ANDY Garner says that Brentford’s passing game can get the better of any team in the Championship.

The Brewers first team coach says that he is well aware of the dangers that tomorrow’s visitors to the Pirelli Stadium pose.

He said: “They are a good side and are capable of beating anyone in this division on their day.

“Their movement is very good and they like to get the ball down and play. They don’t stay in their allocated positions. They move all over the pitch which makes it very difficult against them. But we managed to deal with that at their place (and drew 1-1) and we have to be very focussed. We are aware of what they are about that’s for sure.

“With 13 games to go they can still make the play offs and are more than capable of doing that.”

Last season in the game at the Pirelli Stadium the Brewers were 3-1 up at half-time but lost 5-3 as Brentford put in a dominating second half performance.

Garner said: “In the second half we didn’t get near their players - they were fantastic and there wasn’t much we could do about it. It was a major disappointment after being 3-1 up as if you score three you think you are going to win a football match. It was a case of holding our hands up and saying that in the second half we weren’t good enough.”

But Garner hopes that Albion can get the better of the visitors tomorrow and finally record a much-needed home win.

He said: “We need to get a win at home and after the Millwall game. I’m not sure what we have to do here to get a win. We haven’t played brilliantly in some games but you are not telling me that after Millwall we deserved to lose 1-0.

"Against the likes of Millwall and Nottingham Forest we have done enough to have won those games. Other teams have been losing but we haven’t be able to capitalise. You turn Millwall and Nottingham Forest into wins and it puts a different perspective on the league table.”
