Ollie Watkins scored twice as Brentford beat neighbours QPR 3-1 in the west London derby.

Grant Hall’s equaliser had cancelled out Watkins’ 23rd-minute opener and Rangers appeared to be in the ascendancy.

But Said Benrahma put the visitors back in front with a penalty just before the hour mark after Josh Scowen was controversially adjudged to have fouled Bryan Mbeumo.

And Watkins sealed the Bees’ win in the final seconds, slotting home with ease after being teed up by Mathias Jensen – the forward’s 10th goal of the season.

Watkins’ first goal of the night put Brentford ahead midway through a first half in which they were comfortably the better side.

He was allowed to drift away from Rs centre-backs Hall and Toni Leistner to head home Mbeumo’s right-wing cross.

Rangers, yet to keep a clean sheet this season, had been given a warning when Josh Dasilva carved open their fragile defence seven minutes earlier.
