Harlee Dean paid tribute to Brentford's front three after their demolition job of Nottingham Forest.
And Dean admitted the skill of the frontmen makes his job as a defender easy.
He said: “The pace of the two boys, Sergi and Jota, and Lasse up top was frightening. It's not only fast but with quality and they couldn't deal with it.
“Sergi carried the ball 50 yards. Jota's carried the ball 40 yards and scored. Lasse's finished again. It makes our job easy.
“When we went 3-0 up, we should have been more savvy and been a bit better. They threw everything at us with the subs.
“We're not going to be disappointed with a win away from home. We know we can be better and we're disappointed in ourselves with a 3-2 win at Nottingham Forest – it shows how far we've come.”
On the late collapse, Dean explained: “It's just disappointing to concede the late goals and, as the gaffer said, take the gloss of a good performance.
“I think the first, Bents spilled the first shot and they reacted first and the second one was individual errors.
“They're things we'll learn from and cut them out but, aside from that, we were one step, two steps ahead of them physically and mentally. We dominated and it was an easy game to play in.”
Dean knows that the additions of Jota and Canos have given Brentford a new dimension; pace.
He added: “It's a different formation. We've got wide players now. We were playing the same formation but didn't have out and out wide players and pace in the team and now we have.
“We've got ball players all over the pitch from goalkeeper to striker. We play through the lines and play good football.
“John Egan and Woodsy were a different gear on the ball. Everyone played their part. It was an enjoyable game to be involved in after being out for two games.”
Dean has used his suspension to good effect by putting in some work on the training ground that he wouldn't necessarily have time for.
He said: “I drove down to Ipswich on Saturday. I've been working really hard. It gives you time to do other stuff you can't do whilst you're playing.
“It's frustrating to miss the games but I've done a lot of hard work with Tom Perryman and Chris Haslam and feel I've added to the physical side.
“It's sometimes nice to step out, have a look and reassess and then get back on the pitch and do it.”
