Thomas Frank has provided injury updates on three Brentford players following a narrow defeat to Norwich City at Carrow Road.

Kamohelo Mokotjo was lost to an ankle injury after less than half an hour before Emi Buendia’s strike gave the Canaries the lead on 34 minutes.

The Bees’ afternoon could’ve gone from bad to worse, but penalty heroics from Daniel Bentley denied Jordan Rhodes on the stroke of half time.

Although arguably Brentford’s best scoring opportunity fell to the Championship’s leading scorer Neal Maupay in the second half, the off-balance striker smashed the crossbar.

While it’s too early to understand the timeline of Mokotjo’s return, Frank has provided the latest news on three players – Julian Jeanvier, Marcus Forss, and Rico Henry.

He said: “Marcus? Unfortunately, it'll be maybe a month before he's back. He has an issue with his back.

“Julian? We'll have an update this coming week. I doubt he's ready for Saturday [against Millwall] but hopefully he'll join full training soon.

“Rico Henry got his first 45 minutes against Southampton, he did well. His potential is to be one of the best left full backs in the division.”

Moses Odubajo, who recently played his first full 90 minutes in more than two years, is still some way from a full return to the starting 11.

He travelled with the squad to east Anglia but was not involved as Frank opted to use Josh McEachran, Lewis Macleod, and Said Benrahma.

When asked about Odubajo, the 45-year-old said: “Moses has played his first 90 minutes in two and a half years on Wednesday.

“For me, it's about getting that fitness and continually, consistently having good training [sessions] with enough high intensity and good action in his games.

“He's so powerful and so quick, he's a top player, but he just needs to get back into top fitness.”

Frank also spoke of his frustration losing Mokotjo to injury, a key player who impressed in Brentford’s defeat to promotion fronturnners Leeds United.

However, he appeared relaxed with the situation given the options at his disposal.

He added: “The good thing is that we have two good number sixes and you can see we've been splitting the minutes between Josh McEachran and Kamohelo Mokotjo, but the more good players we have to choose from the better.

“I'd say Josh McEachran played a good game [against Norwich].”
