Boss Andy Scott felt Brentford were well worth their 2-0 victory at Colchester.
Gary Alexander put the Bees ahead in the first half and Charlie MacDonald converted Michael Spillane's cross to seal the victory late on.
Scott was able to celebrate a sixth win from the last nine league outings.
He said: "We moved the ball well and got hold of it. When we did that, we looked the better side.
"We were looking tired at the end, but Michael Spillane put in a great ball for us to score a second goal and give us some breathing space.
"I don't think our keeper Richard Lee made more than two real saves in the whole game and we defended really well."
