Brentford fuelled their ambition of playing European football with a 3-2 home victory over fellow hopefuls Fulham to extend their unbeaten run in the Premier League to 12 games on Monday.

Ivan Toney’s second-half penalty and a late effort by Mathias Jensen sealed the points for ninth-placed Brentford against their west London rivals to edge them closer to the European qualification places.

Toney, who is facing FA charges and a possible ban after alleged breaches of gambling rules, coolly slotted his kick past Fulham keeper Bernd Leno in the 53rd minute after a clumsy foul by Issa Diop on Christian Norgaard.

Jensen then tapped in from a tight angle after a superb run and cut back by Kevin Schade in the 85th minute to kill of a below-par Fulham whose four-game unbeaten run came to an end.

Brentford had taken an early lead with a deflected shot by Ethan Pinnock but Fulham hit back shortly before halftime when Manor Solomon scored for the fourth successive league match.

Fulham’s Carlos Vinicius did grab a stoppage-time consolation with almost the last kick but Thomas Frank’s Brentford side are now unbeaten in the Premier League since October and have 38 points from 24 games, one point behind seventh-placed Fulham and four behind fifth-placed Liverpool.

Brentford have now gone 12 Premier League games without a loss. They stay in ninth, now level on points with Brighton and Hove Albion and just one behind Fulham. Next up for them is a trip to Everton. Fulham's own unbeaten run is over as they stay seventh. They host league leaders Arsenal on Sunday.

Brentford's unbeaten run continues as they beat Fulham 3-2. They made a lightning-quick start to the game, with Pinnock putting them ahead just six minutes in with a deflected shot. Mbeumo and Toney both hit the woodwork with free-kicks before Fulham equalised through Solomon, who headed in Pereira's shot, which had hit the bar. The Bees started the second half the same way as the first, and Toney coolly restored their lead from the spot. Jensen fired in a third late on, though Vinicius did pull one back for Fulham in the final seconds of the match.
