Josh Dasilva admits his superb hat-trick has yet to sink in after playing a lead role in Brentford’s 7-0 Championship thrashing of Luton Town.

The midfielder netted twice in the final five minutes of the first-half and then swept home a late penalty to complete his treble, doubling his goal tally for the season in the process.

Bryan Mbeumo, Ollie Watkins, Mathias Jensen and Said Benrahma also netted for a rampant Bees side at Griffin Park in their biggest win in 25 years.

“I’m absolutely buzzing, it hasn’t really sunk in – I’m just delighted to get three goals and help the team,” Dasilva said of his first senior hat-trick.

“I don’t really score much with my right foot so it was nice to get one there, and I was delight that Said gave me the ball for the late penalty.

“We were relentless. During the week against Blackburn, we started slowly so it was important for us to start quickly this time.

“Luton struggled to cope and we were clinical. I’m enjoying my football, just trying to help the team as much as I can and get the results.”

Brentford’s performance was all the more impressive given their 1-0 defeat to Blackburn in midweek, returning to London in the early hours of Thursday morning.

But there was no rustiness against the struggling Hatters, putting in a performance to remember in their final season at Griffin Park.

Dasilva’s hat-trick was a major part of their success but goalscoring is not the only facet of his game that he’s been striving to improve.

“When I first came, the fitness and the defensive work was something that I’ve been working on,” added the midfielder.

“I’m starting to enjoy that work, I see how much that works the team and it’s good to be adding to my game on the training ground.

“I’m playing in a No.8 position so I want to get forward as much as I can to help the team, it doesn’t matter who gets the goals but it’s good to play that part.

“We’re all enjoying it at the moment. We’re all gelling well and understand each other, it took time but I think we’re there now, we’re always looking to improve and build on the next game.

“My mum has all of my trophies so I might take the match ball there!”
