JAMES Wilson has been told he needs to talk to his defenders more - and the youngster agrees, writes Yann Tear.
Wilson, who is on a month-long loan from Championship Bristol City, told the Gazette: "It's been good playing alongside Alan Bennett. He's really commanding and a good talker.
"And he's probably right when he says I don't talk enough, but that will come in time.
"I'm here for experience and to learn about things like that. That's the main thing, although winning's all the better as well."
Wilson, a former Wales U19 international, had an impressive home debut against Grimsby and set up the first goal with a fine dribble into the heart of the visitors' defence.
He seemed to gain in confidence after that and it has increased the youngster's desire to do well and maybe extend his stay when the time comes.
"I'm not sure whether there's an option to extend beyond my month here, but I'd be well up for continuing if it means more first-team football," he said.
"[Bristol City boss] Gary Johnson told me it would be a great experience playing at Brentford and that it was a good opportunity Andy Scott was giving me.
"I was looking to go out on loan this year but this is a higher standard than I was hoping for, to be honest.
"It's been perfect so far. The team have surprised me. Drop-ping down two leagues, I didn't realise they would be this good.
"I think we've got a good chance this year of pushing on."
Wilson added: "My speed and my covering are my main strengths but I need to work on my heading.
"If I'm playing every week, it will be brilliant. I haven't played for the first team at Ashton Gate up to now, only the reserves. My first aim remains to make the breakthrough at Bristol City."
