Alan McCormack insists Brentford’s players are determined not to let the recent change of manager affect their promotion bid.
The Bees extended their unbeaten run to nine matches with Saturday’s victory against Oldham in Mark Warburton first game in charge since taking over from Uwe Rosler last week.
And McCormack insists there has been little upheaval at Griffin Park.
He said: “It’s been business as usual. The owner told us he’s put Warbs in charge, not just because he’s got great credentials to be there, but because he knows the club and the players inside out.
“He brought a good few of us in during the summer and knew how Uwe coached us. He knew how everybody worked and wants to keep it that way.
“It’s a great set up and this club is run very well behind the scenes. We want to give ourselves the best possible chance of promotion. Nothing’s changed that.”
Brentford hope to continue their good run of form when they travel to fourth-placed Preston on Saturday.
And McCormack says the Bees will have to show their mettle at Deepdale.
“Preston is the next major step for us,” said the Irishman. “They were fighting for promotion to the Premier League not so long ago and are on the up again after a bit of a dip.
“Simon Grayson has them working very hard but we’ve got to play our own style of attacking football to try and get the three points.”
