Brentford striker Maupay: Teams like Millwall are why we have been struggling


Brentford striker Neal Maupay, who opened up Millwall with two sublime assists on Saturday, said his team-mates are always prepared for a tough challenge against the South Londoners.

The Frenchman set up Sergi Canos and Ollie Watkins as the Bees won 2-0 at Griffin Park to end a three-match losing streak.

“We are different teams,” said Maupay. “They are big, strong, play long balls and us, we try to move the ball with technical players, so we knew it was going to be a really, really tough game for us.

“I think there’s a lot of teams, like Millwall, that try to play long balls and compete for the second ball and that’s why we’ve been struggling, because we’re a technical team.”
