RICHARD Lee has hinted that Brentford are suffering a mental block playing at home.
The Bees haven't won at Griffin Park since August, and have taken just two points from the last six games on home soil.
Boss Uwe Rosler insists he's been forced to play with a lone striker due to the absence of the injured Gary Alexander .
But while accepting the formation hasn't helped, keeper Lee admits the psychological barrier could be to blame for their dismal home record.
He said: “It's got to the point where it's a worry. After one or two games you might let it slide by but it's six without a win now. It's not good and it's something we need to put right.
“I don't how much of it is formations or how much of it is in the head. We're doing it away from home and creating chances.
“It's a natural thing that when you're winning somewhere you gather momentum, but now the opposite is true.
“We need to break the cycle however we do it. If it is going to become a monkey on our backs we need to get it off sharpish.”
Brentford's miserable run at home continued as they slumped to defeat against Stevenage on Tuesday night.
The Bees managed just one effort on target as the visitors nicked the points thanks to Chris Beardsley's second-half winner.
Lee added: “We're frustrated and disappointed because it's another home game gone by without getting a point.
“It's all good and well having all of the ball but we need to create more chances. It's pointless if we're not penetrating enough. We've controlled the game for large parts without really threatening.
“We've got one of the best away records in the division, so it's frustrating. But hopefully we can get a win tomorrow because if we get our home form right we won't be a million miles away.”
