Coming straight off a loss to our boys in Newcastle, Brentford has broken their 8-game winless run by beating Norwich city 3 v 1 in a smashing game. Ivan Toney, coming back to the forum after some fighting within the club involving him using explicated language to describe his teammate, scored the complete hat-trick of the away team.

From one-nil to Brentford at halftime, it seemed clear this match was going to be a close one, but some desperate defending from Norwich lead to giving away two penalties. Ben Gibson was the main cause of concern for Norwich, giving away both penalties from a high foot and felling Ivan Toney within 6 minutes of each other.  

These were swiftly followed by two offside goals, one from each team, and with the clock ticking down it's fair to say the Canaries were getting desperate. But it was Teemu Pukki that gave the boys in yellow something to cheer about, grabbing a final goal in stoppage time. However, this loss for Norwich puts them at the bottom of the board, with 5 points clear from safety and only 11 games left this season, add to that having by far the lowest goal difference and regulations isn’t just on the cards, it's all but certain from here.

Meanwhile, this win puts Brentford back on track. Having won Burnley last weekend, the Bees will be buzzing at six points above relegation. (currently 8) With Christian Eriksen taking man of the match and Toney's hat-trick, is this the boost they need to reach the end of the season? Or will we see yet another drop in the rollercoaster that is Premier League football?
