CRAIG Woodman has told his Brentford team-mates to have more confidence in themselves, following this afternoon's FA Cup defeat to Wrexham.
It was hard to tell who were the League One side and who were the Conference outfit at Griffin Park as Wrexham knocked the ball around without fear, while Brentford misplaced passes and lacked cohesion.
And left-back Woodman reckons heads went down too quickly after Wrexham took a first half lead, which they held until the final whistle to win 1-0.
He said: “We seem to lose all our confidendce when we go a goal down, we need to find the belief in ourselves to keep going instead.
“To be fair, we have been defending quite well recently, but we can't keep a clean sheet every game, and we're not scoring enough at the other end.
“To have a midfielder in Sam Saunders as the top scorer is a little bit wrong. I don't think we've scored more than two goals in a game since August.
“We let ourselves down in the first half and didn't get on the ball enough, and in the second half we didn't take our chances – we squandered four or five good ones.”
