Mark Warburton believes the chance to stay at home for the final games of the season will benefit Brentford in the final battle for a play-off spot.
The Bees, who are three points off the top six, have two home games left against Bolton and Wigan and their final away game is a short trip along the M4 to Reading, which is arguably an easier game to travel to than Millwall and Charlton.
And Warburton hopes that being able to spend time at home will have it’s advantages, although some players might be able to relax more in a hotel.
He said: “Some players have young children and sometimes it can be better being in a hotel and having 11 hours kip.
“The hotels are good and the food is good and they can just relax. Some players will disagree but I prefer to be at home.”
The form at Griffin Park though has been patchy in recent weeks with 2-2 draws against Millwall and Nottingham Forest and a 2-1 defeat to Cardiff.
Brentford have struggled to stick the ball in the back of the net from inside the penalty area recently and scruffy goals could make the difference at the business end of the season.
Warburton added: We dominated against Cardiff. We had 74 per cent against Forest. The random luck has just got to fall our way.
“We’ve got to be more clinical but we expose our defenders. We push our full backs forward. I felt we got the balance right at Derby.
“It’s an attacking outlook from us. That’s the price you pay. Our centre halves are exposed to two v threes and three v threes.
“At Derby, Dougie’s effort hits the guy on the line. At Sheffield Wednesday we get the block and it falls to their player.
“Maybe it hasn’t fallen our way these few weeks. Up until Cardiff it was a bit of a fortress. I’m more concerned by Millwall which wasn’t the best performance.
“I’m more concerned by the performance but, at this stage, I’d take playing badly and winning 1-0. If we can get to 77, 80 points that is a fantastic season.”
