Simon Moore said he was happy to start the 2012/13 npower League One season with a clean sheet.
The Bees kicked off their league campaign with a 0-0 draw with Bury at Gigg Lane.
Simon said it was not a bad point and Brentford now had to look to win home games against Yeovil Town on Tuesday and Crewe Alexandra next Saturday.
“This is not a bad point at all,” said the goalkeeper, speaking to Bees Player after the draw.
“It was a tough first game of the season, coming away to Bury, and it was an even game.
“A point was probably fair.
”We are happy to keep a clean sheet.
“We would have liked three points but we now have Yeovil on Tuesday and Crewe next Saturday so we have to look to take three points from each of them.”
Simon had a largely quiet afternoon at Gigg Lane and praised the performance of his defenders.
The Bees lined up with three central defenders against Bury and Simon said the work on the back line in pre-season had gone well.
“I didn’t have a lot to do,” said the stopper.
“There was a last ditch tackle at the end and I turned one round the post with my wrist when I spread myself.
“But it was quiet and that is testament to the boys in front of me.
“The building of the defence has gone well.
“We’ve added players through the summer and this is the first time everyone has played.
“To keep a clean sheet was great.
“A clean sheet is like scoring a goal for me.
“We’ll push on Tuesday and try to get three points.”
Leon Legge also spoke to Bees Player after the game and said Brentford had picked up a “good point”.
“It was tough, the sun came out and it was pretty hot,” he said.
“It was a good point.
“You want to start the season with a win but we came away with a point that was well deserved.
“As a defender you always want a clean sheet.
“It’s a good start for us.”
Leon said he though playing three central defenders worked well.
“The gaffer [Uwe Rösler] wanted to try it out and it looks solid,” he said.
“It also gives us more width.
“We worked on it in training, it looks like a good formation and will make us different to other teams in the league.”
The defender added Brentford now had to make sure they beat Yeovil on Tuesday to set up Griffin Park as a tough place for visiting teams.
“Every team wants to pick up their points at home, create a fortress,” added Leon.
“If we pick up three points on Tuesday it gives us four from six and that’s not a bad start.”
