“But, at the same time, I am so focused about getting out of the Championship with Brentford that I do not pay too much attention. But it gives me confidence.”
As things stand, Brentford still have an opportunity to gain Premier League promotion through the play-offs.

“It has always been a target of mine to play in the Premier League and I really wish to play in the Premier League with Brentford,” the left winger said.
