Sun 28 February 2021 | 7:38

Brentford manager Thomas Frank says his side have rediscovered their form after they put a three-game losing run behind by winning their last two matches.

Brentford

bounced back to strengthen their automatic promotion push with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over

Stoke

in the Championship.

​​​​

Vitaly Janelt

scored the leveler in the 56th minute after

Jacob Brown

had taken the lead for the visitors after just 27 seconds, but

Ivan Toney

's 25th goal of the season secured the Bees a second successive victory.

“In all seasons but especially this one, every team will go through a dip at a certain stage, but it’s the ones that can handle it best that will be successful,”

Frank said

.

“In the second half we went from level five to level nine. We were quicker moving forward, we took the initiative, and we had a much bigger mentality and attitude.”

Frank hailed the club’s coaching staff for Toney becoming the third striker in successive seasons to hit the 25-goal mark.

“Ivan wants to be better every day and he knows instinctively what he wants to do in those situations. It is down to him but also the work behind the scenes,”

he said

.

Defeats for

Swansea

and

Watford

moved the second-placed Bees three points clear of the chasing pack.
