Bees boss Uwe Rosler was delighted with the way his side worked together for 95 minutes to limit a lively Coventry side.
Goals from Clayton Donaldson and Martin Taylor earned Brentford a 2-1 win at Sixfields to get their promotion push back on track.
“We came here and did a very good job against a good footballing side,” Rosler said.
“In the first 15 or 20 minutes they looked very strong but then we started to defend from the top which was always the plan.”
He hailed Clayton Donaldson and Will Grigg as pivotal to the game plan as Brentford looked to break quickly on the counter attack.
“I don’t really want to single anyone out because it was a great team performance, but they made it difficult for Coventry to get their game going,” Rosler said.
“They did a good job for the team and slowly we limited them to very little as the game went on. I was moist pleased that at 2-0 we didn’t settle for that but went for the third and fourth.”
Rosler revealed he had been critical of one or two Brentford players internally and was delighted with their response.
He also revealed midfielder Jonathan Douglas will be available for selection for Saturday’s clash with Rotherham and that striker Paul Hayes looks set to go out on loan.
