Promotion chasers Huddersfield Town closed the gap on the Championship top two to six points with a hard fought win at Brentford.

Rajiv van La Parra’s freak goal just before the half-hour mark was the difference between two good footballing sides.

Brentford’s defence fell asleep and - when a quickly-taken free-kick found Van La Parra wide on the left - the Dutch winger’s fierce cross-shot was punched into the net by Bees goalkeeper Daniel Bentley for a winner that may have the dubious goals panel scratching their heads.

It was no more than Town deserved for a spirited, energetic and technically-impressive performance against Dean Smith’s in-form Brentford.

See how Town kept up the pressure on the Championship’s top two.

I’m very happy and very proud. It was a massive three points against a very good Brentford team and following a busy spell of games.

Huddersfield Town boss, David Wagner
