Best Day Out: Brentford 5-1 Hull City - 23rd February 2019

Said Benrahma starred with his first Brentford hat-trick as they came from behind against Hull to secure their sixth straight home victory in style.

The Algerian winger set up Kamohelo Mokotjo to cancel out Fraizer Campbell's opener for the visitors before grabbing a quick-fire double to put the Bees on top before half-time.

Top scorer Neal Maupay made it 4-1 with his 22nd goal of the season early in the second half and the classy Benrahma completed his treble 10 minutes from time.

One to Forget: Brentford 2-3 Swansea - 8th December 2018

Brentford head coach Thomas Frank likened his side's start against Swansea City to a "horror movie" before they eventually lost 3-2.

Swansea's dominant first-half performance saw them race into a 3-0 lead inside half an hour with goals from Wayne Routledge, Leroy Fer and a Chris Mepham own goal.

Brentford did pull the game back to within a goal with 20 minutes to play, courtesy of Ollie Watkins and Said Benrahma, but the Bees fell to a fourth defeat in their past five games.

Top Goalscorer: Neal Maupay – Recently crowned the EFL Player of the Year at the London Football Awards, the Frenchman has 22 goals to his name this term.

Number of clean-sheets: 6

Points picked up at home: 33 – Won the last six games at home

Points picked up on the road: 10 – Just one away win all season

Key Player: Romaine Sawyers – The classy central midfield player is an excellent technician in the middle of the park and key to starting so many of Brentford's attacks.

Emerging young talent: Ezri Konsa – The England Under-21 international has been a regular for the Bees in defence this season and looks a very promising prospect.

Previous Result: Sheffield Wednesday 2-0 Brentford - 26th February 2019

Steven Fletcher scored both goals as Sheffield Wednesday beat Brentford 2-0 to extend their unbeaten run to seven Championship games.

Last time out against the R’s: QPR 3-2 Brentford - 10th November 2018

A ten-minute purple patch saw Rangers score three goals and come from behind to take victory in this rip-roaring west London derby at Loftus Road.

Neal Maupay registered his 12th league goal of the campaign to hand Brentford a 22nd-minute lead. But QPR responded in emphatic fashion to ultimately secure all three points and rise to 10th in the table.

Massimo Luongo got the ball rolling for the R’s before further goals from Joel Lynch and Nahki Wells at the Loft End gave Steve McClaren’s Hoops a commanding lead.

The Bees did respond with a second goal through Henrik Dalsgaard in the 81st minute, though couldn’t add a third during a tense finale.
