Ryan Woods felt Brentford's fantastic comeback win at Burton appeared to be the moral of the Bees' season.
The west Londoners shipped three goals in the space of 20 minutes in the first half to trail 3-1 at the break. Sergi Canos had given the visitors the lead before Marvin Sordell's brace and Cauley Woodrow's free kick put the Brewers in command.
It has been a familiar story for the Bees this season as they go from the sublime to the ridiculous, seemingly at the drop of a hat.
Woods said: “It seems the moral of our story at the moment. We seem to be making things really hard for ourselves, either at the end or in the first half like Saturday.
“We were in control for the first 15-20 minutes but we gave two very sloppy corner kicks away.
“We've conceded two very poor goals in everyone's opinion and managed to turn it around in the second half.”
Dean Smith warned his side at half-time they'd be in all of next weekend if they didn't sort out their problems and Woods admitted the dressing room was angry at half time.
He added: “I think there was anger given the way we were controlling the football, although we weren't hurting them.
“We weren't very pleased. It was the least we could do for the fans, gaffer and the staff and for ourselves to come out and put things right.
“We were superb in the second half and if we played like that against any team, we'd score three or four and that's how good we can be and we need to do it more often.
“We were dreading going into the break on the first half as it's never good to end anything on a defeat so that's another reason to turn things around. We can go into the break with a smile on our face.”
