Brentford boss Thomas Frank praised his side’s squad depth of goalscorers after their 3-0 win at Wigan.

Bryan Mbeumo, Kamo Mokotjo and Josh Dasilva capped of a dominant display by the Bees who now have the top six in their sights.

In four of their last five games Frank’s side have notched three goals, something the Griffin Park boss was in jubilant mood with.  

"It's very important we're scoring many goals as well as winning games," he said.

"And of course we've managed to win 3-0 without our top scorer, Ollie Watkins, getting on the scoresheet.

"That's four wins in five now, and that's very pleasing."

The results lifts Brentford to ninth but more importantly just two points off Fulham in the play-off spots.

Wigan meanwhile sink to 20th, and although they hover precariously above the drop zone, Frank was under no illusions how difficult the victory was to come by.

"It was another strong away performance from us, and it's very pleasing to be sat here reflecting on a 3-0 victory," said Frank.

"And it was against a very difficult opponent in Wigan. Wigan are a very difficult team to play against, especially here at home, and we controlled the game very well.

"We didn't give them a single chance throughout the game, and scored some very good goals of our own.

"We came here with a strong attitude - in that we respected our opponents, but at the same time we played with confidence.

"We put a lot of hard work into pressing forward in every single situation, and that high pressure was key in the performance.

"We also know Wigan are one of the best teams in the division for offensive set-pieces, and we kept them very quiet in that area."

Brentford face Reading after the international break.
