Loan star Dean Bowditch has not ruled out staying at Brentford after his deal runs out in January.
The form of Charlie MacDonald and Nathan Elder has seen the Ipswich striker struggle to make his mark since scoring on his Bees debut against Rochdale last month.
But he came on for the closing stages of Saturday's 2-1 win over Bradford and helped a frustrated Bees attack claim victory with two last-gasp strikes.
Bowditch said: "I came on and got the last 15 minutes and gave their defence a different problem than what Charlie gives.
"Now there's a lot of games over the Christmas period, so obviously we need a bigger squad, but I'm not sure what happens after that."
The 22-year-old is out of contract in the summer, but is due to return to Portman Road after the Bees' trip to Lincoln on January 10.
He said: "I'd be willing to stay longer if the circumstances are right. If I'm not going to go back and play, I'd love to stay. Brentford's a good club.
"My contract's up at the end of the season, but I don't know what's going to happen then either.
"But my main aim is to play football at a higher level, and the whole point of coming here's to get games under my belt and get some goals."
Fellow loanee Damien Scannell wants to extend his loan - if boss Andy Scott lets him.
The Southend star finally made his first appearance in a Bees shirt in Saturday's win over Bradford after being cup-tied for the Barrow defeat, and last week's postponement at Accrington.
And after that frustrating start, winger Scannell is keen to extend his stay at Griffin Park, which is due to end on January 5, even longer to make his mark.
He said: "I was only on the bench making the odd appearance at Southend, but I'd rather be here starting and being more involved.
"I just want to get games. I'm willing to stay and get more games, but it's up to the gaffer."
Another of Brentford's recent loan signings, striker Eric Odhiambo, is champing at the bit after joining from Leicester City.
The Foxes youngster got his first taste of action in a cameo at Barrow but was left warming the bench for the last-gasp win against Bradford.
However, he would also stay in west London if Scott comes calling.
"If the chance came to extend my loan, it's something I'd to look at," he said. "It's been frustrating not to get more game time.
"I wanted to come on against Bradford - but at the same time, we won the game."
The win moved Brentford up to fourth in League Two, with a game in hand over the top three. They visit Gillingham on Saturday.
