Dean Smith played down the significance of Brentford dropping 16 points from winning positions, preferring instead to focus on the fact they have lost once in 11 games.
The Bees dropped points against a Burton side who, until going 1-0 down to Florian Jozefzoon's free kick, had shown little desire to win the game.
However, the west Londoners presented Ben Turner with a chance to equalise and the defender, who was banned for five games for racially abusing Nico Yennaris last season, headed home with aplomb.
Had the Bees held onto all of their leads they would be top of the league, having played a game more than Wolves but Smith felt other factors have to be considered.
When asked about the statistic after the game, he replied: “Not really. It's one defeat in 11 games and to go one defeat in 11 games is one thing to do.
“It was a bit like Saturday and everyone talks about Neal Maupay's miss but you don't talk about the defending for their goals which is just as important.
“For me, losing from winning positions – a team will come here and try and frustrate us and when we do take the lead and it opens them up to have a go at you.”
