Brentford boss Thomas Frank admits he’s excited by the prospect of Christian Eriksen’s imminent debut.
The Denmark international, who has signed a six-month deal with Brentford, is expected to play in a behind-closed-doors friendly next week before a potential debut at Arsenal next Saturday.
And, on the evidence of a bore draw which was crying out for someone of Eriksen’s composure and craft, that debut cannot come soon enough.
“It’s very pleasing, not only for the Brentford fans but also for the Palace fans, for everyone in football it’s a big day,” said Bees boss Frank.
“And it will be even crazier when he gets on the pitch and plays. There are a lot of positives to look forward to.
“I think in general I’m pleased we got a point. Today if there should have been a winner it was us.
“It was a big positive to get a clean sheet, but we need to do better on the ball, have more quality in the final third.
“I’m a positive man so I will look at it as a good point. But I’m also eager and want to have more, to do more.
“I like the consistency in the performance. We gave very little away. We need to do more offensively, but I think one day we’ll just be explosive.”
