UWE Rosler hailed Brentford's spirit after his 10 men held on for a fourth away win on the spin at Oldham on Saturday.
Jonathan Douglas gave the Bees a 1-0 lead at half-time before Miguel Llera got his marching orders just after the hour mark.
But substitute Myles Weston wrapped up victory on 73 minutes to record an impressive victory at Boundary Park.
Rosler said: “It was a great team performance from all the lads.
“They showed a fantastic attitude and work rate to defend our lead when we went down to 10 men.
“We kept our shape and the lads were heroic to play the way we did with one man less.”
