Lasse Vibe and Jota both scored twice as Brentford outclassed Derby County, winning by four goals to nil, to put the final nail in the coffin of their play-off hopes.
The Bees toyed with the Rams in the first half and the only complaint Dean Smith could have with the display was they weren't further ahead than Lasse Vibe's strike after a fine team move.
The visitors had a strong start in the second half but, once Jota made it 2-0 with 20 minutes remaining the hosts took command. The Spaniard's shot from the edge of the area leaving Scott Carson rooted to the spot.
Lasse Vibe made it 3-0 with eight minutes on the clock after fine work from Romaine Sawyers. Once again, the Rams stopper was motionless.
And, in the last minute of normal time, Jota made it 4-0 to complete a convincing win that lifts them to 59 points.
Below are how GetWestLondon rated the Bees players on Good Friday afternoon.
Daniel Bentley – A fine stop to deny David Nugent giving Derby an undeserved first half lead. 7
Josh Clarke – A thorn in the side of the Rams going forward. Did his defensive duties well. 8
Harlee Dean – A performance that the great Franz Beckenbauer would be proud off. Immense once again. 8
Yoann Barbet – Compliments the Brentford captain well. The Frenchman produced a string of fine passes. 7
Rico Henry – A joy to watch going forward and defensively. Linked up perfectly with Sergi Canos. 8
Ryan Woods – Took a blow to the head in the second half after 45 minutes of sheer dominance. 8
Nico Yennaris – Another strong performance. A good range of passing to keep Derby on the back foot. 8
Romaine Sawyers – Has added consistency to his game which is brilliant to see. Produced a neat range of passes. 7
Jota – Surprised everyone when he aimed at the near post to score the second goal and wrap up the three points. The Spaniard was back to his usual levels of excellence. 9
Lasse Vibe – You can't argue with a two-goal return, which he earned with his hard work. 8
Sergi Canos – Chris Baird will be having nightmares about the Spaniard. A fine performance. 8
Florian Jozefzoon (for Sergi Canos 71) – Caused problems with his pace down the right flank. 7
Alan McCormack (for Ryan Woods 71) – Didn't miss a beat when he came on and helped secure the three points. 6
Konstantin Kerschbaumer (for Romaine Sawyers 84) – Too little time to make a meaningful impact. N/A
