IRISHMAN Adam Rooney was left to look back on what might have been at Griffin Park as the Robins surrendered a first half lead.
Town went ahead through Simon Ferry’s second goal in as many games before late strikes from Sam Saunders and Clayton Donaldson sealed the win for the hosts.
Rooney was restored to the starting line-up and offered his views to the official website shortly after full-time in West London.
He said: “We went in front and then had a goal disallowed as well as a few other chances. We are disappointed, of course we are, but we have to look to the next nine games now.
“We had control of the game for large periods in the first half but when Brentford had their spell of possession early in the second half we coped with it quite well. Then they got the penalty and the atmosphere changed in the whole stadium and that gave them a massive lift.”
The Robins are without a game this weekend as the League One clash with Yeovil Town now takes place next Tuesday evening and will be televised on Sky Sports.
Rooney added: “There are massive games coming up now and we have to stick together. We have had a few breaks this year in terms of free weekends but have more time in training before the Yeovil game next Tuesday.
“Personally I would have liked the change to get back out there this weekend to get straight back into it and put things right.”
