Brentford ran out comfortable winners at Derby County on Saturday to pile the pressure on the top two in the Championship with just three fixtures remaining.
The Bees were superb throughout the 90 minutes and Ollie Watkins gave them the lead inside the first five minutes of the match after an excellent pass from Josh Da Silva.
Jason Knight levelled for Derby, but Said Benrahma soon stole the show with a brace that included a wonderful curling effort from all of 30-yards.
The Algerian winger has been in incredible form since the season returned, and he’s given the Bees a great opportunity at earning promotion to the Premier League come the end of the campaign.
The result has confirmed a place in the play-offs for Thomas Frank’s side, but they’ll be hoping to challenge West Bromwich Albion and Leeds United to the top two places in the division over the next week and a half.
Here’s how Bees supporters reacted to Benrahma’s fantastic display…

Benrahma. Just what we needed at this time of season! 1st third of the season all about Watkins, 2nd third about mbeumo and Watkins, since then it’s all been about Said! Brilliant keep it going lads #BrentfordFC

My actual word Saïd Benrahma. Just amazing to win 7 in a row. Anyone else have a heart attack when Frank left us with zero defensive midfielders on the pitch with 20 mins to go and a 3-1 lead to defend? Gamble paid off though. Josh and Christian need a rest #BrentfordFC
