The Bluebirds went in front when Peter Thorne netted after 15 minutes and Robert Earnshaw doubled their lead with the second 20 minutes later.
Paul Evans gave The Bees some hope when he pulled a goal back on 68 minutes, but Danield Gabbidon ensured the Welsh side of maximum points when he netted the third seven minutes later.
Brentford's misery was complete when Paul Gibbs was shown the red card late on.
It was Brentford's second defeat in three days after they lost 5-3 to Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday, and the loss denies Steve Coppell's side of the chance to climb into second place in the table.
The Bees remain in third spot, four points adrift of leaders Brighton.
