Spencer hoping to make Bees debut

Loan signing James Spencer is hoping to be given the green light to make his Brentford debut against Coventry on Tuesday.

Spencer, who joined last week from Huddersfield Town, struggled with a chest infection ahead of Saturday’s defeat at Doncaster and was an unused substitute.

But the promising young forward says he has now recovered and is itching to play.

“I had a bit of a chest infection but I feel fine now and if the manager calls on me I’ll be ready,” he told West London Sport.

“The medical team has got to give me the all-clear as well so I’ll probably be on the bench. But I can’t wait to get started and score some goals for Brentford.”

The 20-year-old netted 10 goals in 27 appearances during a previous loan spell at Cheltenham in League Two and is now keen to show what he can do in the third tier.

“Brentford are a top club in League One and I’ve only ever played in League Two, so I want to prove myself at this level,” he said.

“The club have helped me settle in very quickly – they’re a great bunch of lads here – so I’m ready to go.

“I know my coach at Huddersfield says I’m strong and can out-muscle defenders, but I want to improve the other sides of my game and score more goals.”
