Brentford head coach Dean Smith was delighted with the work the Bees squad put in over the course of their training camp in France.
The west London club have been in Divonne-Les-Bains preparing for the new season with double and triple sessions.
And Smith knew it was a tough week for his side but he has been thrilled with the progress made.
“On the whole it has been a fantastic week,” he told the club's official website. “The players’ attitudes have been spot on and that was shown by the game today as well.
“When the players are tired you see if they are making the right decisions with what you have been doing in training.
“They are starting to take on board the ideas that we are giving them. They seem a happy but tired group.
“They will be looking forward to getting back to their families but I have been really pleased with them.
“It is tough for the staff to be away from their families for a week but it is what we are paid to do and we enjoy it.”
The week ended with a 1-1 draw against FC Lausanne-Sport and Smith saw positives from the game and believes his squad are ahead of schedule.
The Brentford boss added: “It was a really good workout for us. We have had a tough week’s training and coming into the match today I was trying to get two 45 minutes out of the lads but four of them had to play longer than we had planned.
“I was really pleased with the first 45 minutes. We moved the ball really well. They are a week away from the start of their season and they played their first-team for it.
“I was really pleased with the first-half and then second-half we probably didn’t move the ball as well.
“I am pleased that we got another run-out. It’s now back to blighty to get ready for Oxford United on Wednesday.
“The aim is to be ready for Sheffield United and we are probably a bit ahead of where I thought we would be to be honest.”
