Midfielder Christian Norgaard insists Brentford can’t enjoy the win over QPR too much despite claiming bragging rights in the final West London derby at Griffin Park

The Bees secured a 3-1 win and another three points over Rangers to make it seven home wins in a row in their final season at the stadium.

All three Brentford goals came within the first 33 minutes, with Said Benrahma, Bryan Mbeumo and Ollie Watkins all finding the net.

And although there was more defending to do after Rangers got a goal back through Nahki Wells in the second half, the game was already won.

But Norgaard is keen not to dwell on the result too much, instead looking ahead to the rest of the season.

 “You can’t afford to be too happy when you win and can’t afford to be too sad when you lose. It is the balance in between and we will keep doing this,” the Dane said.

“We aren’t satisfied no matter what, which says a lot about the team.

“We weren’t disappointed being 3-0 up at half time, but we knew it could have been more if we had been more clinical and credit to the team for this.

“It is a good derby win. Their goal came out of nothing and we will work on this. It is a big boost, but we have had a lot of boosts so far this season and can’t afford to get carried away.”

Brentford manager Thomas Frank also praised the team for their first-half performance, helping make Griffin Park a “fortress” after battering Luton Town 7-0 at home earlier in the season.

Frank’s side will next test out their home form when they face former Premier League champions Leicester City in the fourth round of the FA Cup on January 25.

Before that, however, comes a trip to Huddersfield Town this Saturday as the Bees look to continue a season which is quickly become a chase for promotion.

“The first half was extremely good. The second was a little disappointing but we have to respect QPR because they are a very good team going forwards and we managed this well,” said Frank.

“A lot of confidence has been gained from another home win.”
