Brentford made it three wins out of four as they claimed a 3-2 victory at Nottingham Forest.

The Bees taught their hosts how to play counter attacking football with all three goals coming on the break.

Lasse Vibe gave the Bees an early lead as the visitors countered from a Forest corner.

The Dane had his second after a delicious 60-yard run from Sergi Canos, who laid the ball into the striker.

He turned provider as he played Jota in to put the Bees 3-0 up and, although Ben Brereton and Zach Clough pulled goals back late on, the Bees picked up another victory on the road.

Below is how the Brentford players rated.

Daniel Bentley 7: The Bees goalkeeper was called into action on a number of occasions and he made a double save from Ben Osborn and Jamie Ward. It was a shame his clean sheet was sullied in the closing stages.

Maxime Colin 7: Did what he needed to do in defence, dealing with the dangerous and roaming Hildeberto Pereira, and helped the Bees push forward.

Harlee Dean 6: A captain's performance from the Brentford skipper. He marshalled the defence well until the final 10 minutes when the Bees went to sleep,feeling the game to be won.

John Egan 6: Made an excellent block to prevent a shot coming in and also nicked the ball off Britt Assombalonga's toes when the striker was looking to shoot.

Rico Henry 7: Struggled against Pereira early on but eventually got the measure of the Forest man and produced some good tackles and set up some Brentford counter attacks.

Man of the match: Nico Yennaris

Nico Yennaris 9: The Brentford midfielder covered every blade of grass and made some crucial interceptions to prevent the hosts from breaking down the door that was the Bees' defence.

Ryan Woods 7: A typical Ryan Woods performance as he did everything he needed to do with the minimum of fuss.

Romaine Sawyers 7: A delightful through ball to Sergi Canos set up a fine Brentford attack and he worked hard defensively.

Jota 9: Set up Lasse Vibe for the opening goal and caused the home defence all sorts of problems with his pace and skill with his left foot. Took his goal with typical Jota precision. His performance earned applause from the home fans.

Jota and Nico Yennaris celebrate

Lasse Vibe 9: Three chances, two goals plus an assist. You can't ask for much more than that from the Brentford striker.

Sergi Canos 9: Some magical pieces of skill from the Spaniard and his assist for the second goal was a joy to behold.


Florian Jozefzoon (for Lasse Vibe 75) 6: Not much time to make an impact with the three points wrapped up. He did manage to irritate Nottingham Forest boss Gary Brazil.

Justin Shaibu (for Jota 75) 6: Not much time to make an impact with the game won and Smith preserving his key men for Saturday's game with Huddersfield.

Reece Cole (for Nico Yennaris) N/A: Dean Smith elected to give Cole his debut in the closing stages.
