Brentford summer signing John Egan struck twice inside eight second-half minutes to help his side claim their first three points of the season at home to Ipswich Town.
On his home debut, the ex-Gillingham defender powerfully headed in Lewis MacLeod’s cross to break the deadlock.
He then fired home left-footed after goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski could only parry a low Nico Yennaris shot.
That secured Brentford’s first home win against Ipswich since November 1955.
Against a side beaten at Huddersfield on the opening day, Mick McCarthy’s Ipswich were made to rue the squandering of a hatful of first-half chances.
Last week’s hat-trick debutant Grant Ward forced Bees keeper Daniel Bentley into a smart save with just two minutes gone before Conor Grant’s superb curling free-kick flew narrowly past the upright.
Everton loanee Grant went close again on 21 minutes when he raced down the left and cut in from the byline to force Bentley to tip onto his post with a low drive.
But, after the interval, it was a different story as the unmarked Egan headed in at the far post before then slotting his second into the empty net.
