Brentford Manager Uwe Rösler pointed to his team’s naivety after they conceded a late goal to draw 1-1 with Scunthorpe United.
The Bees took a first half lead against the Lincolnshire side thanks to a Harry Forrester goal but were pegged back with 13 minutes remaining.
Uwe said the home side were never in the game but his team were unable to “manage” the later stages and ensure they took all three points.
“We have seen a lot of good things today but we have seen the problems we have when we do not kill game off,” said Uwe, speaking after the match.
“We also need to look at how we manage games.
“When I look at the number of times they stopped our attacks with a tactical foul, and got away with it as there were not many yellow cards, compared to us.
“We are very naïve.
“We allow teams to run 30 metres with the ball and cross it in.
“They were in our box six times in 90 minutes.
“We do not kill games off, that, and our naivety, is our problem.
“It’s nothing new.
“At no stage of the game were Scunthorpe in it.
“They kicked it massively long and got one or two more seconds balls in the second half than the first half, but they did not have many chances.”
Uwe said his team do “so many things right” but this was the seventh or eighth game they should have got more from.
He said there was a lack of experience in his ranks that made them susceptible to dropping points.
“I said to the players after the game that this is seventh or eighth time we have sat here like this this season, talking about the same issues,” said Uwe.
“I am happy because we are controlling games home and away.
“We control games, we dominate, we do so many things right.
“But, on the other side we are not learning quickly enough.
“We have a limited financial budget to work with.
“We have to bring players in who can play the way we want.
“We are very happy to get them but that means we can lack experience, we can lack experience in terms of managing games.
“We are happy with the squad we have but at times I would like a bit more experience, a bit more knowledge of the game.
“Today we couldn’t lose the game, lose another two points, if we did the right things.
“But we did what we have done seven or eight times.”
Uwe said his players will learn as they play more games and said the sooner it happened the better it would be for everyone.
“Our talented young squad will get more games,” said the Brentford boss.
“They will get more experience and they will learn.
“They will improve and they are improving every game.
“I am excited about that process and leading it.
“I put demands on the players and it is an unforgiving business.
“I told them the quicker they learn the better it is for their careers and for us.
“When players learn slowly it will affect us and every individual.”
Uwe said he would be bringing a striker in next week to replace Farid El Alagui, who is facing a long layoff with a knee injury.
“A player will be coming in next week,” said the Brentford Manager.
“I do not want to give his name until the paperwork is signed.
“Everything is agreed but the papers are not signed.”
