Marvin Williams hopes his goal scoring cameo up front at Luton will give boss Andy Scott food for thought if Charlie MacDonald or Nathan Elder get injured.
The 21-year-old has been deployed as a right-winger since his arrival from Yeovil Town in the summer.
But Scott has identified him as one of three possible striking options - along with rookies Moses Ademola and Ross Montague - should MacDonald or Elder be unavailable.
Williams notched his first Brentford goal at Kenilworth Road on Tuesday night when he robbed Luton defender Michael Spillane and rounded goalkeeper Conrad Logan before slotting home to give The Bees a 2-0 lead.
He said: "Personally, I like to think playing up front, I did enough to get into the back of the gaffer's head. The two lads in the first team are doing well. I know it will be difficult to get in the team there.
"But I always said I feel I will be a striker in the future. It's the position I played when I was young, but I'm happy playing on the right too.
"I feel I can merge the two, and I'm happy to play anywhere to get back in the team.
