Jordan Rhodes hopes Jim Magilton will let him stay at Brentford FC for the rest of the season after hat-trick.
The on-loan striker caught his boss at Ipswich's eye with a hat-trick in the Bees' 3-1 win at Shrewsbury on Saturday.
And although boss Andy Scott wants to keep Rhodes beyond the agreed month, Magilton has admitted he may recall the teenager.
But Rhodes said: "I'm really enjoying it at Brentford, and hopefully I can stay and score the goals that win them promotion.
"I am learning a lot, especially off Charlie MacDonald, who is fantastic and I have a lot of admiration for."
Rhodes opened the scoring with a shot on the half-volley from the right, having chested down a Ryan Dickson free-kick after just two minutes at Shrewsbury.
On 18 minutes it was 2-0, Rhodes this time popping up on the left to take advantage of a sloppy back pass from Kelvin Langmead.
And he completed the perfect hat-trick on 29 minutes, heading home an Adam Newton cross following a superb run by the right winger.
