Outgoing Brentford manager Mark Warburton was pleased to see his side do their talking on the pitch after the Bees secured a 3-1 win over Bournemouth.
Jonathan Douglas gave the west Londoners the lead after 10 minutes only for Danny Pugh to cancel it out.
Alex Pritchard restored the advantage with a long-range free-kick just before half-time, although he can count himself fortunate with the goalkeeping of Artur Boruc, who parried his effort into the net.
And, as Bournemouth attacked, Brentford picked them off on the counter and Chris Long sealed the win in stoppage time.
Warburton said: “It was the perfect end to a difficult week.
“It was a fantastic reaction by a very talented group of players, we had character and commitment, and we were outstanding.
“The whole team did well – all 18 of them involved – and Alex Pritchard was fabulous again – he enjoys those types of games.
Warburton insisted his side would not rest until the end of the season with fans fearful the Bees' promotion hopes have gone after news of the manager's departure.
The Bees boss added: “Bournemouth are a very good team. Eddie Howe and his team have done a great job assembling that squad and we knew the threat they'd pose.
“It would be disrespectful to the players for us not to put everything into the rest of the season. They deserve nothing less.
“We've got 14 games now to be the best we can be and see where we are come May 2.”
