Brentford held off Cardiff's second-half fightback to continue their impressive SkyBet Championship promotion push with a 3-2 win at Cardiff City Stadium.

The Bees were coasting after first-half goals from Alex Pritchard, Andre Gray and Jota Peleteiro Ramallo put them in total control.

Craig Noone and Kenwyne Jones pulled goals back for Cardiff, but the visitors held on to make it seven wins from their last eight games.

Cardiff, meanwhile, fall further away from the play-off places as they struggle for consistency under Russell Slade.
