Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom has vowed to score the goals to fire Brentford back to the top of League One.
The 18-year-old made his Bees debut as a late substitute in Saturday's 1-1 at Walsall, but showed enough pace, power and trickery to suggest he will be a threat to lesser defences.
And the Gunners youngster hopes he can boost Brentford's promotion chances and help them leapfrog Leyton Orient with victory against Gillingham on Friday.
He said: “My main aim has to be to get more game time, get goals and force my way into the team. I’m confident I can do that.
“I just want to get goals and if I can’t do that then help the guys get them to win games. It’s as clear as that really.
“I like to use my pace to get behind defences and I did that at Walsall but my cross was just a little too high. It would have been nice to have made an instant impact.”
Akpom paid tribute to the 1,000 plus Bees fans that travelled to the Midlands, adding: “I couldn’t believe it. I’d only been on the pitch a few seconds and they already had a song for me. That felt brilliant and made me feel really at home.”
