Derby boss Gary Rowett has been a bit surprised by Brentford's poor start to the season but was quick to point out two areas where he feels they are weak.
The Bees have only won once all season, a 3-0 win at Bolton, and have had a bad habit of not being able to turn domination into goals.
And, coupled with that, they have been prone to conceding soft goals at the back, through minor defensive lapses.
“Brentford don't play up against you, they play in pockets and make it difficult for you to get out. We showed a lack of composure at times,” he said:
“I'm a bit surprised as they're difficult to face at Griffin Park and away from home. It's difficult to stop them playing.
“If you press them high you leave spaces in behind you. We didn't have the athleticism to do it for longer periods.
“For Brentford's it's turning possession into goals and it looked as though we'd limit that tonight but they're a good side.”
And he changed his side's strategy to put more balls into the box as he had noticed the Bees were weak in dealing with the aerial threat.
He added: “We felt that crosses in the box were something that Brentford have not dealt as well with and we felt Jonno could give us that in the box.
“We felt we needed three midfielders centrally. If we'd had a forward there I felt we'd have been too open.
“You have to respect the opposition. Brentford are a good side and pass the ball well. That was the reason behind it. We scored the goal of Jonno being a target and winning the header.”
