Mark Warburton insists his Brentford side will keep learning and not rest on their laurels following their first Championship win of the season.
While the Bees deserved all three points following a gutsy performance at Bloomfield Road, the finely-balanced game could easily have swung the way of the hosts.
However, after being unfortunate not to take a share of the spoils at Bournemouth on Saturday, the fine margins worked in Brentford's favour this time.
Bees boss Warburton said: “We came here knowing we had to impose our game on the opposition and dictate the game in our style. You just have to believe in what you're doing. We have learned you can play with our style of football at this level but need to be more clinical.
“We have got to learn from last 15 minutes, however. We were giving the ball away too cheaply and inviting them on to us. But after the frustration of not getting our just rewards on Saturday, you cannot be too harsh.
“We were not sure what to expect, but all credit to Tony Craig and James Tarkowski, who kept out their threat well, as when you give any team at this level time and space they will hurt you.
“It was our toughest away trip of the season as some players will not be getting back until 4am or 5am, and we have to immediately switch our focus to Birmingham on Saturday, so it was a pleasing night.”
