Mark Warburton admitted it was a hard earned point for his Brentford side at Walsall this afternoon.
The Bees dropped points for the first time under Warburton's reign at the Banks's Stadium when they let in Craig Westcarr for an equaliser a minute before the break, following Clayton Donaldson's opener.
Although Brentford failed to equal a club record nine wins in a row, they kept their unbeaten record, which now stretches to 15 league games, in tact.
And manager Warburton, although happy with a point from arguably his toughest test so far, was still disappointed his side threw away a winning position.
He said: “It was a tough game today. They're a good team and move the ball well. It was a good game of football and a well earned point.
“They're not sixth in the table for no reason, we knew they would be a threat, and defensively it was a very good performance in the second half.
“We're never happy to drop two points, but they are a dangerous side. We don't ever set out just to not lose, that would be a negative outlook. We go out to win every game, attacking teams and playing at a high tempo suits our style
“Everybody talks about the run but we like to take it one game at a time and do the best we can in each game.”
