Referee:

Doubles from Lasse Vibe and Jota gave Brentford a comfortable 4-0 win of Derby County at Griffin Park. Vibe scored the only goal of the first-half when he converted from close range and The Rams only spell on top in the match came at the start of the second period. They rarely threatened the Brentford goal though and Jota curled home to make it 2-0 with twenty minutes to go. The Bees turned the screw in the closing stages and Vibe and Jota both grabbed their second of the afternoon as any lingering hopes of the play-offs were put to bed.

Gary Rowett went with an un unchanged team following the late victory last weekend but Brentford started the better of the two sides with Sergi Canos firing over the top after a weaving run into the area. The Bees continued to look dangerous going forward and Chris Baird cleared off the line after Jota`s run and effort. Lasse Vibe missed the target from inside the area and Daniel Bentley did enough after a break from The Rams to deny David Nugent after he was released by Craig Bryson.

Scott Carson was forced into a reaction save after Baird misjudged a cross and nearly put through his own goal and the pressure eventually told on thirty-two minutes when Jota`s deflected effort fell to Vibe and the Danish striker converted from close range to give his side the lead

Darren Bent and Will Hughes replaced Nugent and Bryson at the break as Derby went in search of a way back into the match and Tom Ince was denied by Bentley before Jacob Butterfield fired over as they began the half brightly. Marcus Olsson was alert to stop Nico Yennaris taking advantage of a dangerous Canoe cross and Brentford doubled their lead with twenty minutes to go when Jota`s finish from the edge of the area made it 2-0.

Carson kept out Vibe`s effort after he ran at the Derby defence but he was not to be denied as he curled home a neat finish with eight minutes to go and The Rams` misery was completed on the stroke of full-time when Jota left Richard Keogh trailing in this wake as his pace took him through on goal and his neat finish put the finishing touches to a comprehensive win for Brentford.
