Frankie Artus wants to emulate James Wilson in becoming a hit at Brentford.
The pair arrived at Griffin Park on loan from Bristol City on the eve of the new season.
But while Wilson has earned rave reviews for his displays at centre-back, Artus has been left kicking his heels.
The midfielder picked up an injury just days after joining and only returned to action in last Tuesday's Johnstone's Paint Trophy win over Yeovil.
And despite only getting 12 minutes to shine as a sub against Dagenham, Artus will get a further chance to show what he can do after having his loan extended this week.
He said: "James has been doing so well, and for me not to be involved has been disappointing. Now I just want to get myself in the side.
"My loan's been extended for another month, so hopefully in that time I can push for a starting spot.
"It was disappointing not to start against Dagenham, but I was expecting that after the run the boys have been on. It was good just to get on and be part of the win.
"I've enjoyed my time here. I had a disappointment with my injury, which put me back a bit as I was meant to play in one of the games I missed.
"But now I'm fit again I want to get back in the side and be a part of what's happening here."
Although Artus admits his dream is to break into the first team at Ashton Gate, he conceded he'd be happy to stay at Griffin Park for the season if the chance arose.
With Gary Smith still injured, Brentford have been lacking an attacking central midfielder.
Artus added: "I came out on loan to get some experience because I want to go back to Bristol City and have a push for the first team.
"I'm a Bristol lad, so that's my team and I want to play there. But if I was playing I would stay here for the season, I'll have to see what happens."
