Scott Hogan paid tribute to the timing of Lewis Macleod and Romaine Sawyers' passes to him after the 2-0 win at Brighton.
The striker scored both goals, the first after a pass from the Scot and the second after being played in by Brentford captain Harlee Dean, and he could have had more goals but his shooting let him down.
And he revealed the split-second timing that goes on when it comes to being played through after being caught offside a lot.
He said: “It is the art of playing the ball at the right time, it is something special. Today we played the ball at precisely the right time and I’m timing my runs off certain things and I play on the line so a split second too late I am offside, a split second too early they block me off.
“It is all about timings and the boys were perfect today. It proves as I got in a few times. Football is all about awareness and as the way I play is about timing. The timing comes from the passes behind and it did today.”
Hogan added: “The trick is to take half a touch, which is pretty much first time, or one touch. Lewis is one of those players we’ve got who can play unbelievable balls.
“The trigger is they look at me and then it is up to them to play the ball. If the ball is played at the right time then I am rarely offside but I am offside a lot, that’s just the way I play.
“Lewis will find me, I could have five men round me and they would still find the pass. It is all about timings and together it came together and hopefully it will continue for the rest of the season
Hogan was shifting to the wing in order to receive the ball and it provided joy, although he will rarely be seen deep in the Brentford half doing the defensive work because of the threat he poses up front.
He explained: “We defended outstanding today, the two centre halves were incredible. The boys know I won’t drop into space, the boys don’t want me to do that because they know what I can do.
“Part of my game is to be isolated, but that is a part of the game that makes me different to someone else, it makes me a problem.
“If I stay up there I always have the centre backs looking where I am, they don’t want to leave me. If the right back pushes on I will just stand in his place, then they want the right back to come in and it just creates confusion.
“A couple of time we just turn it quickly and I’m in. It is just another part of our attacking arsenal.”
