Brentford manager Thomas Frank has told BBC Live’s coverage that Leeds United have a “very good team” and play with “great intensity” after the two sides played out a 0-0 draw at Elland Road – with both sides having chances to win.

Leeds came into the game with some momentum. A decent performance against Aston Villa was followed by a 5-2 win over Championship side Cardiff City on Wednesday. Brentford, meanwhile, are pushing for European qualification.

Willy Gnonto, Rodrigo and Brenden Aaronson all had shots on target during the second half. Leeds were the better side in the second half, while Brentford probably shaded the first 45. At the end of the day, probably a fair result.

Bees manager Frank spoke about Leeds after the match on Sunday afternoon, which sees Leeds sit just a point above the relegation zone. He says that Leeds are a “very good team” and play on the front foot under manager Marsch.

“Need to give credit to Leeds. They have a very good team. Play with great intensity and on the front foot,” Brentford manager Frank said about Leeds, as per BBC Live’s coverage of the 0-0 draw at Elland Road on Sunday afternoon.

While Leeds could have done with a winner, it is still a positive step in the right direction. Although Brentford had chances, you would say that it was a fair result. What it did show, is that Leeds kept a clean sheet and defended well.

Max Wober’s arrival at Leeds has certainly helped – starring against the Bees. Marsch heaped praise on Wober after the game and the Austria star looks a bargain. If Rodrigo’s shot sneaked in, it would have been a monumental result.

But even so, given Brentford’s form this season, it is a good result for Leeds. Especially given the reverse fixture earlier this season was a 5-2 loss. Focus switches to the FA Cup this weekend, facing Boreham Wood or Accrington Stanley.
