Brentford picked up only their fifth point on the road as they recorded a 0-0 draw at Derby.
Both sides had chances to win the contest but the Bees were denied a penalty when Romaine Sawyers appeared to be fouled in the box.
Tom Ince came closest for the Rams as he failed to turn home from six yards but the former Blackpool man was the only player keen to shoot from the hosts.
Both sides, combined, had scored six first half goals, with the Bees having five of those and it was no surprise that chances were at a premium in the opening 45 minutes.
Brentford were weak in the air at Newcastle on Saturday but they were much better at the iPro Stadium.
Derby chances were limited in the opening stages but the closest the visitors came to opening the scoring came when John Egan's header was tipped around the post by Rams goalkeeper Scott Carson.
The hosts started to peg Brentford back with Dan Bentley making a good save from Tom Ince's dipping effort.
Derby were the stronger side after the break and the visitors were pegged back and slow when they did have the ball, which invited further pressure.
When they did break, Brentford showed their danger with Romaine Sawyers seeing his effort blocked and Scott Hogan hitting the side netting.
The key moment came when Hogan played Sawyers through midway through the second half. The Bees forward appeared to be brought down but referee Scott Duncan refused to blow the whistle and point to the spot.
Derby's best chance came after an error from Maxime Colin and a ball whipped across the six yard box was turned wide by Ince.
