Derby's playback prospects suffered a setback as they lost the lead three times in a dramatic 3-3 draw with Brentford at Griffin Park.

In a frantic first half, scoring four goals in 18 minutes, Harry Wilson brought the guests forward before Julian Jeanvier reached the level of the bees when he first reacted to turn the corner of Said Benrahma.

The men of Frank Lampard took the lead almost immediately through Jayden Bogle's first strike in professional football before Neal Maupay equalized and swept home after a quick break.

Wilson's second goal seemed to have won Derby ahead of Brentford's return through Benrahma seven minutes from time.

The Rams, who came into the game after a 6-1 attack against Rotherham, broke out after 13 minutes.

Tom Lawrence managed to find Wilson at the edge of the pits, and the Liverpool contract worker tapped the ball on his left foot before placing a shot perfectly in the lower left corner, leaving Luke Daniels with no chance.

After four games without a hit the signs for the men of Thomas Frank were menacing, but they soon made up.

The burly Jeanvier showed an excellent consciousness to break away from a mass of bodies and make an impressive effort past the surprised trowel Roos.

Derby was unmoved and got his noses back almost immediately. Bogle snaked past some weak challenges before shooting Daniel's right post in and out of the air.

Although Brentford fell back a second time, she did not drop her head and scored by the kind of free flow that became her trademark.

Benrahma stormed forward in an instant, feeding the onrushing Rico Henry, whose magnificent delivery of clinical Maupay was expected to place him 24th in all competitions.

The game was superbly prepared for the second phase, which started with the biggest flash point of the game, when Ashley Cole was made yellow for a dive, when he was persistent that he had been fouled. Ugly scenes followed as virtually the entire Derby team pushed for the referee before captain Richard Keogh restored order.

Shortly thereafter, the derby fans got furious with another handball claim, and Brentford might have gotten a penalty as the atmosphere reached fever.

The bucks piled on the pressure and five minutes after Mason Mount had hit the post, Wilson grabbed his second of the afternoon and clipped Fikayo Tomori's measured ball through the ball to curl up into the corner.

However, Brentford refused to bow and another equalizer came in as Keogh did not eliminate Sergi Canos' pass. Benrahma was able to line up from a distance of 15 meters and complete an incredible competition.

The managers

Thomas Frank: "It was a very physical game with many tackles that I think we handled well, and if you lost three times in a match, it has a very strong character to come back to, and our reaction was always one But I think we have to control our emotions even better if you have a goal or if there is a big mistake or bad decision.

"I know it's very hard when your heart rate is 220 beats per minute, but that distinguishes the good teams from the great teams, and we've shown what we've been capable of in the 25 or 30 minutes we've been in them absolutely dominated, but we have to take our risk.

Frank Lampard: "I felt we deserved to win the game, they have great talents in their team, but at 3-2 we have a great chance of getting a 4-2 advantage over Tom Lawrence, which the game kills.

"It will probably be a fight to the end and the point, if you look at the division, it was in a sense good for us."
