Brentford head coach Dean Smith does not want to see Kamo Mokotjo to be seen as a player who shines purely away from home.
The South African has performed well in the previous away game at Middlesbrough with illness causing him to miss the game with Millwall, with Romaine Sawyers coming into the side keeping it for the 3-3 draw for Sunderland.
And Smith, who restored Mokotjo to the side on Saturday, does not want to see the general as a player deployed more away from home.
He said: “It's a bit unfair to suggest he's better away from home. He played very well at Middlesbrough and then he was ill for the Millwall game. We got a really good performance against Millwall and it was unfortunate he didn't get into the team for the next game.
“I thought we gave too many soft goals last week and that's nothing against Romaine who has come on and scored again today.
“We looked solid at Middlesbrough and felt we could do with his legs there.”
Mokotjo, along with Ryan Woods and Nico Yennaris/Romaine Sawyers, helped run the midfield and it was that that was the difference between the two sides.
The Brentford head coach added: “We knew it would be a tough midfield battle. They go man for man in midfield and up front.
“You've got to win individual battles. I thought it was an even game and we won it with some well-worked goals.”
