Aston Villa caretaker boss Aaron Danks, speaking to BBC Sport: "Really happy. I thought the boys from the opening five minutes they played with intensity and sustained that. I am really, really pleased with the game and performance.
"Going into the game you always have a bit of nerves and apprehension but the moment I was on the touchline I was just focused on the performance. To see the fans and players at the end it was a nice feeling.
"It was a really worked set piece off the training ground for the first goal so credit to the staff for that and the players for executing it.
"I had to pinch myself. We asked for energy, we asked for lots of endeavour and work rate and the boys brought that. The gameplan was a lot of phycological stuff as well, about our attitude and application and togetherness.
"We felt for a few weeks this was coming. We had put some good performances in but the goals were just missing. Today we were clinical and ruthless and today is the result you get from that.
"I have been asked to lead the team at the moment and will continue to do that and will step forward Monday morning to prepare the team as we go and until I hear otherwise it is full focus and energy on that."
Brentford boss Thomas Frank, speaking to Sky Sports: "First of all congratulations to Villa with a deserved win. They have been struggling so Aaron Danks and his coaching staff have done a good. job.
"We knew they would come with energy. We should have done better with the set piece for the first goal but it was a well played set piece. It was game over after 14 minutes but we never gave up.
"We have come back from 2-0 down twice this season, we know we are capable of that. The big thing in football is no matter what happens stay disciplined. Stay focused and don't make mistakes but unfortunately we didn't do that today."
Away form a concern: "Yes and no. I think sometimes it is a little bit random the order of games and what happens in theg ames but black and white in the stats we have not got enough points in away games.
"We need to bounce back and come out strong from this situation."
