Newcastle assistant boss Jason Tindall: “Obviously, it wasn’t the result we wanted. We wanted to win the game and set up to win the game.” he added. “But we’ve obviously conceded three goals and we were disappointed with them. We’ll look at those collectively and individually and we’ll need to put them right on the training ground.”
Brentford boss Thomas Frank: “When you’re leading twice, it’s a little bit frustrating that you don’t get three points. That’s the frustration.” he added. “When you score three goals in a Premier League game – home or away or in any game across the world – you need to be able to get three points. [It is] very positive scoring three goals, very positive that we created a lot of dangerous situations and chances to have scored more.”
