Good things come to those who wait, and that was certainly the case on Wednesday night as Neal Maupay struck in injury-time to defeat Aston Villa at Griffin Park. The Frenchman's 21st of the season in all competitions sent The Bees fans home delirious and social media into over-drive. Here's the best of the reaction to Wednesday's win.

Neal's late-winner certainly provoked some wild celebrations.

Not for the first time this season, Neal came in for plenty of plaudits.

That was some goal to win it. Good strength on ball and top finish. Love the way @nealmaupay18 fights for the ball, not just a top poacher.— Andy (@burkyboy01) February 13, 2019
With Rico Henry and Henrik Dalsgaard both out injured, Sergi Canos was pressed into service at right wing-back.
