Match ends, Brentford 3, Coventry City 1.
Brentford 3-1 Coventry City
Brentford came from behind to beat Coventry City and remain just a point behind League One leaders Wolves.
Callum Wilson gave Coventry the lead from close range after David Button spilled Carl Baker's shot.
Coventry goalkeeper Joe Murphy saved Alan Judge's penalty after he had been fouled but Clayton Donaldson levelled with a toe poke after a Bees break.
Marcello Trotta made it 2-1 with a strike from the edge of the area before Alan McCormack's lob sealed victory.
Sky Blues manager Steven Pressley told BBC Coventry and Warwickshire:
"I'm a little bit angry and a little bit frustrated. We started ever so well. We scored - and had a number of great chances to add to that.
"Joe Murphy makes an incredible save from a disappointing penalty, but we didn't learn from that. The manner of their goals was a little bit soft, and we found ourselves with a mountain to climb.
"We have to toughen up, there's no doubt about it. We're not winning enough tackles and that has to improve, and just now we have a slight problem in respect of loan players.
