Brentford came from behind to beat Barnsley 3-1 courtesy of an Ollie Watkins hat-trick to end a run of just one win in seven games.

Barnsley took the lead in the opening minute as Cauley Woodrow curled the ball into the top left-hand corner of David Raya’s net.

However Watkins’ stooping header from Mathias Jensen’s inch-perfect cross 10 minutes before half-time made it 1-1.

And the Bees should have taken the lead four minutes later as Watkins hit the post with a low shot and rattled the bar with his follow-up before Said Benrahma fired wide from a great position on the rebound.

Watkins did put Brentford ahead in the first minute of the second half though, nodding in at the far post after Barnsley goalkeeper Brad Collins misjudged a Sergi Canos cross.

The forward then completed his treble midway through the second half when he headed home a Canos cross, the ball crossing the line despite Collins getting a hand to it.

The win moves Brentford up to 14th in the table while Barnsley are now without a win since the opening day of the season.
