Thomas Frank wants to see an improvement against high-flying Brighton & Hove Albion.

Brentford's meticulous planning helped them handle set-pieces last season.

Bruno Guimaraes eluded attention from a far-post overload at a short corner in the crushing defeat at St James' Park.

William Saliba scored a header in their previous home encounter, a 3-0 loss against Arsenal.

They failed to shut down the crosser against Fulham earlier in the season, and Aleksandar Mitrovic scored a late header to win 3-2.
