Brentford's leaky defence has become a cause for concern, Ryan Woods has admitted.
The Bees have conceded 10 goals in their last three games and, despite good performances going forward, defensive lapses have meant the west Londoners have picked up just one point in that time.
The midfielder is not happy with the manner of goals conceded and the squad will be working on the training pitch to put things right.
Woods said: “It is a concern and we're all really disappointed with the way we're conceding goals. We're giving them away to be honest and we're not happy with the way that's going for us.
“It's disappointing and it's something happening that is why we're giving the goals away. We'll sit down and have a look at it and put it right as soon as possible.”
Despite Scott Hogan's departure, Brentford have been a threat going forward, scoring 10 goals in four games.
And this gives Woods confidence that, once the Bees resolve their defensive woes, they will be able to go on a winning run.
He added: “On the plus side, we're an attacking threat and, once we learn how to keep the ball out of our own net, we can win games again.”
Brentford showed all four facets of their play in 90 minutes at Reading on Tuesday night. They lacked sharpness in the opening stages and falling behind to a John Swift goal, before dominating the rest of the first half, without taking chances.
The Bees were devastating after the break as they scored twice through Jota and Lasse Vibe in the space of three minutes but then collapsed defensively to go down 3-2 with Dan Williams and Roy Beerens scoring in a short space of time.
Woods admitted: “You could say it summed up our season in a nutshell. After the first 15-20 minutes, I felt we were much the better team towards the end of the first half.
“We scored the two goals in the second half and thoroughly deserved them. Dan has made a mistake for their third but you've seen the world class saves he has made through the season so we can let him have that one today.
“He's been top class for us this season and everyone is allowed a mistake and unfortunately his was at Reading.”
The Bees now have a week off before making the trip to Sheffield Wednesday next Tuesday and the squad will be working to right the wrongs of the past few games ahead of the trip to Hillsborough.
He added: “It'll be a tough game against Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday. We'll be getting on the training ground and do the work we need to do and go there with confidence we can get the three points.”
