BRENTFORD manager Mark Warburton was left to rue his side’s lapse in concentration before the interval in the defeat to Swindon Town.

The Bees chief felt that his side were in control at the County Ground before Louis Thompson ghosted in to steal the ball from Jonathan Douglas to net on the stroke of half-time.

The defeat leaves Brentford still requiring six points to join Wolves in the Championship next term.

Warburton said: “It was frustrating. We gave the goal away just before half-time as we were in charge of the game at the time.

“We paid the price for a poor defensive decision but I thought that we bossed it in the second half.

“We got behind them and got in some good positions but missed our chances and we weren’t good enough on the day.

“There were a lot of positives from our perspective though and some of our play was excellent and I’ve got no complaints.

“We knew Swindon would ask us a lot of questions and were aware of the challenges they would pose. They were feisty, good quality, with good technical players.”
