The best is yet to come from Andre Gray, despite the Brentford striker being named Championship Player of the Month for November.
So says Bees boss Mark Warburton, who plucked the 23 year old striker from Conference champions Luton Town in the summer.
Following three goals in his first seven games for the Bees, Gray endured a barren run of eight games without a goal before finding his scoring boots again in the win over Derby County.
That was the first of five goals in as many games in November, helping Brentford to five straight wins and earning Gray his nomination.
Warburton said: “There is lot more to come from Andre, and it will be the first of many awards for him. He will have quieter periods to come, and he has had one barren run when Nick Proschwitz was right in there with a chance.
“Nick works very hard and has a great first touch, but the taller more physical forwards tend to give defenders a more comfortable game at this level. Andre is raw, powerful, quick and works the channels, and sometimes that works better in the Championship.
“The award will be a massive boost for him as a player and is testament to his hard work, as when he joined us at our pre-season training camp in Florida he was a million miles away from being ready.
“I'm sure the vultures will be circling, but that is football, any prey that leaves the club leaves on out terms and no other terms.”
In a double boost for the Bees, Warburton was also named Championship Manager of the Month for November following those five straight wins, but his modesty only allowed for praise for his entire staff and squad.
He added: “These are team awards and are testament to the hard work everyone does here. If we are building more shelves for them at the end of the season, we will be in a good place.”
