The Bees have not won a home Premier League game since the opening day of the season

Thomas Frank has urged his Brentford side to show “bravery” as they bid to get back on track at the Community Stadium against Everton on Sunday.

The Bees have not won a home Premier League game since the opening day of the season against Arsenal and stopped the rot of four straight losses by salvaging a point at Newcastle last week.

But Frank insists he is unconcerned by his side’s recent plight and believes they are in good shape to recover their momentum and turn their new home into a “fortress”.

Frank said: “It is extremely important that we are brave. I think we need to be able to have a mindset of taking risks.

“If you don’t take risks it’s impossible. You need to be brave and take risks if you want to have a chance of winning football matches.”

Frank is likely to be boosted by the returns of Yoane Wissa and Mathias Jensen to his squad after the duo shrugged off ankle and Covid issues respectively.

However, Frank revealed defender Mathias Jorgensen is likely to be sidelined once again with an unspecified leg injury.

Frank says he is unconcerned by his side’s plight at home, especially in light of their continued away heroics, but admitted a victory on Sunday would be a further significant step in their top-flight campaign.

“I would prefer our home form to be a fortress and 100 per cent difficult to play at but I’m not worried,” Frank added.

“I think if you want to achieve something it is extremely important to be able to get points at home and away, and I’m pleased we have been so consistently good away from home.

“In every aspect of football that is the most difficult thing and I think the home form is just around the corner.”
