Brentford boss Frank urges players to 'seize the day' ahead of massive season finale

Brentford boss Thomas Frank has urged his players to seize the moment ahead of the Championship's final game of the regular season.

The Bees are playing Barnsley at home and need a better result than West Brom do against QPR, with the Baggies ahead by one-point in second-place.

"For football fans or all football people, but there are moments where you just fall a little bit more in love with the game," Frank said. "Maybe it's just running around playing with your friends when we were kids.

"Maybe it was that World Cup moment, or that Premier League moment. Maybe it was when you saw your favourite club's first game or maybe it was the 50th game where you really fell in love. We love the stories. That's what football's all about also.

"It's like Leeds coming back to the Premier League after 16 years of suffering. I saw a picture this morning of some Leeds fans, a fantastic picture.

"It was a dad, a son and a daughter holding a sign that said 'We'll be back' 16 years ago and then another sign that says 'Now we're back'. Now they're grown up and they've been through so much suffering and pain.

"It's football, we're working so hard, going through so many things to try and be part of special, special moments and we need to realise that just to be able to be in this position is unbelievable, and we need to really see if we can enjoy it in a way."
