While it wasn't a classic, that didn't make the three points any less vital.

Thanks for your support and well done to the team. It was by no means a classic but the players got the job done. Onto the City Ground on Tuesday evening where your support will be crucial once again if we are to get another positive result to keep us in the hunt. #BrentfordFC— mark devlin (@markdevlin7) April 7, 2018

It was a record-breaking day for Daniel Bentley too, although John Egan wanted his share of the praise.
No love for us defenders nah? 🤣🤣🤣— John Egan (@JohnEgan92) April 7, 2018
The day had begun on a sad note as both clubs paid tribute to a footballing icon who died earlier this week.
