Who needs Scott Hogan?
Brentford clearly don't as they put Aston Villa to the sword to record their first ever win over the Villans.
Lasse Vibe, the man now tipped to lead the line after Hogan's move to Steve Bruce's side going through, scored twice, either side of a Nico Yennaris strike.
And it lifted the mood at Griffin Park that was grim with no replacement for Hogan coming through the door in west London.
That mood had seeped onto the pitch in the opening 15 minutes but, once Brentford had ridden the early storm, the home side started to take control.
And they had a thoroughly deserved lead on 25 minutes when Yennaris fed Vibe and he rounded Sam Johnstone to open the scoring.
It was 2-0 on 38 minutes when Jota found space on the right flank and drilled a cross to Yennaris to bundle home.
Brentford were playing some champagne football and the Spaniard ran through the Villa defence but was cruelly denied a goal of the season contender by the crossbar.
That continued in the second half with the Bees passing the ball around that left the visiting midfield increasingly dizzy.
And, on 65 minutes, Josh McEachran fed Vibe and he made the game safe to wrap up a well deserved three points.
