Said Benrahma's hat-trick helped Brentford get their promotion push back on track with a convincing 5-1 victory at Hull.
Thomas Frank's men had questions to answer following the home defeat to Nottingham Forest in midweek.
But once Benrahma scored after 12 minutes, there was only ever going to be one winner.

Indeed, just eight minutes later the visitors appeared home and hosed following Reece Burke's own goal.
That was until Brentford goalkeeper David Raya inexplicably allowed Ryan Tafazolli's misguided pass from the halfway line to squirm through his legs.
Raya's error proved immaterial, though, as Benrahma's brace, between which Ollie Watkins also scored, brought into sharp focus the difference in class between the two sides.
Hull have now lost their last four league games, three of which at home.
They must also now adjust to life without their best two players, Jarrod Bowen and Kamil Grosicki, who on Friday signed for West Ham and West Brom respectively.
If Hull fans arrived at the KCOM Stadium in pessimistic mood, Brentford's early goal will not have helped to raise spirits.
