Mark Warburton: Play-off semi-final only at ‘half time’ after Brentford fall to late first-leg defeat

first_imgBrentford manager Mark Warburton issued a reminder to his side that their play-off semi-final is only at ‘half time’ after falling to a late 2-1 defeat to Middlesbrough in the first-leg at Griffin Park.Jelle Vossen had put Boro ahead but Andre Gray’s opportunist strike levelled proceedings, before Fernando Amorebieta’s deflected strike in injury time grabbed the visitors a slender advantage for the return leg at the Riverside.The Brentford players cut dejected figures at the final whistle whilst the Boro players celebrated, and Warburton hopes to capitalise on any complacency from their opponents in the second leg.“It’s 2-1 at half time. It was frustrating to lose a late goal in that nature but I was happy with the performance,” said the Bees’ boss.“There’s a lot of celebrating going on. Everyone of them without doubt is celebrating – they think they’ve won the whole tie. Let’s see what happens next week.”Warburton, who will leave his post regardless of their destiny, admitted he was left with mixed emotions on what was his final Griffin Park appearance as Brentford manager.He said: “It’s difficult because Griffin Park under the lights is a great memory.“It’s a fantastic club and it was a privilege to be a manager here. It’s just a shame we couldn’t finish on a high.”last_img read more
