SAIDO Berahino will take the headlines – but coach Alan Kernaghan saluted Brentford's back four following their 2-0 win over Exeter tonight.
The Bees have kept three clean sheets in four games since the former Manchester City centre-back was officially brought in as defensive coach last month.
And while the talk of the terraces will be Berahino's brace against the Grecians, Kernaghan (pictured) believes the foundations for the win were built from the back.
He said: “The clean sheet is a big positive as they give the whole team confidence, and we defended well as a team for the whole 90 minutes.
“But it's not just the back four. They have got a very good keeper behind them, whether it's Simon (Moore) or Richard (Lee) playing, as well as some good midfield players in front of them helping them remain solid.
“However, we were passing and standing still a little bit towards the end and nearly got ourselves into trouble because of it, so there is still work to do.”
