“I think we’ve seen that, a clean sheet, a massive three points, and now we can move forward.

“When you’re manager of this football club you can’t lose games on a consistent basis, it can’t become a habit. We are determined to bounce back from the three defeats and that’s the Premier League, there’s no easy fixtures.

“Today was a tricky one for us, Brentford are a really good team. We stayed in the game and in the second half we were a lot better. I’m really pleased with the focus, we know how important the Premier League is for us.

“I only look at the next game and pick the team to win that. Whether the team changes for Tuesday night [against AC Milan] who knows.”

Wilson also expressed his satisfaction with the outcome, emphasizing the significance of obtaining a win following three consecutive league defeats, including a significant 3-1 loss to Brighton.

He said: “It [the win] was massive. The break probably came at a good time for us, we were on a run of defeats and needed back to winning ways.

“The break got us to regroup, we worked on a few things we had to improve. We had to win ugly and three points were the most important today.”
