New recruit David Hunt got just a couple of minutes of action in Saturday's excellent 2-1 win at Rochdale and is barely getting a look-in right now.
But the 26-year-old midfielder says he won't mind if he ends up being frozen out altogether - because it will mean the Bees are doing really well.
Londoner Hunt, a former Crystal Palace trainee, signed last month after being released by Shrewsbury Town as Andy Scott looked to bolster his options for the run-in.
He has only featured as a sub so far, but that is not bothering the patient Hunt, who is hoping to revive his career back in the south.
"The lads are doing well and there is nothing more at all I can do to see some more action," he told the Gazette.
"But I'm hoping that I don't get one because we'll be winning more games."
Hunt continued: "I'm not here to cause any problems and I know what the team is and know the best 11 is out there getting the points at the moment and if I'm needed I'll get on.
"It is just great to be involved. Anything I get is a bonus. To be at the top of the league, the lads are buzzing.
"It's lovely [at Brentford]. I'm not just saying that because it is my new club.
"Compared to many of the clubs I have been at it is up there with the best. It's the way we get looked after and also the lads that are here. I get on with them all and it is lovely to be at and I am just enjoying my football."
Hunt added: "To be honest you can't really compare it [with Shrewsbury]. It is like black and white. I've got no hard feeling to Shrewsbury but if I had to choose it would be here. Even if the lads weren't top of the league I'd still rather be here.
"It is everything. The whole team. The management. The togetherness. It's very rare and that is the reason why we are at the top."
Brentford extended their lead at the top of League Two to two points over the weekend after their win at Spotland.
It was another great day for Charlie MacDonald and Jordan Rhodes who were again on target. In the eight games they have played together since Rhodes' arrival from Ipswich on loan, the pair have bagged 12 goals between them - having also scored a hat-trick each.
During a competitive and entertaining match the Bees could easily have put five or six past a Rochdale side that was caught out at the back on numerous occasions. Yet poor finishing led to a nail-biting end to this top of the table clash.
But Bees' boss Andy Scott certainly thought his side were well worth their seventh away win of the campaign.
"We had a bit of pressure at the end but we could have won so much more comfortably it was ridiculous. You have to have two hands to count up how many good chances we had.
"We're more organised than we ever were. Where we feel that other teams are maybe standing still a bit we feel we are improving with a number of players desperate to get back in the side.
"We believe we've had a chance of getting out this division since the first ball was kicked. But you have to put your money where your mouth is and show it out on the pitch there."
Scott made one change to the side that comfortably saw off Port Vale last week, recalling Mark Phillips at centre back with Karleigh Osborne moving to the right of defence and John Halls dropping to the bench.
The Bees took the lead when they were awarded a controversial free-kick outside the Dale area and Sam Wood swung over a cross to the back post where Rhodes rose highest to head home from six yards.
While Rochdale struggled to get over their perceived injustice, the Bees capitalised to maximum effect when Charlie MacDonald doubled their lead after a quarter of an hour.
Wood again was the architect, cleverly beating his man close to the by-line and his low pass into the box was smartly tucked away by MacDonald from 10 yards out.
Rochdale pulled a goal back when they were awarded a dubious penalty after a ball into the box struck Ryan Dickson's arm. Tom Kennedy's firm shot from the spot gave the diving Ben Hamer little chance.
Rhodes was presented with two one-on-one chances but fluffed both, as he let the ball drift away following a poor touch and then just failed in an attempt to chip Fielding.
Finally substitute Nathan Elder raced clear but as he burst into the box Fielding did just enough to block his shot.
"We've had some flack going up north to places like Macclesfield and Accrington and not many people would have fancied us to come to Rochdale and get anything at all never mind a win," said Rhodes.
"We really did play well and it could have been six or seven.
"Ultimately it is the points that go on the board and we are three points closer to promotion. Now we go onto Bury next week and they are also flying high but we'll just take it one game at a time."

MoM: Sam Wood
Next Up: BURY
Griffin Park Saturday 3pm League Two
Manager: Alan Knill Position last season: 13th Form Guide: Bury consolidated third place with a 2-0 weekend home win over Notts County and they are unbeaten in eight games. A good away record has given them a chance of automatic promotion. They have seven wins and lost only four on the road. The wins came at Chesterfield (3-1),Barnet (2-1),Dagenham (3-1), Notts County (1-0),Accrington (2-1), Luton (2-1) and Grimsby (2-1) - the losses at Bradford City (0-1), Bournemouth (0-2),Shrewsbury Town (0-1) and Wycombe (1-2). Players to look out for: Andy Bishop has banged in 14 goals this season. Efe Sodje,brother of ex-Bee Sam, was on target against County.
Most recent meetings: Bury 1-0 Brentford (9 Aug 2008); Brentford 1-4 Bury (4 Mar 2008); Bury 1-2 Brentford (1 Sep 2007) - League Two. Head-to-head record: BEES Wins: 21 BFC Wins: 21 Draws: 15
Match Facts: It's all square after 57 meetings thanks to back-to-back wins for Bury for the first time since 1988. last season's shock 4-1 win at Griffin Park was not their best ever, however. They won 5-1 in west London in September 1960.
Forecast: After Rochdale, here is another tester against a top side who beat them earlier this season. The Bees have the momentum now, but Bury may just dig in to earn a share of the spoils.
In Midweek: GRIMSBY TOWN
Blundell Park Tuesday, 7.45pm League Two
Manager: Mike Newell Position last season: 16th.
Form Guide: Without a win in seven games after a 3-2 home defeat by Morecambe in midweek, the Mariners are treading water near the foot of the table. Bournemouth, even with their massive points deduction,are only two points behind now and threatening to overtake them in the battle to avoid dropping into the Conference. Town have only won twice on home soil - against Shrewsbury (1-0) in December and Rotherham (3-0) last month and have lost on seven other occasions - to Chesterfield (0-1),Chester (1-3), Barnet (0-1),Bradford City (1-3), Darlington (1-2),Notts County (0-1) and Bury (1-2).
Players to look out for: Adam Proudlock - a man with a decent goalscoring record in the lower divisions - has been signed on loan from Darlington and has five goals.
Most recent meetings: Brentford 4-0 Grimsby (16 Aug 2008); Grimsby 1-2 Brentford (24 Mar 2008); Brentford 0-1 Grimsby (8 Dec 2007) - League Two. Head-to-head record: GT Wins: 30 BEES Wins: 24 Draws: 4 [25a0] Match Facts: Charlie MacDonald netted twice, with Nathan Elder and Glen Poole also on target in an easy win for the Bees earlier this season. Oddly, there have been no draws in the past 34 meetings, with Grimsby just winning the majority (18).
Forecast: Bees to claim their eighth away win of the season.
Gazette forecast success rate: 23 out of 36 (64 per cent)
