Brentford fans are yet to see the best of Neal Maupay – despite a more than reasonable return of six goals in 19 games since joining the club from St Etienne.
Maupay had an especially memorable cameo at Birmingham City last week, coming on as a late sub and winning the penalty for Ollie Watkins' opener before netting the second himself, and also netted against Leeds on Saturday.
That made it three goals in four games for the Frenchman, who has also endured some frustrating games, but keeper Bentley believes there is a lot more to come from him.
“Neal was our super sub at Birmingham,” said Bentley. “He came on and made a difference, and that's what the gaffer expects all the subs to do, regardless of their position. You have to get on and make a difference, and he did that.
“We've all got points to prove we've all got to earn the shirt. We've got a good squad and competition for places, so to keep his place he's got to keep doing that. It's also up to Lasse to keep the shirt, and that's the cycle we've got at this club, it's healthy.
“I don't think we've seen the best of Neal yet, but I don't think we've seen the best of anybody. We've all got room to develop and improve, and we call all do things better as individuals and a squad, but he's certainly got the potential to come and do things like he did at Birmingham.
“Neal was brought in for a reason and he's shown what he can do. I think hes had a bit of a tough time with not scoring as many goals by his own admission that he'd like, but he's shown just how good he can be.”
