Mark Warburton praised his Brentford troops for learning their lessons quickly during last night's comeback win at Blackburn Rovers.
The Bees were on the back foot for most of the first half, falling behind to an early Rudi Gestede strike before conceding again in injury time, barely a minute after they had pulled level through Chris Long.
But it was a different Brentford side who came out for the second half, equalising through a Jota stunner before grabbing all three points with sub Andre Gray's late winner.
Bees boss Warburton said: “It's a tough place to come, and we were well aware that Blackburn had been on a good run of form. Had we lost that game tonight Blackburn would have been very tight on us, but that win puts us 11 points clear of them.
“We made some individual errors and were frustrated and annoyed at half time, but it was a fantastic response in the second half. We looked dangerous, moved the ball well and coped better with their physicality.
“I can't emphasise enough how hungry and determined this group are. They have showed their character time and time again in terms of late goals.
“Conceding just before half time was a blow, and many teams would have buckled under that, but the beauty of it is we learned the lessons from the first half and were worthy winners in the end.”
